The angst over shopping for Christmas is not a new thing...The more things change, the more they stay the same...

In what year do you think this quote from the NYTIMES was made? (Click HERE to see the answer)
 ""It is astonishing to see what lengths some people will go to in giving presents at Christmas. I am told they will borrow, go in debt, or even steal to gratify their desires. The ladies get the worst of it, of course. It requires great skill to manage the whole business successfully and economically. I was told by a lady friend not long ago that in her exchanges last Christmas one of her friends returned, through a mistake, the gift she had sent to her the year before."" (HT: Division of Labour)
