    I hate christmas! This time of year makes me

    extremely angry. I wasn't bought up where this, or any other holiday, was a big deal or a major event. On top of that I view it as worshiping consumerism and over consumption more than a religious holiday. It seems to be more about buying all kinds of garbage no one wants or...

    Thank goodness it's over

    for another year. Such a horrid time of the year. All the false pleasantries to people who don't bother with each other the rest of the year. The ridiculous excesses - majority of costs to be felt in the coming year.
