I kinda do the same thing to my own children. I describe future events as being SUPERFANTASTIC IN EVERY IMAGINABLE WAY POSSIBLE! When it fails to live up to their expectations, I look upon their little disappointed visages and explain to them it is our job to make them such - not the event itself.

Its true it doesn't work all the time, but it does get them out of the house on occasion (I'm not above lying to them, apparently), and hopefully teaches them we are responsible for our own enjoyment of forced activities. Time will tell, I suppose!

But I am absolutely with you on the gift-giving :)
