I am going to give it up completely next year myself. I don't want to take part in something that forces people to spend money or they are considered greedy. I also don't like all the religious backwash that is covered over old-world cult behavior. I haven't done decorations or anything like that in years. I just have to convince people to not buy me things... Which you would think would be easy. Ugh. I feel like it is nothing but a conformist day people are tricked into taking part in that is all about gluttony, greed, and materialism. I hate feeling like I have to get someone something because they are getting me something. My family is the reason I am sucked into the gift thing still. I like buying people gifts but I would rather buy them because I want to, not because the world is telling me I have to. Ya know? My mother is the worst. I told her a few years ago if she wants to get me anything, just take the money and donate it. That is what I want. Her response was "What is wrong with you!?" SHUT UP MOM! LEAVE ME ALONE YOU CONFORMIST BAG OF DEMON JIZZ! (I am joking obviously, I love my mother.) So yeah, I wanted to make a thread for this, if there is anyone else out there who doesn't celebrate it, what do you do instead?
