I’m a Grinch and proud of it! Why I won’t spend one red cent this Christmas

Terrence Horan/MarketWatch

I don’t want anything this Christmas. Not one thing. And I have never felt more festive.

If you think I’m being hysterical, it’s because it’s historical. I can’t remember one present I received for Christmas as a child and, if I did, I would bet my monthly salary that the toys broke soon after or I simply stopped playing with it. How do I know this? Because when it comes to shopping and gifts, not much has changed. I lose interest in most consumer products after buying them (my iPhone being one obvious exception.) I’m not alone: Nearly 9% of American families don’t participate in holiday giving.
