I Don't Like Christmas

Yes, I'm a Scrooge! 110 People

    Aww Grinchepooh

    I love the Grinch but I hate the commercial holiday that most people call christmas. All I know is that ever since I was around the age of 7 or 8 I have always felt guilty about this holiday and that it is all wrong. Growing up I found that I am in the vast minority on this one...

    I can't stand Christmas, but I feel I'd like to...

    By comparison, my upbringing and childhood life were good. I lived without fear of hunger, poverty, violence, natural disaster, war and therefore, I feel a bit of a fraud for complaining about things. However, I used the caveat "by comparison". How could I know what another's...

    What Has Become Of Christmas?

    Christmas Brings Me Down.

    Sorry to those who feel happy during this time of the year.. I don't know why I feel down during Christmas. I feel like I also bring my sadness everywhere. Sometimes I want to hide so no one will see me sad and I won't feel bad when I infect others.

    Bah Humbug!

    I hate the music, I hate the snow, I hate the fictitious jolly fat man. Reindeer really are disgusting animals. Elves are scary. The ONLY thing I like about Christmas time is the old movie "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer." And it's because I like Bumbles (the Yeti).

    I Used To Like Christmas

    ... But I just don't now. My perceptions of Christmas have been changed by time and experience. It's difficult being "jolly" like everyone else, when you know things aren't going so great in your life.

    Christmas is for children. I don't want them, never did, and just simply don't like them. My husband have been married now for twelve years living child-free and happy. Without kids in the picture, we pretty much do whatever we want when we want. If we want something for...

    It all just seems so fake,

    and I consider myself a Christian. The way we celebrate it is all just a mixture of other old holidays, mostly pagan, that don't have anything to do with each other. If you are celebrating Christmas because of Jesus' birth, what does a tree in your living room have to do with...

    I just don't... I dislike buying things for people and I don't even really like receiving things from others either.  I think it's a great way for people to come together and show that they care, but shouldn't they be doing that all the time anyways?
