If you have 15 friends that like to give you gifts, this is the year to break that tradition by not returning the favor. I may be a scrooge, but I am a scrooge that has been able to stay out of the psych ward for seven years now by being impolite here and there to simplify my life. Skip the eight secret santa stuff. In fact, cut your gift list in half. Start with those persons you live with. Add a few to that, and you’re good. Next year you won’t feel as bad because no one will give you gifts!
