It’s true. I’m a motherlovin’ Scrooge. Ok, I’m not truly a Scrooge but at this age, my friends and I have come to an agreement that we don’t need to buy gifts for one another. Our attitude is “if we want something, we will buy it ourselves”. Instead, we prefer to get together and eat. This arrangement has also applied to my relationships. My fiancé and I aren’t buying gifts for one another. We’re just taking my parents out for lunch then cooking an indulgent meal for dinner. That’s truly what I want most; to spend time with my loved ones. Although my fiancé did bring up a good point: if we do have children then we will have to deal with Christmas. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
Whatever you celebrate, celebrate it well! Happy holidays! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa!
