    Christmas Sucks.

    All my life, Christmas just never seemed to have happy memories for me. My 9th and 10th Christmases saw me talking to one parent or the other while they were in the hospital. My 13th one saw me wishing my dad was still alive. . Last year, my wife and daughter were a thousand...

    Not the Biggest Fan...

    Over the years it has changed from a large family dinner to around three or four of us being able to make the effort for one day.  There are things that are skirted around and their absence seems to squeal louder than if they were being directly talked about rather than...

    Christmas Is Sad.

    I just really don't have anyone to spend it with, everyone is either busy or away. My family's not exactly a very happy/close family so it's sad.

    Always.

    I am always sad at Christmastime. It's because I always spend it alone. I have very severe social anxiety & agoraphobia & am too afraid to spend Christmas with family because of that. My mom, whom I live with, always spends it with other family members. So I am always alone on...

    An Uncomfortable Time For Me

    I don't enjoy Christmas-time anymore.   Too many bad memories and frustrations to deal with.  In fact, the whole two-week period between Christmas and New Year is just something I have to get through, not a time of fun. When I was little we used to have good family Christmas...

    Why do atheists celebrate Christmas? Because we like hanging out with our friends, getting presents, and eating food. It's not hard to figure out.
