A couple of rants. These are not directed or inspired by anyone here. I'm on a lot of different forums and some of what folks are saying is starting to get me. Better I rant quickly here then hurt someone's feelings there
If someone buys you a gift certificate for hundreds of dollars quityerbitchin' please. You ain't getting sympathy from me cause you really were relying on cash and got the lousy gift card. Yanno if it is that onerous of a gift send it on here and I'll see if I can manage...
And if your family is all fighting, and someone refuses to give you and your kids gifts it isn't going to ruin your kids Christmas unless your attitude is as sucky as I think it is. And then it is your attitude about it all that is going to ruin christmas.
They are called gifts for a reason. If they were obligations they'd be called OBLIGATIONS and not gifts. Be grateful for the company of family and loved ones. That is what Christmas is about not about the gifts. Oh yeah they are nice, but they are the icing on the cake, not the reason for the season Maybe teach your kids about the joy of giving and spending time with family rather than inventorying their "haul". This is called teaching them values.
Thanks I feel better now. And again this wasn't about anyone here so please don't take offense.
