Christmas is just around the corner. And the reality is, for very baby boomer rushing to finish their Christmas shopping, there’s a millennial kicking back in their room because they did all their shopping online weeks ago.
…and then there’s the uni students.
Times are always tough for those with part time jobs that pay less than minimum wage while living out of home and enjoying all the perks of student loans (hint: there are no perks). So when daily life calls for some cut-backs, why would Christmas be an exception?
Twenty-somethings are doing away with (some) traditions for the sake of their bank balance. Why gift material things when you can pool your resources together and give experiences? And Christmas cards? Ain’t nobody got time for dat! Enter the mass text/email. So trust the blessed millennials to come up with some frugal, brilliant and pretty darn funny excuses for a Christmas tree.
For ‘the Constructionist’
For ‘the Dehydrated’
For ‘the Takeaway Connoisseur’
For ‘the Minimalist’
For ‘the Energizer’
For ‘the Abstractionist’
For ‘the Reformist’
And my personal favourite…
Have a merry, millennial Christmas!!
