I have a 9 foot artificial you'd swear was real. I have 10ish days off for the break and I have a 5 year old. So of course there's presents. I just buy my own and the ones under the tree are my sons and wifes. Church? ahem, no. To me its no longer an observance of the birth of Christ as much as its a time to stop what you're doing and get together as a family. Granted thanksgiving used to be the primary for this, but in recent years its no longer as a big a deal because everyone's camped out in tents in front of stores now on thanksgiving to buy something at a price they could have gotten if they bought the fucking shit in July.

FWIW, I sincerely think this country needs to permanently adopt a 4 day work week and have the month of August off.
