Christmas Truce?

Just got a text from my mom asking me not to get her or Dad anything for Christmas. They don't want me spending money on them, when they have everything they need. I feel the same way about receiving Christmas presents from my family. I too have all I need and I don't want my family spending money on me.

But of course we know what will happen if I don't get my parents anything. They'll buy me something really nice and I'll feel like a scrooge not getting them something.

So I decided to make Mom's request into a challenge. I told fine, I won't get them anything and they shouldn't get me anything either. I decided to step it up a little and requested that my parent, sister, brother in law, and myself should not buy anything for each other for Christmas and just but presents for my nieces.

I hope this family Christmas truce works out. I truly don't want anyone in my family buying me anything this year. I like the idea of spoiling my nieces and not get anything in return.

I also don't want to be the only adult who didn't get the other adults a Christmas present......

I guess we will see how this works out.
