What a shitty thing to say, right? Sad to say it's true. It's supposed to be a joyful (whatever that means) time, a time to spend with the people who are important to you, etc., etc., blah blah blah. We all know the spiel. But the reality is that I'm an adult. I already spend time with the people who are important to me. Christmas has become nothing but an obligation. An obligation to go places, an obligation to buy presents, an obligation to spend time with people with whom I specifically do not want to spend time — that's why I don't see them the rest of the year. The crass commercialism doesn't particularly bother me; it's no more crass than any other time of the year, frankly. It's that they call it a holiday, but really it's just another kind of work day: shit you have to do because that's just how it is. And like a workday, I find myself trying to run out the clock.

 

Anyone have kids? I imagine it's a little different if you have kids. If nothing else that aspect of it is probably fun. Also it gives you an excuse to buy toys that you'd really like for yourself. I'm sure Nas' daughter would have one HELL of a Barbie collection.

 

Well, one hell of a Ken collection, anyway.

 

Merry whatever.

You don't have to be an asshole about everything, you could just say, eh, Christmas isn't my favorite time of year. 

 

Come on, brosky. Screaming kids, burning down Christmas trees, just a dick thing to do. 

 

 

I don't mind Christmas, it's fun, good time to get presents. Meet families from a long time ago. 

 

It's a dedicated time of year to do it, and we all synchronize, makes things easy, makes getting time off easy and so on.

Hear hear.

I'm tempted to be the positive voice, but the spiel is already well known. And even if I pointed out some more objective things, you already know about them.

eh. I'd say more, but I just make a mess of a post, and be a negative nancy too.

Much love though.
Merry Christmas Jorost.

My particular dislike of Christmas, as selfish as it may sound at first, is because I never really got anything. I like to help people out, giving my time or service if they need help with something. Maybe money if I can spare, I never really expect anything in return because I like doing it. Makes me feel useful and gives me something good to say about myself as well. However you'd at least think on the day that people usually give gifts and stuff to the people they care about, I'd think I wouldn't mind something too. Never get it though. Just animosity from my family and the cold shoulder from most of my "in person" friends, even though when in need, they come to me, and I'm not the kind of person who cuts folks off who haven't done me any true wrong, they just don't tend to associate with me often. Family is well...fuck my family. 

 

Aside from that though I don't really hate the holiday, it's a cool thing, I'm just kinda feeling left out of it I suppose. Then again, there are those who have nothing near to a Christmas, and are in deathly shape, so I do keep my thoughts on them in order to not let myself feel too bad about my own lack of Christmas, when others lack in just about everything.

I used to be the same way then I had kids. That sure puts things on a different perspective when you are celebrating for them as well.

What a sad bunch of folks. Sorry to say. None of you even alluded to the real reason for the season. It's not about presents or even family. You all know it, I don't have to spell it out. If that's not your thing, ok, don't celebrate it.

Merry Christmas anyway.

I have kids, and I don't care for Christmas myself.  If it wasn't for the children in my home, Christmas would just be another paid day off spent drinking and doing whatever i want, except shopping.  I refuse to purchase anything on ANY holiday.  Doesn't seem right that people have to work.

I clicked "like" on a Manoka post (the first one, to be precise). What is the world coming to? xD

 

I still enjoy Christmas. My family traditions involve just loafing at home all day in our pajamas and eating what amounts to a Thanksgiving Feast 2.0 for dinner. No one but the immediate family (six people) involved and no one leaves the house. We play around with whatever we got and sometimes pull out some board and/or card games if we got any and play them as a family.

um. I don't want to turn something off-handedly casual into something more heavy.

Maybe when it's summer, and we're not all in the thick of the season, we can have a clinical discussion on "the reason for the season".

For now, Merry Christmas everyone.

Merry Christmas Jorost.

Cheers,
