    This is another case of people getting older and being given gifts less often. But at least you have a job and are able to buy presents for whoever you want, pretty much. Yay for counting blessings, I guess. (:

    And besides, one of the reasons to have a job is to reduce the economic stress level of your parents, right? This is going to sound weird, but to ask them to buy a game console for you when you could just go buy one yourself would probably be insulting to them.

    Christmas Eve: No tree, no presents, no bad sweaters, no spending time with family, no religious observances. This is how I enjoy spending my holidays.

    No bad sweaters? Haha. :P

    Do you just not celebrate Christmas, or do you not really care about the usual stuff that happens during any one particular holiday?

    I personally don't see anything wrong with buying and eating pizza on Christmas. (:

    I actually enjoy Xmas more now that I'm older. These days I usually just get money, which suits me fine, cos then I get to choose my own presents. The best thing though is not having to get up early to go to mass. Our family still does the tree decorating thing though, watch carols together and enjoy a nice meal so the Christmas feeling is still there for me.

    I had a particularly lazy morning today. I got to sleep in and recieved a box of chocolates which I've been munching on for breakfast! You know, the really nice kind... Gonna have a big lunch soon with the family. The table is already set up along with crackers. I think I saw a bag of lollies there too. Though we've only just put on the roast. And of course theres Xmas cards everywhere. It's gonna get really noisy here soon.

    My mother allowed me to open one gift, and I received a book titled "Divergent" by Veronica Roth. Seems interesting, 500 pages, so it's a little short compared to what I usually read, which is just what I need right now.

    Five hundred pages...? Wow. o:

    But then again, five hundred pages is only long for me if I'm really not interested in the book. But if it's interesting, then I'd say that's a pretty good gift. (:

    Merry Christmas to all of you here! Well, it's already Christmas morning here but I have to admit that this year's Christmas is rather simple really but admittedly, really nice. It's a great time really, spending it with the family and all. Did an all nighter last night for Christmas eve though.

    Anyways, I'll be opening my presents later and be attending a Christmas party in the evening with other family and friends. Now I don't know exactly what to do for the next days of Christmas though. hehe. Once again, Merry Christmas to you!

    Won't brag, but I usually read books with well over 1000 pages. Not because they have that many pages, more because I'd rather stay commited to one book than to keep switching from book to book. Like I've told you, I'm an unusual person.

    My book is great so far, but pages 22 to 55 are missing. My mother got it from Chapters, an official bookstore, and it's missing pages. T_T

    Are the pages torn out, or does the book look like it's in perfectly fine condition? o:

    Perfectly fine, looks brand new. Just going to read them online. Still an annoyance, but at least there's a solution.

    So, for example, you're on page 31, and you flip the page over as if you're going to page 32, but you're on page 66 instead?

    That's probably intentional for some reason, then. Are you sure it's not a preview book in physical book form?

    Everybody's getting novels for Christmas, encouraging the current generation to read. o:

    At this rate, everybody's going to get at least one book for Christmas.

    I wouldn't want too many books for Christmas. I'd just feel unmotivated to finish the entire pile of books. o:

    Ah, okay. That makes sense, then. Although if you guys don't celebrate Christmas, it's not really considered a holiday for you in the first place.
