no more christmas

so... i told my nieces and nephews (all nine of them) that i will no longer celebrate christmas. which in turn meant no presents for them from me. the look of surprise and dismay that quickly swept their darling little faces were just too precious for words. it almost broke my heart... but, then quickly i came back to my senses... and continued on with my prepared speech...

i, your uncle of 15 years for one of you, less than 1 for one of you, and for the rest, somewhere in between, have decided that there is just too much materialism associated with christmas. i mean each one of you get at least ten christmas presents, and that is just too much. there are people starving in india ... or somewhere, and here we are... acting like christmas is some type of special license to spend money on useless things... i just can not participate in this kind of frivolous reckless behavior any longer, for i am too ashamed... that is why i am going away for this christmas... in hopes of helping out those in need, in search of those less fortunate than you... and me... that is why i have purchased a single plane ticket to this little place where many unfortunate children live, a place called cancun... so, you all have a great christmas and i will see you some time next year...

i love kids!!! cuz they will believe anything (santa, easter bunny... and me!!! ha)
