Yes, I know I was brought up as a JW so my view is probably distorted. But why as an adult, would you want to receive gifts that you neither need nor want from people who can’t really afford to give them?
I love xmas from the point of view of spending a whole day eating, talking and a little drinking with loved ones. Catching up with people you may not have seen for a while.
But to feel obligated to give everyone a present just seems a little crazy. Children – yes, that’s fun. But adults? It’s got me stumped.
