    ​The plan for Christmas Eve was to have an

    epic family dinner party. My mom and I planned out the menu and we were going to cook all day, which I was really looking forward to. But instead, late on the 23rd my moms husband was rushed inan ambulance to the hospital because he had a seizure. He was discharged later that...

    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...

    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 Just Don't.

    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...

    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.

    I don't handle pressure very well, I tend to get what appear to be anxiety attacks which render me basically useless at work. I also don't feel comfortable in crowds. So you can guess that I'm not happy about having to go to work in the store on the last 2 shopping days before...

    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...

    It's So... Ew.

    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?

    Not Quite Scrooge

    No I am not quite Scrooge but Christmas lost its luster for me when I discovered it was the most overly commercialized holiday and that Santa Claus wasn't real. I like Thanksgiving better because the stress isn't on giving gifts but rather thanks. That makes all the difference...

    I do like the presents, the family reunion, the day off and the Christmas bonus, but about the rest...well. That Santa character is kind of spooky, if you think about it. And about the true meaning of Christmas, that it marks the day of birth of Jesus, well it's debatable. It...

    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...

    About 8 years ago my mother passed away at the beginning of December, that upcoming Christmas wasn't like it used to be, it was depressing and not so jolly. After the loss of my mother, the whole family split up for some reason. My brother and sister left the house and my aunts...

    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.
