[SNIP] I cannot afford the excessively standard red and green decorations, and artwork is sneered upon. I always insert my Xmas cards between tightly fitted books on my bookshelves, we do not need, you know, that hanging metallic thrust from one end of the room to the window to support card.

It appears to be entertainment devices that stimulate them, not machines and not backs and plugs of electronic furniture. I love rooting around the back of my TV and computer. There's so many wires these days, yet I cannot rummage around and remove someone else's SD card with someone else's panic attack as to where the photos and vids went.
I have fond memories of being 15 and ironing the carefully-saved Christmas paper and ribbons flat to be used yet again, and sometimes finding last year's already-written tags in the box for re-use as well.
No decorations, no traditions, no gifts, no songs, no special dinner.
It's all this wifi, they don't know that it's still wires that make it all work.
