    I Hate The Entire Christmas Season...

    I haven't liked Christmas

    for years. It's so commercialized and phoney. I listen to my mp3 player whenever I go to a store rather than hear the nauseous Christmas music that spews out of the speakers and change stations or turn down the volume when I listen to the radio. I watch movies and you-tube stuff...

    Why Bother?

    I hate it too, there is no real love amongst my family. Only dysfunction and one upmanship and how little anyone has to do for another person and be able to get away with it. The thing about it is it is very  obvious. In alot of families they at least look like they like...

    So much. And Thanksgiving.

    And pretty much any national holiday that forces me to socialize. I dread the presents as I do not reciprocate. I hate that. I look like a douche. I don't want to hear the music, or go shopping, or put up with the throngs of people who do. This year I just want to opt out...

    Another Christmas without my son.

    Why did he have to die? Why do I have to watch other families have such a great time with their kids when mine is dead? **** it. I'm bringing my cat to my family's house for Christmas this year, she's my baby. God I'm so sick of this. I want it to end.

    The Holiday On The Calender I Don't Crave For

    I think Christmas brings out the bad in people, becuase this is the day, or maybe even the entire month that people get selfish and arrogant and expect something in return when that's really not what the holiday is originally about. I cannot believe the amount of stupidity that...

    The only holiday I hate as much as Valentines Day. Christmas is a soul sucking vampire, making me feel like I'll never be cheerful again. I dread this day. The expectations, the greed, the loneliness, the fake smiling faces. The realization that you are alone and poor. I don't...

    I think hate may be a strong word. But, I dislike the greed of the holiday from the perspective of the stores. They seem to feed on the guilt of those who "must" buy. Then in the end of it all a ton of people end of just returning it anyway.

    Christmas music is like being forced to listen

    to top 40 music, except it's old. It's like being tuned into the same annoying station every year for a month and a half, and everywhere you go, it's on. Shut. Up.
