I've boycotted family christmas for years. In the past My wife and I have gone to her parents' house in the morning and my mom's house for dinner. That wasn't enough. My mom wanted us at church on christmas eve and my mother-in law wanted us for boxing day dinner. Thats 3 days of commitment to one holiday. We were spending $1200 each year on gifts, mostly for adults who can buy their own ****. Each year it seemed like people spent more and more on gifts for us and I felt I needed to match their spending even if I had way more people to buy for than they did. Most of the gifts we received were things we didn't need and would never use. The gifts we bought for others were uninspired. Finally one year there was a three way argument between my wife, my mom and my mother-in -law over where we were having Christmas dinner. I said "screw you all, I quit!" and that was my last Christmas.

Holy days are holy because they are related<br />
to Divine Education from God.<br />
It is really good if we know the origin, the meaning,<br />
and we solemnly celebrate each Holy Day for<br />
thankfulness to God and for more spiritual development,<br />
especially with joyful participation of thoughtful friends.<br />
Otherwise, we are wasting time and money<br />
for wordly pleasures that obscure the sacredness<br />
of God's bestowals.<br />
Nowadays, we really need spiritual atmosphere<br />
to restore the tranquility of our minds, our true life.<br />
Yes, human beings are truly spiritual.
