I’m sure some of the family will plan on shopping over the break but I’m more of a last-minute shopper. It helps that my wife does all the shopping and I only have to buy one gift. Of course, the real reason for this holiday is to reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for. I personally have way more things to be thankful for that
