A married couple had been out christmas shopping at the mall for most of the afternoon, suddenly,
the wife realized that her husband had "disappeared".

The somewhat irate spouse called her mate's cell phone and demanded:

"Where the hell are you?"

Husband: "Darling you remember that Jewellery shop where you saw the Diamond Necklace and
totally fell in love with it and I didn't have money that time and said Baby it'll be yours one day?"

Wife, with a smile blushing: "Yes I remember that, my Love."

Husband: "Well, I'm in the Pub next to that shop." yeah

I sympathise with the husband! Our family has had a moratorium on buying presents this year, except for baby Emily and Charlie the dog of course. And very liberating it is too.

In case you think we are a bunch of skinflints, tell me truthfully, how many of you can remember what you got last year and from whom? I'm sure I can't.

Ditto here. I did buy 1 present for my daughter but that's it.
 
Good one RD.

I love giving gifts at Christmas...or any time...especially to younger folks that have a lot of needs, (unlike us old farts who pretty much have everything we "need").

There are several stages of a man's life as regards Santa Claus.
 
First - you believe in Santa Claus
 
Second - you don't believe i Santa Claus
 
Third - you ARE Santa Claus
 
Fourth - you begin to look like Santa Claus
 
As my Daughter is 23, my Son is 21, My grandson is 2 and my Granddaughter is 7 months - I am firmly in the "You ARE Santa Claus" phase.  Both of those young families are just getting started and have houses to supply.  I gave my daughter a skillet for Christmas (among other things),,, the girl did not have a decent skillet with a good tight fitting lid shakehead. Big fun.
 
I got m'lady a nice pair of emerald earrings.  The best presents for girls come in small boxes.
 
She spilled the beans on my gift.  I let her know that I wanted a copy of that new TT3D movie, so she checked it out.  It's only available in Euro-DVD format.  So basically I gave her an excuse to go buy a new super-duper DVD player, and she may have gotten me the movie.  Or something else from Amazon.UK.  We'll see.
 
Honestly I am the most excited about Christmas that I've been since I was about 7 years old.  Both kids in town, both of my foster boys are around.  Grandson is 2 (forget that "terrible 2" crap, I love 2, it's a great year).  And I'm playing Cello at church on Christmas Eve,
 
God bless us every one!


The world's a funny place,
full of funny people,
doing funny things.

Been doing that for years. We give gifts to the young ones (nieces and nephews), but the adults don't expect anything (although we'll usually give small things, food items, that kind of stuff). Hell, even as an atheist I'm disgusted at the consumer frenzy that Christmas has become.

Christmas is SO overdone. There's some leaving for Little Rock going shopping here, I am that guy in the joke and
nice to see that there are more of us. See you in the bar/pub fellows.

We're striving for simple and basic. That for us is a nice family dinner that can last for hours,
coffee and something and cakes, desert. Playing simple games and have fun. Then in the morning, we all run around in
PJs and nibble on Christmas Dinner, which in this house is pork ribs, Norwegian lefse, lingonberry, spiked with something
we all like. Wife normally attacks a big puzzle game. But we restrict presents to some limited few.

I'm am SO with many comments here.

Thanks for reminding me that I need to pick up a rear brake piston kit in the morning. Will give me something to do over Christmas :)

Absolute!

And my son tried wrapping it up, but he didn't have the gift - thus I have it on already. I feel like a kid with a new toy!
Nice upgrade.

I guess most of you have to wait till tomorrow morning opening your presents?
