Those of you who have been following me for a while will have seen this coming, I suspect.

I don't do Christmas. I detest it. Holly goes to her dad's so she can do it without Scrooge McMummy ruining it for her, and Mat and I generally stay in bed and avoid the whole boiling, only emerging for the Doctor Who Christmas Special ([personal profile] magister likes Christmas, but he is going to his mum's). I don't buy Christmas cards or presents (even if I did, I couldn't afford to this year), and I don't expect to get any either.

However, experience tells me that even with all this insistence, someone will insist on sending me stuff anyway, so I shall say this:
If you want to give me something for my birthday, which is the 27th of December, the most useful gift would be money; I am going to have to have at least a month off work when Gideon gets operated on, and I am attempting to save up, which is hard given that I have more going out than coming in at the moment. If you insist on a material gift, my amazon wishlist is here, and I don't mind if you get things on it from places other than amazon.
I'll just re-iterate, though: I will be happiest with no gifts at all, because I will feel guilty about not being able to reciprocate, and my house is tiny and overflowing as it is.

Don't feel bad about being a scrooge. I rather detest the commercial hooplah that's built up around it, especially as it's become a more secular holiday having very little to do with either Christ or the older Yule-tide traditions.

I find it especially hilarious to see Japanese interpretations of it, who have collectively turned the whole mess into some kind of weird couples holiday like Valentines Day's bastard child.

America's gotten especially bad, the shops started putting that shit out right before Halloween, ugh. Makes me CRAZY.

I will join you and say Bah! Humbug!

it's often the little, important details i forget.

i know you love dogleys best, too, but JUST to make them jealous, and to make up for the card slip, i pass on.... KITTENCUTnESS. it MAY make your brain melt.


i don't even like kittens, and i don't think my brains will ever recover.
..oh, wait, you ate them. so.... what was running out of my ears when i watched this?

Personally, I think Christmas is fab! Not in any Christian sense, because I don't believe in god or any of his little wizards.

However, I do believe in snow, dark nights, ghost stories by firelight, twinkly lights, cheesy lounge music, excessive consumption of food and alcohol, and the getting and giving of prezzies.

However, out of respect for your stance on this matter, I will give you bugger all! :P

Same here for all the same reasons. I would really love a fireplace.

However, out of respect for your stance on this matter, I will give you bugger all! :P
