Do you realize people that you are raising your children not with the gift of giving or the love of receiving but with the notion that people have an obligation to give them something just because it is Christmas or Valentine’s Day or whatever other random holiday.
You are training them to believe that a holiday is necessary to show ones love and affection. You have put a price on love and that is ridiculous. If you want to celebrate the holidays, they should be about family and love not how many sales you can get to, to get gifts for family. The best gifts are just because.
Think about it. People take out loans or go broke during the holiday season just to express something that is supposed to be timeless, priceless and from the heart. The gift of love.
