Im 21 now so the festive season has lost most of its appeal, it is so great when you are young but when you get older you realise that xmas has just lost most of its meaning and its all about the presents.
I don't know about losing it's appeal. In fact the other day my wife and I were outside, and it was the first snow of the year. She was laughing at me and said I look like a 5 year old. When you stop to think about how much you are spending on gifts, perhaps there may be a bad taste left in your mouth, but I don't look at that. I am 25 years old and I still play in the snow, I build snowmen, I go sledding (not snowboarding, but sledding with the $5 plastic sleds and innertubes from wal-mart), a snowball fight is always possible, I LOVE the snow and the spirit that comes this time of the year. Sorry for that rant, and to get back on topic, I want a bloodhound.

I'm not addicted... I can quit when ever I want...Wait...I'll just LOOK at the fish.

55 gal cycling. Will be FOWLR.

Christmas doesn't "excite" me has much as it used to. Nevertheless, its still fun being with family and all.

I'd get a Subaru 2006 STi and 5000g of saltwater, freshwater, and turtle habitat. Plus another yellow lab to accompany the one I have now.

Oh ya, I'd have enough fresh organic salad greens and carrots to last me the rest of my life. And I'd have chickens to produce eggs and maybe a Tiger to patrol the garden and chickens.
10g - 3 Feeders, 1 Bolivian Ram, 1 Bluegill?
40 Breeder - Eastern Painted
50g Rubbermaid - Mississippi Map
I work at an LFS..

I'm 21 as well... and I enjoy Christmas but it doesn't excite me like it used to. But, I know when I have kids, it will end up being just as exciting, if not more so, than when I was little myself. I can't wait to be Santa =oP

When you have little kids Christmas is sooo fun and exciting!

As for gifts being expensive the adults in our family usually do pollyanna. Everyone picks a name out of a hat and you are only responsible for buying a gift for the name you drew. It works out great and you are able to buy one person something cool without trying to buy tons of cheaper gifts for everyone. Our pollyanna always has a price limit. This year it's $50.00 but many years it was $10-20 depending on how everyone is doing financially. It's fun cause we are able to include all our brothers and sisters significant others as well as wives and husbands.

As for my dream gift.......I'd love to go away with my husband for a week to a deserted island where I could sleep late without kids driving me monkeynuts and dogs bounding into my bed at sun rise.

Forget gifts. If I could have anything for christmas it would be to have all my debt and bills paid. Oh, and snow on christmas day.
