No budget for Christmas presents this year

November 18th, 2008 at 11:18 am

I'm not a fond believer of giving gifts in Christmas. That's why I don't put it in my priority list to save. I never celebrate Christmas or New Year with my parents because they are always working at this time of the year.

However, I only give birthday presents to those I truly care in my life.

Giving gifts at Christmas times is not celebrated in my family. I think it's great because we never associated Christmas with gifts, it's a holiday for us. Though, we don't celebrate it like everyone else in Canada because it's not our culture. Thank god I have my boyfriend's family side to celebrate with. xD Too bad I'm going to China this year... I won't get to celebrate my first Christmas with GuiGui. =O

    I don't buy into the hype much either. Over the past couple of years I've noticed things getting out of hand with stores, advertising etc (stores had christmas stuff up on the 1st november!!!)
    The past few years I've spent christmas with BF's mums side of the family which has been nice. There's always a ton of people, and the gift giving is only for the yonger children. Mainly it is an excuse to spend time with family. When I have children I hope that christmas doesn't take over our lives like it does to some families. I would love to be able to give my kids money to spend on the boxing day sales instead - they can get what they want, for much cheaper.
