Hey

I'm writing a magazine article that has to be handed in by October 1st. Seeing as how it'll be the Christmas edition I thought I'd be festive and I'm doing reasons to dislike the holidays.

Anyway, I need you all to tell me some of the things you don't like about the holidays, and I'm going to pick 5 or 10 things, I've not decided yet.

To get the ball rolling the most promising ones I've got so far are:
Christmas Songs
New Year's Day
The standard of TV at the holiday time of year.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, even if it's only something that mildly annoys you about the holidays, it'll help me out.

Cheers

So I, with a broomstick(Just in case) walk right where they can see me and I said:

The look on their face was priceless, and they ran, and I mean ran like a bat out of hell.

Crappy christmas films they always show

you could also mention the fact that christmas is no longer really regarded as a christian holiday and more of a commercial thing.

EDIT:

The fact that people are putting up their trees already.

Christmas TV is the BEST TV ever. All those terrible films that are always on, no matter what, like Home Alone and Con Air

Ah, Jolly old Satan.

Despite the innumerable cute Christmas movies about the true meaning of Christmas, everyone still acts like it's a consumerism holiday, not the birth of Jesus Christ. Shame...

Drunken Santas! I actually quite like them, but they seem to make children cry...
Some people wait a lifetime, some simply accept...

Christmas: Spending money you don't have on things you don't need for people you don't like.

consumerism, and sometimes the family gets quite annoying. also eggnog is not very good unless you "spice it up". youd might as well just drink straight up rum or whatever then..... stupid holiday imho.

although it has been a while since ive been home, so i think itll be more bearable next time i drop by. they cant be worse than my roommate, right?

I actually quite like Christmas, though the past few years I've been sort of depressed around them. I don't know why, but it's not because of Christmas.
#31
^

I had an xmas like that and it was when I was quite happy. Well I enjoyed christmas itself loads but in the week or so off I had before it I felt quite crap at times indeed. Still don't know why, I think it was part of a winding down process after my first year at college perhaps. That was a good 2 years ago almost though, at least.

Christmas is just capitalism.

They want you spend your money that's all, it isnt a "holy" celebration anymore.

I love everything about Christmas. Winter is my favorite season and I get to go snowboarding, no school, I love corny Christmas movies, I love Christmas songs, and I just love the general feel of the time. There's really nothing bad about Christmas for me.

Yeah, I didn't think about that. I always try to donate some money or time to people not fortunate enough to have Christmas.

Ah don't!!

Where I work some irritating guy asked us why we don't have any christmas stuff in yet, and I could tell my boss was thinking of battering him, lol I managed to fob him off and he left before pain.
