Wrapping Paper

This morning before Mass I needed to wrap a Christmas present for my goddaughter. I rolled out the blue paper with white snowflakes on my bed and began cutting it. That's when I wondered if everyone wraps Christmas presents on their bed. I've seen House Hunters or the Home & Garden section of the newspaper talking about wrapping rooms. I wondered what kind of people could devote an entire room of their house to wrapping presents.
When I wait to wrap all of the presents on the night before Christmas, my back begins to hurt from leaning over the bed. It seems a small price to pay. Or, I could wrap a few every day so that I'm finished on Christmas Eve.
How about you, where do you wrap?

I sat on my couch to wrap presents. I was watching TV while I wrapped.

I wrap on my bedroom floor too, though I do vacuum first because of "my" hair that gets stuck to the tape and static-clings to the paper.

I was never so embarassed (not exactly true) as the year my back went completely out the day after wrapping all my gifts on the kitchen counter, no less.

I buy less gifts now.
