Getting ready for Christmas ( well, sort of )


#1

November is almost coming to an end, and I’m pleased to say I did fine this month. :slight_smile:
I’ll be flying to the states for about 2 weeks at the start of December to visit my friends, eat and shop like crazy, and then come back home.

I am going back and forth between whether I should go on vacation more or not.
I don’t think I’ll be that busy with gigs, but on the other hand there is a possibility of getting bombarded with orders…
Maybe I can close some of the gigs and have just one of them available. I know, I’m going on vacation, I shouldn’t be working, but still I feel like I can work on some gigs during the day.

BTW I started wearing a tie to work from October ( with ghosts and pumpkins on them) and I’m hoping to get some silly cute Christmas neckties while I’m in the states so I can wear them when I get back. I can’t find them in Japan which kinda sucks.

Does anybody wear silly funny looking seasonal ties??

Not me! image But here are some cute ones.


#3

I’m more of a hat guy. I wear funny looking Christmas hats all December!

I love Christmas! The Carols, food, decorations, everything.


#4

Loooove the snowman one :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:


#5

Then there is Ugly Christmas Sweater Day that the high schools have here. I love owls, so this is the one I bought for that special day. :smiley:

Historically December has always been a slow month on Fiverr - that’s the only month when my earnings have gone below $1,000. That happens every December. That’s good in a way, I can relax a bit, do shopping, watch movies, read books, etc. [Actually, things start slowing down from this point - 18th or 19th November and they pick up after January 10th.]

Hi Writer. I haven’t “seen” you much here lately. You must be busy. How cold does it get in the winter in your country?


#10

Not that cold, but I still purchased a couple of thin sweaters.


#11

I did quite well this month as well. I have earned enough in 2 days to pay my rent next month, so I am doing good :slight_smile:


#12

Ahh, the 3 Stooges…Stoogers? Stroogers? Sorry, I forgot the name…(I like the tie though!!)

If I wear that tie to work I’ll need to explain it to my students every time, I don’t think those guys are well know back here in Japan…


#13

Thank you for reminding me, I need to get a Christmas sweater for my mom…
she requested a “classic” looking one and not the ugly ones…well I hope I can find one!!


#14

Oh yes. I like the elf one. We have some funny ones here, with lights, a moustache, santa’s pants, etc

Those sweaters lol, my wife wants us to order a family collection from amazon for us and the kids to take a nice family picture.

@zeus777 I will send if I find them online.


#15

I don’t wear ties at all, but I do sometimes wear silly funny looking seasonal socks, if that counts. :red_circle: :nose: :deer:


#16

Last Christmas my friend gave me a pair of socks that says “WHAT THE ELF!?” on it.
It’s green, red, white, and gold. It’s very…festive.
And puts me in the holiday mood, so yes, it counts!!


#17

Cannot stand festive clothing - makes my head shake and eyes roll uncontrollably.

I’ll sing along with “Fairytale of New York” a couple of times and answer the phone by saying “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favourite color?” to people I know. That’s about it.
If I’m feeling really festive, I’ll get a Christmas tree air freshener to hang in the window.

The funny thing about Christmas in America is that some stores start stocking Christmas stuff in September.


#19

As late as that! :slightly_smiling_face:

Doesn’t Tesco have the Panntone next to the Easter baskets?
