The Anti-Christmas thread!

Some people will call me a Scrooge, but I don't care.

The first Santa thread came up, so here's a thread for us Xmas haters to post our vitriol against Xmas!

I hate the music...and now the Xmas displays in stores are coming up well before Halloween!

But yeah, the music. The same 6 songs sung over and over by different artists who all think they have something special to contribute. Fugget it!

I think you know you are preaching to the choir with me on that sentiment!!!

I've tried to hold out as long as I can this year because I always get so much crap over it, but what it boils down to is:



CHRISTMAS SUCKS!

I am looking forward to Christmas this year mainly because of who I will be spending it with.

The rest of it still sucks.

do you really hate ALL of christmas, or is this just the anti-christmas MUSIC thread?

I dislike the music and commercialism too- AND agree that there shouldn't have to be a special day set aside for giving (in addition to the fact that I do not observe Christmas as a religious holiday), but regardless, I do enjoy the spirit of giving at the holidays. Love it!

You just said there shouldn't be a "special day" for giving....so take away the music, commercialism, constant advertisement, bell ringing in front of stores and enough food to pack on 20 lbs, and what's left?

As a Christmastarian I am offended. I hate the music but I love getting presents. I find myself a conflicted Christmastarian.

Christmastarian defined: One who believes that on Dec 25th all over the world people give each other presents. In order to not be excluded for religous/ethical/faith based reasons and not wanting to upset the elderly or ignorant ,or use the cop out of solstice, we celebrate Christmas.

Maybe I should clarify.....that is a good thing. Yes you can do that any other day, but, its none of that which bothers me.

It's mostly what you first said....the constant barrage of advertisements, the crazy atmosphere in EVERY shopping establishment for well over a month, the commercialization, the bombardment of bad music played loud and publicly everywhere you go, the hideous lights all over everything, etc......

I try to spend every Christmas away from doing Christmas crap. And the music sucks. And the decorations suck, especially when they're put up 2 months before. And those stupid all year Christmas stores. WFT?!?
