Do you like Christmas? All the family stuff and shopping, music and tv, I know you like the presents. Is it all a scam to keep us shopping? Just curious about how many scrooges in UG.

I loved it as a kid but now I don't care for it as much.

I love Christmas. I really don't understand why people say they hate it. Christmas (like any other time of the year) is only as stressful as you let it become. If you don't like the crazy Christmas shopping, don't participate in it.
Death to Ovation haters!

I like getting stuff and eating big fancy food and taking that 30 minute christmas dump and **** like that, yeah.

I just hate how much busier the world gets in December as a result of it.

It's awesome!

After all the hurried shopping, it's a great way to relax at the end of the year with friends and family.

Its a little annoying when people say they hate Christmas, just to make themselves different, so they seem "cool".

I hate the frantic and forced consumerism, the pressure to buy the right thing, the not having the money to buy the right thing and feeling bad about it, the ignorance regarding Christmas's true history (the Puritans banned the thing, you know)...... I become a really cynical Marxist around Thanksgiving. Earlier, now, really.

I agree with the consumerism part.

I like Christmas, and to not get pissed off at all the shopping, I finished all my shopping during the last week of November! ^_^
#24
I should hate it, since I've never received a Christmas present my whole life (my parents are Muslims, though I'm an atheist). But I actually nothing it.

I would like to add, one thing I hate about Christmas is Jewish people, and people of all other religions who are in NO way connected to Christmas as a religious celebration celebrate it because fvckin' EVERYONE is. It's like they can pick and choose which bloody holidays they want to take, so they can celebrate every day that is a holiday for any other religion.
#28
How can anybody hate Christmas?

EDIT:

Well, I guess it does make sense. I personally hate the "Christ" part of Christmas, but I like the whole family gathering thing, having a big dinner, and exchanging gifts.

You know Christmas is actually the pagan winter solstice right?

Christmas doesn't feel the same for me as it did when I was a kid. I don't like it because of the presents (not that I don't love free stuff ) but because it seems to put people (myself included) in a good mood. It's just got a certain feel to it. Snow falling, a log fireplace, lights strung all over houses. People can't help but get happy around Christmas time which gets them off my back for a month.
#37
Of course I liked it when I was a selfish little kid, but now it bothers me. For the past few years I've asked everybody to not give me any gifts, but they do it anyway.

I can't stand the adverts, and the shopping crowds can get annoying, but on the day there are so few people around it kind of makes up for it. You don't have to be Christian to appreciate Christmas, in fact I'm pretty sure they stole the day of the Pagans.

There were a lot of Pagan festivals around Christmas that celebrated the harvest and such,so they Christians decided to celebrate Christmas arround that time
