I keep telling family and friends that I just would like to spend time with them or celebrate w a delicious meal. They don't get it. They are caught in the rut of materialistic living. It's a status quo. I've been in the Wolf Viking Hello Darkness My Old Friend Shirt boat. As you get older the less you want gifts. It's just a waste of money exchanging gifts at holiday time. When you spend the money that on yourself that you would on other people then you know what you want. It also lets them off the hook.
