Christmas? 

The thought has run through my mind because it's so commercialized. I'm thinking, let's not do anything, just save the money. 

Just curious, give me your thoughts

Its sad so many forget that and only think of the material part of the holiday.

No, I look forward to putting up the tree with my son and fiancé, and shopping for gifts for everyone on our list (its a short list).

I don't consider OUR Christmas to be commercialized at all.

Hell no. Commercialized or not it's for the kids. I have amazing Christmas memories that include family and present memories. I would never take that away from my children......in fact I will go above and beyond to make sure they do!

No way, I love Christmas!  You don't have to spend a lot if you don't want to... the memories that the kids have of our traditions and everything like that are more important than the material stuff, in my opinion.

No way!! I LOVE giving presents! I love the feeling of "good will towards men" that many carry during the season. I love the joy and laughter Christmas brings to so many.

I don't go along with all the BS.  I buy a limited amount of gifts and never go overboard on spending throughout the entire season.  I never feel pressured to spend more than I want to.
