Christmas shopping done!
Started my christmas shopping this week, and am just about done with it. Have purchased all necessary gift cards. Just have to do some gift wrapping and then I am all set.

The entire process didn't take much time. The only major decision to make was budgeting how much to spend overall. Wanted to avoid the situation of some of my friends who end up overspending on buying gifts and then regret it when credit card bills start coming.

Both as a gift giver and gift recipient, I believe that it is not worth it to get into debt by overspending on gifts. That may make one day of the year merry but unnecessarily causes unhappiness for the rest of the year, trying to pay for the gifts. Unfortunately, some times many of us take on just too much pressure and place overemphasis on gift giving at christmas time, when the main thing should be to ensure that friends and family are there for each other when needed. Oh well.

Moving on, haven't yet purchased the large TV. In response to one of the questions I had received regarding finding differences between different types of large screen TVs, I had primarily relied on the internet to find out the differences between LCD, plasma TV, projection TV, LCD, DLP, CRT, etc. Some of the Web sites that provide such info are as follows:

CNET - Four Styles of HDTV

Sound and Vision mag - DLP vs LCD

WikiHow - Buying Plasma TV

WikiHow - Evaluating DLP, LCD and Plasma TV and HDTV Quality - A High-Def TV Buying Guide

Here's an interesting take on HDTV:
