    Holiday Hate

    I used to love the holidays. The smell of turkey on Thanksgiving, waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve, watching colorful fireworks on the fourth of July, and basically almost every holiday my family celebrated I enjoyed. However, when I was around eleven years old, I...

    MY WAY

    I really hate the commercial craziness of the holidays. I find it ridiculous how people ruin the occasion by turning it into a shopping match forgetting the true meaning of the festivities. I hate how rude people are at the stores, the supermarket, the roads, because they are...

    Want To Skip It All This Year

    I don't want to be pessimistic towards the holiday season this year, but I'd prefer to just go on as usual and just not participate in everything that goes along with it. I absolutely love gift giving and seeing friends and family, but that just rarely happens anymore. It keeps...

    I Dread the Holidays, But I'm Not Really Sure Why.

    I must admit, I have wonderful memories of holidays as a child.  I come from a fairly small, but close knit family.  My parents are still alive and still very much in love - they have been married for 52 years.  My 2 sisters, my brother and I are all in good...

    I Can't Face It This Year

    I had to make the dreaded weekly trip to WalMart yesterday,...I despise that place, yet I shop there because in my town there really is no where else. Anyway, I was shocked that it is already decked out in Christmas trees, poinsettias and Christmas songs blaring from the speakers...

    It´s That Time Of The Year Again........

    Well, actually this year it has started even earlier. I saw Christmas merchandise in September and by mid-October Christmas was in full bloom in all the stores and shopping centers. People feel compelled to buy, buy, buy, even if they get trampled at the door on Black Friday...

    I hate being all alone on the holidays because it is depressing. One or two here and there would be okay but because of situations in my family I am usually all alone eating deli turkey sandwiches on most holidays.

    Alone This Year

    I used to love the holidays. I don't know what happened. As the years progressed, I grew less and less enthusiastic about this time of year. Please, don't get me wrong. I love this time of year for other reasons and holidays in general aren't so bad. It's a nice time to celebrate...

    I Hate 'em

    Most holidays are about families and loving, right? I hate that since it seems like each holiday, you are expecting to spend a lot of money, or buy gifts. I come from a distant family and I really have no money. When Christmas comes around, my mother yells at me for not having a...
