We buy throughout the year. Adulthood.....no big deal. Kids...different story.

Actually, we bought two bedroom suits this last November. With all the accessories. We are chillin and happy.

Tomorrow is a turkey day and I can't wait to be a piglet!

Merry Xmas to all and to all a good night!

P.S. We went without furniture for four years while fixing up the house. So good to have comfort.

We cut way back too. I baked my husband's favorite cakes and pies, got him new PJs and underwear. He got me practical gifts as well. I'm very happy with what we're giving each other.

Tomorrow, we'll have a nice Christmas dinner with our kids, give each other very useful presents, and totally enjoy the day.

We cut back this year in general. But REALLY cut back on Christmas this year.

Just waiting it out to see how things go. Should have a good idea of the next year in about 2 weeks. I'm hoping my work doesn't have to have another layoff, just had 1 in November.

I'm not a Christian. I respect your religion and holiday and don't mean to take anything away from what you practice. But please show the same respect for my traditions (buying gifts)

Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Gift1 = $200
Gift2 = $200
Total = $400
$400 x 50% = $200

What's the point.

 Quoting: HJTRAS

My parents never buy anything for each other and even as a kid I never saw them exchange much. My father always said "I refuse to be obligated to buy her something but rather I would like to buy her things when I want too"

So he might buy her a fur coat but at the start of November instead of a date corrupted with corporate greed and pagan holidays.
I also don't like getting gifts or giving them as I 1) hate corporations that make holidays all about material things and 2) as a Christian I don't like participating in a pagan tradition that the Catholic church "created" to form Pagan religions and Christianity together.

Christians should read this and REALLY rethink some things. It's amazing how many holidays are corrupted with pagan worships and traditions.

We didn't buy each other anything this time around. Material wise anyways. Instead, we went out to eat together! And tomorrow we're having a big dinner at home. I prefer good food over junk any day.

Re: How many husbands and Wives cut back and didnt buy presents for each other.
Me and the wife didn't get anything for each other again this year. She lost her hob Nov 2011 so it's been slow going. Just having enough to pay for the bills and such.

The kids are taken care of by her sister and my parents. we got them a couple things from us in November, but I will have fun playing with their stuff too. The wife will have fun helping put lego's together for the next two weeks.

I'll fix us a good breakfast tomorrow followed by a good dinner! It's all good though, as long as the kids have a special day tomorrow that's all that matters. =)

Christmas means getting pissed off about your presents for various reasons, and then trying to murder each other. Knives and forks in the doors and etc. Sorry you missed it. Better luck next year.
