But the socks comment did remind me of the best Thank You I ever got for a present. The gift was to an adult and he said (in part and I'm paraphrasing) "It's like when you were a kid and were excited about what you got! Not like getting underwear and socks."

That still makes me smile.

(and he actually still comments about that gift too, which is really nice. I think I had more fun giving that gift than I do getting gifts now. It's a great feeling being able to make someone else happy.)

....and then I feel justified in buying my own damned gifts!

In my family if when asked what you wanted for Christmas went unanswered, or if you said nothing, that is exactly what you got.

On the other hand, my Ex's family would start compiling Christmas wish lists in August or September and it was a sure thing you'd get everything on your list. What fun was that?

I'd much rather give gifts than receive them. I enjoy buying and wrapping and the thought process that goes into just the right gift to get for people.

Instead of getting gifts for all of you, Im donating your gift in your name to the " Human Fund".

Happy Festivus!
