Resident no longer wants to ‘go all out’ with Christmas gifts, decorations

To the Editor:

I tried to go all out this Christmas. I didn’t feel like it, but I did it. I looked around and I bought a bunch of gifts that I will be paying for over the upcoming months.

Most of the people I know have done the same. Christmas is nothing to them. They don’t go to church and their kids know nothing about the reason of Christmas. Hundreds of dollars are spent to put packages under a Christmas tree of a family that has no idea about the meaning. I grew up so differently.

I took down my Christmas tree and all my decorations. I’m putting it in a bag and I’m going to donate it. This was my last Christmas of decorating. I will not be buying or accepting gifts next year. Only self-made gifts or plants, no store bought nonsense.

I hope my bag filled with the Christmas tree and decorations can go to a good family. If anybody knows anyone that needs it, please comment.
