No, not related but pretty close call. It isn't that I do not like to receive gifts for certainly just about everyone likes them. To me, gift giving is all about spontaneity and the spirit in which a gift is given. I do absolutely LOVE Christmas but not so much the mandatory thing about giving and receiving gifts. If I have a few extra rocks in my pocket and I see something I think might fit as a gift, I buy it no matter the season or the event. I would much rather someone gave me a gift because it just seemed to fit at the time rather than, "It's Christmas (or my birthday) and I know he will expect something so..........". I suppose, in other words, if there is a gift to be received, I like to think it comes from the genuine thought of giving and not because it is the product of some sort of protocol.
