Obviously as a child I loved Christmas but as I became an adult I got a bit disillusioned with the whole thing. It just seemed that there was no real message to it. It's not exactly a celebration of the birth of Christ as I believe originally it was a Pagan festival?. I like to buy gifts for my Children but I really don't like the consumerism and just greed really. I don't need anything. Not really. I've got heat, food, a bed to sleep in. There is nothing else that I NEED. I don't have presents anymore, I ask friends/relatives to donate the money to a charity that I chose. People bang on about the Christmas spirit etc .At least this way I feel like I've actually given something that will help others. I'm lucky. I don't need any help. I don't hate Christmas but I would just like it be worth more than buying and receiving load of clobber for no reason that I could justify.

I hate it with a passion.  I wouldn't mind it at all if it maybe lasted a week - but the fact that it now appears to start sometime in October so that the whole bloody thing last longer and longer.

As a festival to brighten up the dark winter nights - happy with that part. Lets have a couple of days off work - cover everything with lights and have a nice family dinner.  That's enough.

The real meaning of Christmas - and folks who even mention 'the real meaning of Christmas' quite frankly should shut up. It's all a load of old bollocks and most folks over the age of 15 know it.

 

If you are a Christian - get to church - the rest of the country - stop using it as an excuse to get pissed and act like adolescents.

 

yes I really really hate it.

I love Christmas and NYE because I get extra time off work, and it's a good excuse to laze around as there's nothing else to do anyway.
