me and my friends were talking and the subject came up. we are all 14/15 years old.
but basically it used to be that we cared about how long till christmas/birthday was. but now they just seem like any other day of the week.

last christmas i said i didnt want anything and my parents insisted that they get me something. so i said fine get me an xbox 360 but i dont want anything else.
i dont know why but they just seem pointless now-a-days.
remember kids, you can't spell bass without ass

Yeah. I havn't really gotten any presents for years. Last present I got was my electric shaver, 'twas my first and only shaver I've gotten (that was my main christmas present) and I'm 20 now.

The other week it was my birthday and one of my friends from london said "are you excited about tommorow" and I was thinking "how did you know I'm having a party tommorow" so I said "er why?" and she said "It's your birthday."

i have the same thing, ever since i left school, its lost its appeal, cause i dont get any time off, and it loses its appeal the older you get.

although i like the "feel" of christmas, and going out for a nice meal on my birthday

Teenagers...

I don't count down to those days but they still feel different than any other day.

you just stop caring as you get older really
Sig space available, give me some praise

Nope, I still love them. Although mainly because Christmas means an amazing lunch/two weeks of holidays and birthdays mean a party.

EDIT: I also generally get money, and since my birthday is in January, for a few months I'm suddenly rich.

EDIT2: Pfft, none of you are any fun.

EDIT3: We should all have a giant Christmas party to make you guys feel better.

I'm 19. I don't remember getting much last Christmas. I think all I got was $20. My birthday this year, didn't get anything. Nothing. This christmas, I'm not asking for anything. Nor am I giving much either.

Keep in mind I don't have any fancy stuff a lot of people have: car, ipod, expensive guitars/gear, xbox360/ps3/wii.
All I got is this neat pc i bought/built. All it needs is a graphics card and I'm set.
#13
I don't like celebrating my bday much but I still look forward to it and I absolutely love christmas, I know it's a cheesy kinda holiday but it just makes ya feel good ... unless you're a miserable b*****d all year round.
#15
Yeah son, im 20. I haven't gotten shit in like 5 years. When I turned 19, I bought MYSELF a PS3 lol. Its all good though. It feels good when u support urself.
I'm an "08er". You Mad?

i suppose the christmas feel is good but it gets spoilt for me by all the people who go out boasting about what they are getting. even if i dont want anything i go out and buy presents for my family.

You're getting older. It happens to all of us.

Christmas is still nice. I mean, you get to see family and all that, party with friends, etc. Plus it's for everyone. Birthdays on the other hand are gai.

You can't call me immature just for being able to enjoy myself. I pity you guys.

I didn't say you were immature. Way to go victimizing yourself.

You did, just inadvertantly. And I'm not making myself into the victim, I just don't see that there's a real relation between maturity and enjoying holidays. I would say it simply relates to your personal perspective on the world.

Well, I'm significantly older, and all I want for my birthday is peace and quiet.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I remember when I was a kid (like until 13) I couldn't wait for Christmas to come. It seemed to take forever....now it just kinda creeps up on me and I'm totally unprepared. Birthdays are kinda boring nowadays.

Birthdays are kinda fun but I hate meeting new people on those days, because you always have to explain it's your birthday and I feel like an attention wh0re when I say shit like that. Christmas is weird for me, I'm not a Christian so I'm not really celebrating anything, but it is nice to see family and friends on Christmas. The presents are nice, although if I had it my way I wouldn't give or receive any presents.
#31
I don't care about my birthday. I don't want or need gifts.

Christmas is just depressing because I got no family in the US other than my mom.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Only excited for milestones I can get a job this year(I'm finally 15), 18 can buy ciggys, 21 can get booze(but won't) and 25 can get pot(but will do it a bit earlier as well)

Oh and I love christmas though last year we went to Utah for some skiing with family and it was fun, but I love the feel of my family getting together and having a huge breakfast and opening gifts.

as you get older, birthdays sort of become less and less important, but i love christmas because of that holiday-ness in the air. christmas somehow brings with it like, an aura. presents used to be more important, but now they're getting less and less important and the 2 weeks off with your friends is growing more and more important
