I Dislike The Holidays

Most holidays depress me 80 People

    I can honestly say that I hate the holidays.

    I honestly hate that people don't actually remember what the holidays actually mean. they just think that all holidays are meant for giving and receiving gifts. Yet that is not the whole meaning of holidays. Companies advertise so much leading up the the holidays that they use...

    The holidays, for me,

    isn't the same since my parents passed. I miss them so much. I feel like family isn't family anymore. Everybody pretty much does their own thing now.

    Christmas... What?

    Always hated holidays. We never had Christmas at home (no money) and there was no extended family around. When you're ten years old, other kids think you're a freak if they know that's your annual Christmas experience.

    It's All About Merchandise

    Especially Christmas is all about buying expensive gifts and making the most beautiful Christmas tree.. and then I wonder.. Where does Christ fit in between all of that?

    Bah Humbug!

    I don't even recall looking forward to holidays as a child.  I remember one Easter eve evening, my brother and I were huddled in our bedroom overhearing our parents fighting.  We were quite young at the time, and it was disturbing listening to them argue and cry. ...

    I Hate The Hassle.

    The holidays, themselves, I love. I love that time of year and the feeling it brings. But, the actual day of a holiday is chaotic and unnerving. I am married and I come from a split family. So, I spend holidays running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Somebody...

    Holidays Break My Heart

    Many holidays make me miserable, especially Mother's Day and Valentine's Day.

    Sad

     I just finished watching the holiday episode of "Grey's Anatomy." It just reminded me that I'm going to be alone for Christmas and New Years. Again. Am I ever going to have someone to celebrate the holidays with me? Someone to get a kiss from when the clock...

    My parents have been separated

    for a few years now and it is just so stupid to have awkward dinners with people I don't know and can't trust. Every holiday I'm either by myself or awkwardly sitting with my stepdad's family.
