Many of us eat too much over Christmas, and more than we would normally eat.

Were you given many boxes of chocolate as Christmas presents?

Did you give any?

I got 2 boxes of chocolate, and I gave 3! Not to the same people, as I had to give three to acquaintances who had done favours for me and just did not know what else to buy as do not know they on a personal level, but only business.

by Finy
Yes and Yes.....

I DO NOT WANT to see any Chocolate for a long time.

I gave some .
I don't usually give or receive it as presents, but I did buy some to share on Christmas Day, plus a little private stash (I only eat vegan chocolate, so I wanted to make sure there would be some around I could eat too).
Not usually, but this year we received a lot of chocolate. YUM!

I remember my visit it was amazzzing! :)

I gave none and received none. Quite a feat.
by Rice
We only gave it once and we received lots of chocolate. I don't like receiving chocolate as a gift.

No all of my friends and family know that I hate chocolate. I have never had a liking to it even as a child. I will sometimes eat white chocolate, but it's not really chocolate.
You lucky thing!!

I didn't give chocolate to anyone,but my lovely neighbour who helps me with my shopping gave me a beautiful box of Lindt truffles selection. Just perfect as these boxes hold a dozen exquisite and delicious handmade chocolates which are a bit too special to buy for myself!!
oh no Jules, that sounds like you are not thinking you are special!
by Finy
Jules! Buy yourself a treat like that every now and then. As mothers, sometimes we are too giving. Spoil yourself.
by Rice
Oh! I DO buy plenty of special treats for myself,Have NO fear on THAT score!!!
Chocolate coated Freeze-dried Strawberries and Raspberries from UK last year,which lasted almost the whole year as I bought out every pack I could find after LAST year's Christmas!! And then fairly recently I spoilt myself with Dark choc-coated Orange Slices made by a South Aussie company,and I have been eeking these out so there would be one pack left for this week!! Oh Yes indeed!! I always spoil myself with chocolate,and very often with Lindt,just not the ones which my neighbour so kindly gave me!!
Another item I do like to spoil myself with is very good quality linen and towels,as there is nothing to compare with this gorgeous year -round treat!! I know it has nothing to do with chocolate,but it does have lots to do with spoiling myself!!!

Jules, you have no respect for my diabetes. Wahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! I rescind my image of you as a little match girl. ヽ(´▽`)/
by Rice
And now,dear Rice,I feel so SAD,as I had no notion at all that you suffer with Diabetes. But then you and Finy both DID say that I should spoil myself with special chocolates or whatever treat makes my day!!! I shall think of you with kindness as I gobble down my chocolate from now on,I shall eat one for me ,and one for YOU!!!
by Jules
Oooh. That makes me happy, thinking of you eating chocolates on my behalf. You go girl . . !
by Rice
Neither one.
We didn't get any this year thank goodness. However we did get some biscuits. I gave a Terry's Chocolate Orange to my mum. I know she wouldn't have had one for a long time. I got one for myself too, as we hadn't had one for a long time either. Chocolate is an all purpose gift. Most people like chocolate and it is relatively inexpensive. If the person receiving the gift is just an acquaintance, you may not be prepared to spend a lot of money on them, so a box of chocolates is something small and inexpensive, that still conveys your wish for a merry Christmas.
I did give some chocolates this year but try not to as I know others give as gifts. As 2 of my daughters birthdays fall just before Christmas and we decided last year not to give the adults in the family gifts, it just didn't seem right that they get nothing, so all 3 of them, including eldest granddaughter got chocolate. I even had tall chocolate santa clause chocolates in the pantry for the grandchildren and great grandchildren but forgot to take them and put under the tree so they are still there until next time I visit. I do like chocolate but have been known to throw unopened boxes out after 12 months simply because I never got around to eating them. As for myveldest grandson, he received two giant jars of Nutella instead, this being his preference. He's been known to finish one in a day.
Yes to both questions, t try to buy chocolates for people that they usually doesn't buy for themselves, a big special treat...
Generally no, I don't receive chocs as gifts because friends and family know I am not particularly fond of chocolate. I did give a friend a box of chocolates this Christmas of the kind she particularly liked.
Didn't get, or give, any. Sad!
That is very sad!!! good grief. :(

I love the look of the ones in the photo as they look like dark chocolates! I gave a bag of those tiny ones, & someone gave me a stocking of different milk chocolate ones. As I don’t like milk chocolate, I’ll donate them to an op-shop, which I didn’t get around to doing last year, & they’re still in the house somewhere!
Yes and Yes and now I feel like a chocolate.
