Not really feeling it this year. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I couldn't get myself amped for that until the morning of.
My sister and I are in our 30s now, and my dad in his 50s. It really should just be a nice day to get together for a meal, exchange a gift or two and watch some football. But my sister lives for Christmas, and keeps dragging us into a big gift-giving affair each year.
When you're a kid, Christmas is fucking awesome because it's all about you and the magic of getting all that rad shit you waited all year for. When you're an adult, you get what you want when you want it (with some saving or planning ahead, if it's a bigger purchase). Giving and receiving gifts as an adult is fucking awkward because you basically tell the other adults what you'd like, then act surprised when you get it a couple weeks later.
I just hate pageantry.
Well, I guess fuck me and the new bugatti veyron I got for you this year. That shit's going RIGHT back to the store!
