its not that im a scrooge, its just it fucks me off how everyone seems to be so greedy and selfish and narrow minded.

What about all the people who are alone this xmas? Who are all freezing on the streets and dont have anyone to spend it with? Whilst you've got all these people inside there nice warm homes eating food that these people could only dream about.

1) Dont like christmas because Im forced by parents to go to church and to confession, and every one is getting something cool like psp slim or x box as present and I dont (cose my family is poor).
2) Dont like valentines day because I dont have "my other half" (this point I added as a bonus)

And what about the rest of the year? They are hungry and poor and homeless and freezing the entire year through (okay, freezing is seasonal), and all these other people are in their nice warm (or air-conditioned) homes and eating food. Why hate only Christmas because of that? Why not hate the entire year?

I hate Christmas. Not because of what it's supposed to represent (presents or J-Man, take your pick), but because it's forced down my throat whether I like it or not.

The Supermarket pipes nothing but christmas music into its little section of hell. They don't even sell toys, just food, gift cards and booze. If I worked there I might just end up killing someone after the first 24 days of Jingle Bells.

Everything is Christmas. Jews? Fuck you. Muslims? Fuck you. Athiests? Fuck you too. Merry Christmas or there's something wrong with you.

Christmas to me is a celebration of exclusion.

it's not just that, it's just everyone is so centred around spending money around this time of year they dont even stop to think about anything else apart from wasting shitloads of money for one stupid day, What if they took the time to think about trying to help out someone whos alone? Xmas is meant to be about goodwill and love but i dont see much off it all i see is pushy parents, screaming brats who moan that they didnt get whatever bullshit fad it is this year that the corporate companies can think of to drain money out of us.

Plus, like someone said, this is all a festival about some dude that probably didn't exist.

You can thank the industry for that. It's always lucrative to commercialize (and milk for all it's worth) the common denominator of the majority of the population, and in the US, it's Christians, i.e. Christmas. So there's an entire Christmas industry, forcing Christmas down your throat and every other orifice (music, decorations, frankincense, cookies, and you dont' want to know about the stuff that goes into the remaining orifices, but trust me, it exists, and it's Christmas related) for as long as they can get away with it. And it seems they can get away with it throughout the entire month of December (with a little warmup mid-November).

QUOTEChristmas to me is a celebration of exclusion.
Well of course. If you're not a lucrative market, screw you.

I know this is a cliché but Christmas is not about presents! Of course everyone like to receive expensive and cool things but it's that really that important?... Just be happy for being with your family and pass some time with your friends. You'll see that a single day with then it's by far much more important than any PSP slim or xbox that you could received.

For us it's just another day... No special feelings what so ever.
I guess that's what you get for living in a Judeo/Muslim country

Actually, I'll take the 360 please.
I spend most of my life with family and friends, if I did the same on Christmas Day it would be like any other day. On the other hand, I spend most of the year wishing for material posessions, because it's hard saving up for things on a £5 a week wage. If I want something, I wait for Christmas or my birthday.

So for me, Christmas is most definitely about presents and gifts and cookies and big dinners with turkey and gravy and yorkshire puddings and those oh-so-tasty little sausages wrapped in bacon. The list could go on, but I think you get the point.

Tricky one this. They do go over the top, but part of living in a multicultural society includes accepting the culture of the country you're in. I don't know about the States but recently we're seeing a huge shift in the UK where elements of our own culture and customs are being suppressed so as not to offend residents from other cultures. Which seems a bit hypocritical when not taking offence at the customs of others is the whole point of being multicultural. If I lived in Israel I'd expect to be getting Hanukka "pumped down my throat", it's just the dominant culture of the place I'd be living in. I'm just saying it works both ways, that's all. Opt out in whatever ways you can, and if the people around you don't accept that then they're just idiots.

The songs wind up everyone who works in Retail. It sucks, but it could be worse (two days with 7 hours of live steel drums anyone? That wasn't a fun weekend).
