Damn christmas is around the corner
Christmas is just around the corner. Shit I totally don't have the cash flow for it. Its a great time and all but its such a pain on the wallet. especially when you don't have any money to begin with!. Anyone else feel the same way. Plus I hate shopping. Too many freakin people in the mall... awww what a shitty time! haha.

Ive lost the christmas feeling i had as a kid. I only celebrate it now cause my brothers kids likes it and seeing them tear the presents open makes me smile. But exept that i hate all holidays and birthdays.

What is the big deal???..You buy all your gifts. Santa brings them to me. Maybe you haven't been a good boy the past few years

I agree with you totally on the money expenditure issue. But Xmas is a season whereas everyone gets lovey dovey and intimate. And I do not like that because after that day, everyone gets back to become emotionless....
Anyway, I still buy presents for my friends as they meant a lot to me.

Just remember a gift of love doesn't cost anything....
try framing a nice picture or something that has sentimental value. Sometimes those work as the best gifts of all and cost much less!
I've done this too where you can scan some of your most memorable pictures and make a calendar for the following year.
Just a few thoughts...
It sure beats the mall crowds thats for sure!

Good ideas Babyweight!
I bought a few things for my son and a few extra things that I've found on sale so when I get surprised with a "Oh man I forgot so and so" moment I have reserves.

I skipped out on christmas last year.
This year I'm making charitable contributions for family members. Most people hate that as a gift, but hey, I don't like christmas so it's a trade off.
You can bring on the Thanksgiving though. I loves me some turkey and dressing

I loved christmas as a kid and still love it now. But now I have to spend way too much money on my wife, mom and dad, brother and so on. Im shopping now for my wife, trying to get it over with and have her buy whatever for my family. Im usally the last minute guy trying to find presents on Christmas Eve so this year im shopping a litte bit earlier.
