Re: I got nothing for Christmas.
If no one is getting you a gift, what stops you from treating yourself to something?

I went to B&N the other day and they asked if I wanted my purchase gift wrapped and I said 'no, I bought it for me.' LOL
Wizard's Rule #1: "People are stupid. Given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. People will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."
Primordial Rule: "The rule unwritten. It is the secret of all life. It is the essence of life itself. You are a creator and master of your own reality. You ultimately make your own rules."

Re: I got nothing for Christmas.
To me (and I assume my family), Christmas, including the gifts, is more of a tradition than a religious thing. Call it what you like, but I don't see it as "buying into consumerist bullshit".

OP, I get that feeling. You don't really "need" any gifts, but getting nothing from anybody never feels good. I agree that you should talk with your mother about it. 1 (or 2) people just forgetting or not buying for whatever reason happens, but everybody? Seems like there may be some underlying details.

Re: I got nothing for Christmas.
Op,
You did get something this Christmas.

You got LIFE.

There is a 2 year old that lives in Atlanta, Ga. who just got the pieces of his skull glued back together. He has been in the hospital for over a month now fighting for his life. He was a very happy and wonderful little boy.

His only crime was that he was playing under the wrong tree when the tree branch fell and shattered his skull. Even the newscaster cried while reporting the story.

His name is ,Tripp Halstead.
Google him and get on FB and encourage his parents.
This will take the attention off of yourself and you will feel better.
You will also make little Tripp's parents feel good too!

Turn this day around Op.
The computer is not just for receiving.
Use it to give a little something back.

OP,

I know this probably doesn't mean much coming from someone you don't know but Merry Christmas. God Bless You for giving your all to those boys. God knows what you did. Don't forget that. Someday, they'll understand as well. Meanwhile, take the day off your worries and sorrows tomorrow. Do something you like. You've earned it!

Here's to You!!

Do you want a gift? I am willing to give you one, a stranger and fellow GLPer to another.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18535219


That is very nice of you, but I kinda wanted something from my family since i do so much for them throughout the year. And especially from my sons. One owns a fairly successful Apple Ipod repair store and the other is pulling in 6 figures as a sales manager for a car company. I figure since I struggled so hard to get them raised and to make them successes instead of drunks or lazy slackers they would at least appreciate it enough to get me something. If even a cheap card. I am unemployed and struggling bad right now and I spent $50 each on them. I am very hurt over this. I was their only parent. I gave up my 20's and 30's to be a full time dad. I gave the best years of my life in a celibate attempt to create strong, successful, well adjusted, decent men.

It is not like I wanted a new car or tv. A stick of gum would have been enough, and I can't chew gum because of my dentures.

You are not the only one.The worst thing beside no gift is a gift that shows you how much the person didn't care.I gave birth 5 days ago,my husband got me a $1.99 eyeshadow...If he wanted to tell me that I look like shit 5 days after birth,the least he can spend some $$$ on good cosmetics..O,well...not gonna cry over this.Felt like crap,but at the end,you and only you have yourself

Re: I got nothing for Christmas.
I stopped relying on other people to give me gifts way back. Mainly because they often got me something I didn't like or didn't want. So each year I always go and and get what I want for myself first. No resentment, no worry and I'm completely satisfied. Now I'm at an age where I really don't need or want anything. Go figure. That is other then a good massage. These aching muscles could do with some time in the sauna and rub down.

And just for the record - even though I gave my kids gifts they didn't get me anything either. It is a bit sad when they turn out like that but it's their problem not mine. I don't expect anything from them. You see. Christmas is about loving- not presents. Just hanging out with everyone is the best present ever.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

We don't all have shit families. You obviously do.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. 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.

Re: I got nothing for Christmas.
This thread makes me really sad!

It’s a tragedy how people base “love” on what is or what is not bought for them during the “retailer guilt days of adding to the end of the year bottom line”

I also understand how horrible giving and not receiving feels. But, I have learned over many years to give from the heart and expect nothing in return. It’s all about the joy of giving. If you give a gift, only to expect one in return…..you will most likely end up being disappointed and angry.

In reality, all the material stuff that people buy means nothing. You can’t take it with you and you wouldn’t want to take that crap even if you could.

For those of you who are hurting or suffering because of the way you have been treated, be grateful that you have your health and the money to buy stuff for those ungrateful people.

Just put them on your “naughty" list for next year and don't waste your time, funds and effort, ….unless you want to.

Merry Christmas!

Hello OP...you know I will also get no material gifts in the morning, I am a single mom with 2 young children:) I did however get gifts for my kids and I am so exited for them I cant even sleep. My greatest gift is to see their faces in the morning opening their presents...that for me is the greatest gift ever. I feel sad for you that you don't feel the same way. I am sending my blessings to you, I hope you get a Christmas miracle...hf
