I Don't Like Christmas

Yes, I'm a Scrooge! 136 People

    ​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...

    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...

    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.

    I hate the manipulative ways christmas is used.

    It is used to guilt trip people into buying stuff they can't afford. And it's rubbed in everyone's face, incessantly. I really don't know how to respond honestly to people saying merry xmas, do I tell them to shove it, with their beliefs? I don't go around shoving my belief is...

    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).
