I don't know that I can point to any one thing but I do know that it was quite different celebrating Christmas with my ex wife's family back before we divorced. In my family, we would usually not receive a lot of presents but the few we did get were all things we really wanted. In her family, you would receive a ton of presents but they were mostly little everyday items. I remember getting pencils and other things. I would rather have one nice present than a lot of little everyday stuff. Maybe I am weird.
