    Anymore my parents just straight up ask me what I want, which I find weird. I only get one or two things a year, but I don't expect a massive pile of things. I don't need anything and my parents are already being generous enough to help pay my rent so..

    Adult Christmas just isn't very magical. But since I live far away the holidays are more about seeing my family than anything else.

    Ohhh.. in that case, I would want to get it, too. o:

    But yeah, there's nothing with collecting old games, you know. (:

    That's why you either get a small Christmas tree that you can put up on the counter, or you keep your cat away from the tree as much as you can. :P

    Yeah, I'm finding Christmas less and less exciting nod that I'm getting older... and I'm still only twelve!

    I wish I could visit my relatives at Christmas, though. Half of my relatives live in Korea, and the other half (though I'm not very close to them anyway) live in America, so... yeah... ;~;

    I have a weird urge to tell you guys that rumors would say that Santa would use to tie the 'naughty' kids up in a bag and throw them in a river to let them drown... Well, at least that is done with.
    I grow up in a family where we celebrate Christmas, but nobody really cares. It really isn't magical, and the older I get, the less stuff I want to get anyways. Christmas is nice to hang out with family, but to be honest, you can hang out with family any day of the year (usually).

    As one gets older and older, one feels more and more compelled to give rather than to receive.
    Just look at the difference between children's behavior and adults' behavior during Christmas. Many children receive gifts and don't give gifts, whereas many adults receive significantly less gifts but give more gifts. o:

    As for your second point, you should visit America sometime. (:

    In terms of how the world is before and after the confiscation of the present, it's not bad at all.

    Morally, though, I'd argue that that's pretty bad. (Unless you've been a bad child all year.)

    I feel horrible that I didn't have enough money to buy anything for people I know. Heck, they even gave me funds, and I was still too cheap to buy so much as a T-Shirt that says something like "Rockin' Mom" or something cheesy like that.

    Oh, well. When you live in California, there's not much you can do. There's always next year, the season of Birthdays.

    Creating sentience is simple. Accepting it, however, is harder than it looks.

    Wow. My family's a lot more organised then some of these peeps are. Still, the only flaw with Christmas is the Christmas radio station. (Smooth Xmas, it's like Sodomy, for your ears.) (I'm joking by the way, you can't tell because It's written up, not said, so yeah...)

    Yeah... when things are extremely expensive, there's really no point in fretting over what you can't buy, unfortunately. ):

    i think that you're incredibly spoiled and possibly didn't deserve the present in the first place if your parents had to resort to making a threat such as that.

    That too, but you can't really control whether or not anybody in your family is allergic to or hates dogs. :/

    I got a laptop. Well, that was unexpected.

    I feel really guilty now for getting something so expensive ;~;

    Did you get it because you said you wanted one, or did you get it as a surprise gift?

    Either way, do you feel guilty to your parents, or do you feel guilty to the people that didn't get as expensive a gift as you did? o:

However, my sister and I still like to do the festive tradition of gifting, so we're the only in the household to give and receive them.
    Yup. It's times like these where you think of Christmas and you sob at how fast you're growing up. ):

    Masuda probably won't make them this year, but I think you can count on them being made for future Christmases? :P

    Merry Christmas to you too!

    Perhaps. I kinda meant it as more of demand thing though. Like I wish I could actually make out a massive list like some of the kids here and get everything on it. Nowadays my mom would tell me I have a job and could probably buy it myself. I can't complain though, I actually tell her not to buy me anything and save money(in a nice way). Just hanging out for the holidays is good enough. I wouldn't wan't to burden her buy asking for a game console or something, especially since I can go out and buy it myself anytime most likely.

    I'm pretty much the same. I use to couldn't sleep on Christmas Eve. But now I'm like...ok turn the damn neon lights off already. It's kinda like my Birthday. I stopped caring after I turned 18. The 21st one was cool I guess but I probably won't celebrate anymore for the rest of my life.

    I did buy my mom a few nice shirts and some jewelry. I feels pretty good giving someone something you've bought with your hard earned money.
