My War On Christmas

Next year, instead of dealing with the whole Christmas gift racket, I’m doing this:

<Tell anyone that might be considering me as a gift recipient to instead write down what they would have bought for me

<I’ll do the same for them

<After sifting through the lists, both sides can decide if they would like any of the potential gifts, and go buy them if they want

<I don’t want stuff and I don’t like to shop, so I will end up buying nothing

<I will save a lot of time and money

<Others will save time and money too, unless they want to buy themselves a bunch of stuff that I wrote down

      I’ll start thinking about what you might want to buy for yourself next year.

    Are you doing this for your Birthday too? If so, you can put me down as wanting you to have one of those new Virtual Reality headsets. You know you want one. Happy upcoming Birthday! (whenever that is)

      See, the plan works. I’ll know you wanted me to have an expensive gift, you don’t have to buy it, I don’t have to buy it, and we all come out ahead.
