I haven't done Christmas in years. I can't afford it. I just make a big dinner.

I ordered an art print and that's it so far. I'm going to get my dad a video game. Mom gets candy because she can't appreciate anything else. No idea about other gifts yet, probably a good bit of cash/gift cards.
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...


I can shop for 25 relatives on Christmas eve at a gas station!
I mean, Slim Jims, motor oil, and condoms - what else does anyone need?

We barely do Christmas gifts anymore. It would cost everyone a fortune to buy gifts for everyone in our large family.

That said, I already bought gift cards in October. Will stick them into small Christmas bags, and add a few small Christmassy items.
Is it October yet?


Ordered Ash a bunch of Scooby Doo stuff in the vague hope that he'll show interest in something that isn't a train.

Since not all members of my family will be together across a large part of the coming year, I would like for this to be an especially happy Christmas, and hope we are able to make it so. For everyone I love to have a joyful time together, enjoyed in the moment, remembered long after, would be the best gift for me I could think of.
