Although it's true that Christmas isn't all about receiving gifts, didn't your boyfriend get you anything? At all? That's a bit unfair. Tell me, at least, that he gave you a gift in private at some point...

Actually the corporatization of Christmas has made it all about gifts and obsessive spending. But that won't stop me from my macaroni drawings!

That is a good point, and very true. In fact, I feel her pain. I gave my parents pretty cool gifts and they gave nothing back. But aah well. Imo, I think he should have given a little something to her at the celebrations, though. Just to include her. No matter the cost or the size, it would have been cool to include her.

Hah, about like my brother-in-law and his GF. Got him a nice expensive gift set, and got her a few little gifts (like makeup and stuffed toys) that I knew she would enjoy. Hubby and I got nada from them, but EVERYONE else got something..though no one else bought them a thing. Irony.

I agree. YDI for trying to make it about you and about you not receiving a gift. This is probably a family tradition that's been going on forever, and you think you should just jump in and everyone should get you something because you're his girlfriend? Seriously are you that into yourself? Yes, FYL for having to sit there through it all, but that's tradition there and you can either not go or deal with it. When I go to my girlfriend's house, I have to sit there through tons of gifts w

its an fml because she could have spent christmas with her own family, but instead got stuck in what sounds like an unexpected and rigid christmas tradition for three hours. i get the impression that if she had known beforehand that she'd be sitting in silence for three hours on christmas day she would have arranged to have it elsewhere.

also, how is she being ungrateful? she didn't GET anything to be grateful for, unless you count being told to sit still and shut up for three hours in honour of this creepy tradition

I agree with #37. FYL. She wasn't being selfish when she decided to spend her holiday time with her boyfriend's extended family instead of her own. Not only was that thoughtful, but it also had to be incredibly awkward and stressful. I don't know about everybody elses', but if my family knows we're having a family friend or somebody's boyfriend or girlfriend at our holiday party, we always get them something small to open. Its just common courtesy and good manners, just like a guest bringing a b

How can the OP be ungrateful if she doesnt have anything to be grateful for? Didnt your boyfriend get you anything? Unless you didnt get anything for him, in which case, the OP is a selfish bitch.

It's quite likely she did get him something. Besides, if she was a selfish bitch she wouldn't have sat through her boyfriend's family traditions.

Since your boyfriend knew about how the celebrations work out and he most likely could figure out that noone else would get you anything, he ought to made sure that you at least got one little thing for that occasion. He's a douchebag and I would dump him big time. FYL
