Mother's Day and Father's Day... non-gift giving holidays in my home. HOWEVER, I do like to get something for my folks.

At least I don't have to worry about getting any crappy hand-painted fish-ties from you :-)

Anyway, I'm with you. I prefer my gift-giving to be spontaneous.

On the other hand, I can understand how some people might enjoy having an "excuse" to demonstrate their affections.

I don't agree, but I understand.

Yeah, we don't do the "Days" or Birthdays. We observe our anniversary quietly and usually partake in the gift-giving of christmas, but the rest of the "Days" are just days to us. However, I do get gifts for the moms on mother's day, they feel all left out otherwise, and Yesterday I bought my daddy lunch. Of course, I buy my daddy lunch every sunday, so that doesn't count either :)
