1. Do you tip/give gifts to your mail carrier, hair dresser, and/or garbage collector for the holidays?I give a large tip to my hairdresser but not to the others.
2. Do you mail Christmas cards? Do you receive a lot of holiday cards? I don't mail Christmas cards anymore. I receive two or three photo cards every year and they go on my fridge for months.
3. Do you like to wrap holiday gifts, or is it more of a chore for you?With a large family it's become a chore. There's just SO MANY gifts to wrap.
4. What will you do to relax this weekend? I'm not sure relaxing is gonna' happen this weekend. I've got a lot of Christmas-related stuff to do.

Cash gifts to the mail carrier and hair dresser.

2. Do you mail Christmas cards? Do you receive a lot of holiday cards?

I enjoy it more now than when I was working.

4. What will you do to relax this weekend?
Dinner and a play with good friends.

1. No, and I'm honestly so surprised reading all of these replies. Apparently it's a common thing to give your hair dresser a Christmas gift? That just sounds weird to me and would never in a million years have occurred to me, honestly. Obviously I'm the odd one out! I get my hair cut like 2-3 times per year. I went the week before Thanksgiving. Hopefully she wasn't expecting a gift with that timing!

2. No and no.

3. Neither. I don't mind it, but it's not something I get excited about either.

4. I'm watching silly Christmas movies on Netflix and eating whatever I want. Shouldn't be doing that second part, but as my teammate pointed out- "You can get on the wagon when it's January and it's sad and cold and there's nothing else fun to focus on" .

I used to give a Christmas tip when I had a regular hairdresser.

I send and receive a few Christmas cards.

I enjoy wrapping Christmas presents. I am trying to use up old wrapping paper before I buy more!

I will put up Christmas decorations and walk between rain showers!

Yes to mail carrier. I give a personal gift to my hairdresser as she is now my close friend.

Yes!!! I make them with each person in mind. I donít get as many as I give any more, which makes me sad.

I enjoy the wrapping. Put on. Hallmark movie or Christmas music.

4. What will you do to relax this weekend?
Had a mom and me day with youngest DD and now binge watching the original Beauty and the Beast series.

1. I give a generous gift to my hairdresser because it’s a more personal service but I’ve never given to the trash collector or mailman.

2. I stopped sending most Christmas cards years ago when it just got to be too much work. The numbers I receive have dwindled accordingly.

3. It’s more of a chore for me to wrap gifts so I mostly use gift bags instead.

4. Although I’m not Jewish, I will be going to a Hanukkah celebration at a dear friend’s home tomorrow. It’s a beautiful tradition. I’m taking See’s candies and a box of “gelt” which are chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil.

No I don't. I didn't know you could tip the mail carrier. I will tip her more if I see her in December.

Yes I do to several people. I might receive 10 cards.

I hate wrapping any gifts. I buy bags.

I have watched TV, talked on phone & been on the internet.
