"Hard-covered books break up friendships. You loan a hard covered book to a friend and when he doesn't return it you get mad at him. It makes you mean and petty. But twenty-five cent books are different." - John Steinbeck

It's much the same with Christmas presents, don't you think? How do you know an appropriate amount to spend on someone? What if you find the perfect gift for someone you think is a close friend and they buy you a pair of socks? Then, on top of the stress of the holiday season in general, you have to cope with the fact that your friends do not know you at all. At all, I say.

Common sense would dictate that we abolish the faux-liday season entirely. Except the songs. Those can stay as reminders of an age when people were actually religious.
