Yeah, I kind of hate Saturnalia, really. I never know what to get anyone, I don't have much money, and I have to spend at the very least a day with my boring family and do nothing. We don't play board games, we don't watch movies, and we really don't do anything interesting. I hold no grudge against my step mother, brother, and his wife; in fact, I really do consider them family...it's just that the late union of two sets of people didn't, in this case, produce any shared interests. My brother watches sports and never reads anything; not even magazines. His wife does crafts and stuff. My step mother has been addicted to her job since I first met her, and thus all of her interests are work related(short of farmville). My dad and I like sci-fi stuff, enjoy games occasionally, and both read good books and watch similar movies....but we're the only two people who enjoy any of that in my family...and thus we have to sit there and be boring with everyone else.
It is agonizing. I always just want to tell them how much our family sucks. I suppose I could suggest that we actually do something worthwhile instead of sitting silently and talking about nothing while watching some boring Saturnalia parade/sports event, but then it would just be forced and nobody would enjoy themselves.
