    Lilly and I no longer buy Christmas gifts for each other or relatives. We celebrate Christmas for Jesus Christ.

    Also, not everyone who is single and alone is lonely. And many of these individuals would appreciate it if other people would stop bothering them with their sympathy and good intentions.

    If there is one thing that really irks Lilly and me around the holiday season is when relatives send photos of their children to us. One of these days, we're going to send photos of our feline 'children' to them.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    Well, neither of us will be witnessing that fate. Especially not now 2019 Christmas time.

    More like; we should not worry too much what future generations will/won't do. Just because that is not in our hands (anymore). Every generation will write down their own fate. But nope; I don't plan to be my blood lines last person.

    Holy smokes, let's spread a little cheer!

    I also think the chess set would be a good idea, parents (I think...) tend to like gifts the most that their children can and will share with them.

    Having a hard time figuring out what to get some of the men in my life, I don't want to get them really generic gift cards or money because that just seems lazy for Christmas especially, like I'm telegraphing how much I don't know them or something. I also don't want to get them anything that will add to clutter or encourage electronic escapism, mostly I try for things that I know will be really useful or experiences I know they'll enjoy. The parents are pretty much covered, for the past couple years I've given them gift cards specifically for really fancy restaurants, just for the two of them, that they would never in a million years visit because of the money - it's played really well so far. I'd like to think I was pretty crafty this year with my husband's presents *fingers crossed*, he's insanely hard to shop for - I literally take notes all year long whenever he mentions that something would be nice to have that he doesn't end up buying.

    There is also 4 persons chess available, but I prefer idea of 3 persons version more. 4 players will simply make chess game ''full chaos''. Plus distances/positions between the players are the same/equal (3 persons chess).

    No, the family's bloodline will survive , due to much money here and there .

    But the number of children will be much less , than it had been between the 1930s and 1970s .

    I have no idea what to give people in my family, so I usually resort to alcohol. Most of them are fairly content with receiving a bottle of wine, and it saves us all from the risk of spending money on something that'll never come to good use. There's no kids in my extended family either, so there's not as much excitement and expectations regarding the gift wishes anymore. I kind of prefer it that way, seeing as they have the ability to buy what they want for themselves.

    ''Right''.

    Well, I'll leave that as a option for possible future use/needs ... if I can not beat him via 2 against 1 (secret coalition), then I will win him via 3 against 1.

    I buy some, but prefer to make stuff or to gift experiences. Taking a friend out to watch a movie or make them a nice dinner at my place.

    I'm brewing some red wine with berries from our farm that I will bottle and gift to some friends for Yule.

    For the daughters of my cousins, I will give some gift cards. It's hard to choose something teenage girls will like.
