The holidays are right around the corner (6 days!) and I’m in full “bah humbug” mode.
Yeah- I’m not a huge fan of Christmas. This should not come as a surprise to any of you. It’s because of the forced commercialism.
If Christmas were more about family time and food and football and fun, I could get behind it. But it’s the whole “figure out what people want but don’t really need and then spend lots of money on them” thing that bums me out.
Everyone I know has everything they need already, so they’re basically impossible to buy for. So unless they give me VERY specific ideas, I’m stumped.
And to add to the pressure, I am quite difficult to buy for as well. I don’t need anything. I don’t really want anything. And if people guess at what to get me– most likely they will fail. And either I have to pretend to like the gift or be honest and hurt their feelings.
Right now I’m just trying to get through the 25th with the hope that I manage to make everyone happy.
And dear god- please let mom NOT try to. It me clothes this year.
