Bah humbug!

My DH is anti christmas. I hate this! He asked me to inform my family NOT to buy him anything. He is willing to accept a gift from me but we are broke! I am waiting to hear something about my disability and he has a trade that our town doesn't have much need for so he has been out of work for a minute. What do I do?

  • My mom's husband is like this and has been for the last 20 years. She just does her thing and we include him in it as much as we can. You can always say you don't want something or for people not to get you something but it's a gift and it makes people feel good to give. Is there a reason he doesn't like Christmas? If not just do what you want.
