1. Have you seen any holiday commercials yet?
2. Will you or have you ever participated in Black Friday?
3. Do you love or despise holiday leftovers?
4. Have you seen any (non-commercial, i.e. store) holiday lights yet?
5. Have you been good to Santa’s way of thinking?

1. Have you seen any holiday commercials yet?
Yes. The Gap is the first to remind people what the Holiday Season is all about: consumerism.

2. Will you or have you ever participated in Black Friday?
I have and I won't again. I'm not the type to buy things for the sake of not paying full price for them. I have a list for the girls. I'll probably use cyber Monday for that, though.

3. Do you love or despise holiday leftovers?
I love them. They're the official food of my Video Game Holiday. (Thanksgiving)

4. Have you seen any (non-commercial, i.e. store) holiday lights yet?
Yes. The colder it gets, the more we'll see!

5. Have you been good to Santa’s way of thinking?
Not if Santa watches me drive...

If you are to believe the ads, that is the case. You can only be happy if you ago deeply in debt at Christmas.

I take advantage of Cyber Monday, too, but at least I don't have to worry about finding parking spaces of having someone try and run me down for the sake of a few dollars off something.

1) Have you seen any holiday commercials yet? A few, mostly for the sort of food that Aussies eat at Christmas…. But yes, a few (fake) snowy scenes and red-coated Santas have popped up on the telly.

2) Will you or have you ever participated in Black Friday? Not as Americans know it; here, Black Friday simply means any Friday 13th, and at work we often have morning tea with all-black food.

3) Do you love or despise holiday leftovers? Chrissie leftovers on Boxing Day is one of life's pleasures, actually. Keep in mind that the food is already cold (we have chicken, others have cold turkey, ham, seafood… and salad) and icecreamy desserts. What's not to love? :)

4) Have you seen any (non-commercial, i.e. store) holiday lights yet? No, that'll probably be early December - and by then it doesn't even start getting dark till quite late... so seeing any involves going out quite late.

5) Have you been good to Santa’s way of thinking? Boringly so, I fear...
