After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." -Alexander Tytler

    Sod off mate. Me and my gf both only work part time, yet we spread the cost of xmas over the last 6 months of the year, which is espcially important when I have a 8 month old. We managed to spend in excess of £400 on her, as well as around £200 on each other, not to mention to copious amounts of food/chocolate we bought for the up coming days a head, right through to new year.

    Remember... not all gifts have to cost £100. Doesn't cost much to make a phone call to a loved one and break the ice.

    And I got nothing, I wanted nothing. I don't really find christmas to be that important, don't find many of those things people celebrate to be that important, not even my own birthday.
    And? Your sob story makes my heart bleed! If you have money problems, I suggest changing your lifestyle. But, your finances are not my concern anyway.


    And yet since you don't give a toss about xmas, go find another thread, and gloat in your own self pity there along with other scrooges.

    And for an implied adult you seem just as naive. Not all gifts need to have monetary value attached.

    In my family we stop getting gifts when we pass 18, we all give to the people below that age ofc.
    But what i did get was a realy nice evening with awsome food and people i love, see thats pretty nice imo.

    Anyway, people like to show affection by gifting presents, money is so important to the modern world, somtimes it's nice to give somthing back
    sinterklaas is the original santa claus which coca cola stole and turned into what it is now..

    Merry Christmas ^^

    This has been the best christmas I've had in years. I have my dear close friend from germany here at my mothers house, so its just us 3. Without my drunk father, there hasn't been a single ounce of discontent or resentment, with the old man gone its just a nice, warm environment.
    My mum got me soaks, pants, and... a galaxy smart phone ^^ I'm so happy, I've not been able to afford a smart phone, so it was a great surprise ^^
    Big thanks to Davillage for awesome signature
