What is the most effay way to spend Christmas?
-One day off from minimum wage job
-cold minimalist bedroom
-drinking dark red warm mulled win, after a continental style lunch of cheeses and smoked fish
-reading Woolf in bed
You're delusional if you think it is anything other than:
>nice amount of vacation time from a job in finance
>classical pretty New England farm house with beautiful views
>roaring fires and delicious food
>a bunch of attractive friends and family with a nice dog
If you think anything other than a Town and Country Christmas is fashionable then you are doing it wrong.
>had brunch with my gram, uncle, and cousin
>everyone else is off doing their own thing because of drama crap
>cousin constantly begging me to have a nerf war, never sees any of his other cousins
>wind up having a huge nerf war through the entire house with him and his uncle
>haven't laughed like that in years
>he's 9, keeps talking to me about fallout and how cool the winterized power armor is from operation anchorage
>gives me a dinky little one-shot nerf pistol and 2 darts to keep and says "have fun annoying your cat"
>mum later told me that he idolizes me
Don't like having people look up to me, but damned if that kid didn't make me take a step back and remember what a couple of important things meant.
My parents make about that too and I got a car, Viktor and Rolf perfume, a chromebook, and some clothes for Christmas. Why don't your parents love you anon? Do you call them enough? Do you spend time with them when you visit or just sneak off to sniff coke with your friends?
>You can romanticize your shit lifestyle all you want but it won't make you happy
This all over, and I agree with >>10753225 - you're the modern version of the kids on VampireFreaks who would try to suffer in misery for attention.
Thought > value. Don't be selfish. If you're older, the assumption is that you save up for and buy big gifts on your own accord anyway.
I agree with this minus the finance job (no idea why you guys still idolize that).
For me, the ideal would be snow, a huge fucking house, plenty of relatives running around, particularly wild-ass fucking kids who are hyped to hell about presents. I don't like getting anything, but like giving, so I think it'd be pretty great to be able to vicariously enjoy a bunch of kids going hogwild over Santa on Christmas day. Ideally in basically a house that looked like Ralph Lauren's wet dream: a snowy American mansion with tons of fires, rugs, wood floors, woods, leather wing-backed chairs, etc.
Dude that sounds rad, congrats. I forgot how fun little kids can be when they're all pumped for presents and shit.
My Christmas was a depressing fucking trainwreck so I'm on /fa/ again I guess
It's okay, I've got a few albums to listen to; I just hope I do see a train go by, need to be alone

Same. My dad makes 200k and gave me a flashlight for Christmas and a $50 gift card to nordstroms. Oh and also some fleece blanket he got for free from his company. Meanwhile he spends a few thousand on his gold digger girlfriend
