Are we the only ones...

that don't really celebrate any of holidays? We never do anything for Valentines Day, we are lucky if we go out to eat for birthdays and anniversaries, and if we get anything for Christmas it is one big thing for both of us. I like it this way. I know once Mathieu gets a little bit earlier older we will do stuff for him of course but other than that, I like the way things are.

 Anyone else?

ETA: I meant we don't get each other anything. We do celebrate holidays like Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving.

Re: Are we the only ones...

  • We are the exact same and we like it that way, too. We are happy just spending time together and I have enough junk in my house. Plus, if I want something, I usually just go get it, no need for gifts. I imagine we won't do a ton for little holidays for DD, but I suppose a little something would be fun.

    Exactly! I am glad we aren't the only ones. I tried explaining this to my sister and she thought I was crazy.

  • We don't really do anything for birthdays or anniversaries.  Like you, we are lucky if we go out to eat.  I'm certain we didn't do anything last year because all of that stuff hit around the time LO was born. 

    Christmas is one small gift.  DH got me a movie, I got him a gift card to a fast food place (sometimes he eats out at lunch at work).  

    We haven't gone out for V-day in a long while, but I will get DH something small like a card.  That's all.
