Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I stayed with a friend one xmas at her home in a wealthy suburb of Chicago, and the room where the (albeit extended) family met to exchange gifts was piled high. Such a huge array of stuff they gave each other. And it seemed to go on for hours as more of an endurance challenge than a true gift giving ceremony. I resolved then that adults didn't need to be shopping for each other, at least not for so much stuff.
