Whoa . . . there should be a warning on that for people with epilepsy; I can only imagine how that would trigger my brother . . . I'm just dizzy now . . .

That's funny.

So then, I am either way too cheap or living well beyond my means.

What ever happened to the days when kids went nuts over getting an orange in their stocking? Or a shiny new penny?

Those days went away when advertising became big.

Re: That's funny.

Were those days in your lifetime? Because they weren't in mine.

The Old Days

Nope. But, I read about them in the mountain loads of new books that I got every year for Christmas.

I remember when I read the Little House on the Prairie series I felt so bad for Laura when they described Christmas. I was like, "Who wants an orange for Chrismas? Lame."

hmmm... :shakes head: it is probably because the gifts themselves have gone up in value and kids are no longer happy with the second hand gifts... everyone wants to one-up last year with decor and parties and gifts... nothing is about sharing happiness and love.

it is ridiculous.

There's a variety of course, I think.

I know personally I spend a ton at Christmas, but I rarely buy something unless there's some sort of sentimental thing.. (unless it's ultra cute. I buy the kidsin my extended family something that I know is important to them, or was to me as a kid.. and then cute stuff. lol. )
