Stop pretending like you actually have a girlfriend / boyfriend. You're not fooling anyone.

MLK Day, I don't recall ever having given or receiving a present on that president's day. It did use to be Lincoln's Birthday, you know.

I'M WITH YOU, ANONYMOUS! AND YES I'M YELLING BECAUSE I FUCKIN' HATE THE STUPID GIFT-GIVING "THING" TOO!

My family has been doing it for over 10 years and it's great - we concentrate on enjoying each others company instead of the stupid gift ritual.

I just quit celebrating x-mas entirely. I'm not Christian, I don't give a fuck about gifts, and I can barely tolerate the other holidays that I'm forced to spend with my extended family as it is.

I try and do this, although it's often difficult getting people to go along:

..and CharityNavigator helps pick good charities:

WHY DO YOU HATE PUPPIES SO MUCH?

We're all broke this year, so the choice sort of makes itself.

I'm the gift that keeps on giving :)

I like Jarhead's plan. Let's all just give each other our company, and something to contribute to the dinner. Of course, you really have to convince everyone in your family to go along all at the same time. Otherwise, you'll just be the hippie cousin who hates Christmas.

Also, FHTBT, I wanted to cheer when I read your comment. What's with non-christians (including me) celebrating Christmas in the first place? Is it the ham? I do like a good ham.

Because I was forced to participate myself spending $25 on someone who may or may not like my gift, I bought with practicality off my grocery list. Laundry soup, dish soap, a pack of new sponges, fabreze, Bounty two ply paper towels, a pack of condoms, and a 6 pack of PBR. I have a bet with my date regarding how many times mines gets traded. (I say two times.)

Torgo - Technically it's Solstice and Jesus was supposed to have been born in spring. The only way the Christians could get rid of pagan solstice was to appropriate it.

I just get belligerently merry and burn shit.

I like presents. Give them to me.
