I Don't Like Christmas

Yes, I'm a Scrooge! 143 People

    Turkeys

    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...

    I Don't Like Christmas.

    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...

    AM I A SCROOGE? Christmas

    for me has become, in the passed few years a major downer. It's not that I think that Christmas is stupid, I just can't seem to enjoy it anymore. When I see all around me activities in the name of Christmas that are so ridiculous, I can't understand how anyone could actually...

    First off it is great

    if you enjoy it as most do. A lot of people claim it is their favorite holiday. However it is far from flawless in my experience. To me it has become over commercialized. When ever you see an add during Christmas time what do you think? To me it says you should by this product...

    What Has Become Of Christmas?

    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?

    It is more of a commercial holiday than a religious (Christian) holiday. This is sad. :((

    I dislike Christmas because it's supposed to be

    a "Magical" time, but it just reminds me of the life I don't have. Nothing gets me down more than birthdays or christmas... Hopefully next year I will finally be myself.

    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).

    Christmas is a lie, just another way to consume. And a reminder at how broken my home is. Always spending it with other people's families. I wish it were Halloween again.

    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 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.
