Seriously, I am already over the commercialization of a religious holiday that I don't even celebrate AND IT IS ONLY OCTOBER!!!!
This year we will celebrate Yule with a big party for family and friends. Everyone will be informed that we will not be exchanging gifts. If they insist on buying the boys something, and they likely will, I am going to ask that they keep it very small and relatively practical. It's not like they won't have another opportunity 3 months after Christmas to shower them with cheap plastic crap!! (Especially since this is an even birthday year! Which means an insanely huge party for those of you that aren't in the loop.)
