KoolHndLuke Posted December 17, 2017 Share Posted December 17, 2017 I used to love the holidays and especially Christmas. It was a time when family and friends would get together and talk about life, love, hardships, and basically just catch-up with those they hadn't seen all year possibly. Plenty of food and drinks for everyone, maybe some games to play(my family played card games) listening to some holiday music to try and keep everyone in the spirit of things. Of course the best part of Christmas for everyone is opening their gifts. That magical feeling of being a kid again, wondering just what in the hell this relative or that friend has gotten for you! Then you open it and find that they outdid you in the gifting- you received something really nice and thoughtful while the gift you gave them was just some generic something you picked up in a rush. Talk about embarrassing! Part of you just wants to crawl under a rock and disappear! But, you being an adult, put on brave smile and act as if it was an even exchange- knowing you might never get a nice, thoughtful gift from that person again. Of course things could have been the other way around and you would be very disappointed in what you received compared to the awesome gift you gave them. Maybe "joke gifts" can cover some of the damage here. Or maybe someone got the same gift as you for someone? Ahh, the gift exchange........ So how do you see the whole gift giving thing? What kinds of gifts do you like to receive or give? What are some rules you follow when finding that perfect gift for someone or just a general gift for "whoever"? How much time do you spend looking? How much money would you spend on one gift? So, talking about gifts, folks, what do you think about it all? And Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all! Link to comment
