What If?

I’ve got a crazy insane idea. What if next year we cut out presents entirely, every single one of us. What if instead we all picked one day to get together and we all brought some food and drinks? What if we all just hung out for the night with no pressure and no expectations? What if it was for one year just about laughing a little and having a good time?

Obviously it’s tough for one person to do this, it has to be a group effort. I know it’s sad that little Jimmy won’t get his firetruck but get him something special outside of the holidays like maybe in June or September, I know, I’m pushing the insanity to a whole new level now.

What if we just started a brand new tradition? What if we made our own rules?

I need to be locked up, go get the straight jacket now. I’ve obviously lost it :crazy:

    I actually kinda like that idea myself. I’ve been wanting to take Katie to Boston for some time. Make it a vacation and a blogger meet up!

    Oh, nice one. You know 2/3 of our Economy is driven by people buying stuff. You’re trying to destroy America with this Commie crap!

    Oh, and Merry Christmas! :dance:

    What if we all just hung out for the night with no pressure and no expectations?

    So I’d get you drunk without expecting to score later? And you get me drunk without expecting me to give up my claim on Kevin?
    Yeah, you’ve lost it.
    The rest of it sounds good tho.

    I’ve been pushing this idea for years, and finally, just an hour ago in fact!, hubby finally got on board and said next year that’s what we’re going to do. I want a tradition that’s more about the spending quality time together than on stinking presents and making the perfect cheesecake, for crying out loud!

    Now we’ll just have to wait for next year to see if hubby will stick with the program. LOL!

    @kapgar – sounds good to me, we’ll show you around.
    @TJ – i don’t think people will stop buying stuff but i just like that it isn’t required…if you want you can get people stuff or not…
    @Gwen – there are always expectations when it comes to you :robin:
    @Giggle Pixie – if it were up to me that’s what it would be but it isn’t, it’s not even my holiday i’m just along for the ride.
