Children are excited and behaving good for the expectation of a special gift from their parents. Godparents are starting to save money for the giftgiving or exchange gift on the midnight of the 24th of December and for the “Noche Buena”. I’m sure prices of groceries and other seasonal food items will go up to the detriment of the buying public. Why not start your buying spree this early to avoid customers’ long queue at the cash register’s counter. Early shopping saves time and money. There are foods you prepare for Christmas that are also cooked for the new year’s eve. You can buy in bulk ingredients for your salad, ham and chicken preparations. If your budget permits buy cheap wines instead of the expensive ones. This is not the time for a show off.
