    Does your family keep up with holiday traditions?

    I am not sure if I had asked this here before or not. I was just thinking about it like I do every year and I noticed my family doesn't really do much anymore. Like all the traditions I grew up with have came and went. I guess this is because I am at the point of not having kids of my own and my grandparents having passed away.

    Does your family still do traditions like when you were younger or have things changed?

    My family does not. But I don't think nearly as many families do nowadays. I know I mentioned this before, but the amount of hand-holding that kids are subjected to over Halloween nowadays is ludicrous. Also more general traditions don't seem to happen anymore amongst my family. I know I'm digressing, but years ago my family stopped eating dinner together. It's either taking food away to eat in a different room or just using a smartphone while eating. That's pretty much the norm now.

    I loved all days leading up to Christmas as a kid. I just went out with my friends and our parents didn't give a fuck. That would be seen as bad parenting nowadays but we were just having fun. I remember that every Christmas (for a few years anyway) there was a man who was known around the neighbourhood to offer free sweets to all the kids in his motorised lit-up sleigh. He was a really nice Santa and it clearly made him happy. Now, in this day and age people would immediately call him a paedophile or something like that, so you'd never see a Santa like him nowadays.

    This is why I'm glad I spent my childhood enjoying trick-or-treating, playing outside with friends at Christmas, and most importantly enjoying the best of the golden age of gaming.

    To be quite honest I can't recall my family being together for very many holidays. My brothers/sisters are much older, so I was left alone with Mom from age 9 til I finished high school. Occasionally my brothers/sisters and I would meet at mom's place for dinner, but that stopped altogether probably about 6 or 7 years ago. It sucks I guess, but never really had much to compare it to.

    I agree with Mantis though; it was the golden age of gaming back then. I can't stand console gaming anymore; the hour-long updates, the DLC I have to PAY for cause $60 of my hard-earned cash doesn't buy a full game anymore, the 'oh, your season pass doesn't cover this expansion, you needed to have bought the 'annual pass'...'
