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.
