    Dreading the Upcoming Months...

    I always enjoy this time of year due to the picturesque landscape associated with Fall, sleeping on flannel sheets, taking the dog on walks, and enjoying the smells and sounds of the holidays.  That is until it gets close to Christmas and Thanksgiving. I have the family...

    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...

    I Don't Dread Them.

    I don't dread them, a part of me, the childlike, ignorant, innocent part of me deep in there still looks forward to them, and expects it to be happy. It's not, they depress me. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Easter even, I secretly expect it to be better than last year, and...

    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.

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
