Quoting lizglo:

The worse part is the total amount I know I'll spend on getting everyone gifts! Also, my husband's picky and has it all already, so he's difficult to shop for!

God, yes.  We spend so much, but we really enjoy picking out and giving gifts.  My hubby is the HARDEST person to shop for!

Since we have moved to a new state, our holidays have just been with our little family and friends. I must say, it has been way less stressful :)

I don't dread anything about the holidays, I love the holidays. We buy what we can afford, so we don't break the budget, and our kids know better then to throw fits over toys, so thats never been a problem. We enjoy ourselves, spend time as a family, do fun things, I don't worry about parties being perfect or cometing with others. It's a fun, stressfree time with my family.

I am the worst gift giver on the face of the planet.  Hate buying gifts for people.  Hate the idea that I "have" to buy gifts for people.  Why can't people just spend what they would spend on buying me a gift, get something for them and we can just call it even.  I hate the holidays.  Hate everything about it.

Fruitcake. 

I love everything else about the holidays. It's the one time of year that no matter how busy it gets I feel good =)
