  2. Gorgeous parts! Merry Christmas to you! If you are like me, it's impossible to purchase a Christmas present for you. Purchasing your own gifts has certain advantages.
    You get EXACTLY what you want.
    You can say things like "I get the greatest pleasure from giving. Please make a donation in my name to <>.", when asked what you would like for Christmas.

    Nice work!
