In the U.S., we celebrate the Holiday Season in a way that truly fits our American identity. Every family seems to have their own unique brand of traditions; some rooted in religion, others more about bringing everyone together at least once a year.
The one tradition that almost everyone does seem to share, is spending a crap-ton of cash on gifts for our family and friends. If not a literal "crap-ton," at least more than we can usually afford.
Of course, the spreads underneath our Christmas trees and in our stockings are not all created equal.
Though this can sometimes be attributed to bad judgement, or just bad taste, most often the strongest correlation between the quality and magnitude of your holiday haul is found in the checking account balance of that special someone (or someones) in your life.
So if you're bummed about the weird, ill-fitting sweater your Great Aunt seems to give you every year, Dwight Howard, Skylar Diggins and other star athletes have used the wonder of social media to remind you that it is that lame.
