Well that didn't take long considering it's only October but people are determined to ruin my Christmas. My all time favorite holiday when I was a child has been demoted to a nuisance by my friends. Why, you may ask? Money. Time. Using your brain to actually think about a person other than yourself. It's just such hard work. And above all it has to be fair.
That's not Christmas. I don't want anything in return. I just want you to be happy and I want to present you with a token of my gratitude. I want to thank you for being my friend. I want you to feel loved because I do love you. That is why I give you a present.
So this is what I want to say but I'm not really going to say it:
I understand that your dad doesn't want to do any presents. I won't get him anything then. But you will not take away my holiday. I will get you something, I will use my brain to think of something thoughtful. I will spend however much I want. I will do something completely unselfish because I love you and there is nothing you can do to stop me.
