No Kris Kringle?

In an apparent bow to the economy, yesterday my aunt declared there would be no gift exchange this year. (Zoinks!)

She went on to say, "If you want to give someone a present, that's fine," so I think she means no Kris Kringle/Secret Santa this year, which is never secret among family anyway. ("I got your Uncle George. What do you think he'd like?")

I read a rather perceptive quote the other day: "There are three stages in a man's life: You believe in Santa Claus. You don't believe in Santa Clause You are Santa Claus."

And I can say from experience that the last phase is the most fun.
