We do celebrations for the kids but we don't really care that much. ETA: (about our own celebrations, that is. It's really fun to have a kid's bday party or big xmas..) We still get one another gifts but we're pretty low-key with everything. A quiet evening with dinner and a small gift, in my opinion, is more enjoyable than a big celebration.
We tend to get things for BOTH of us on days like Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, VD (Valentine's Day).
Did your husband freak out and threaten to make you sleep on the couch? Was he all distant and passive aggressive? Or was he just like, "meh.. whatever?"
