Does anyone else kind of... dislike Christmas? or am I crazy?

I feel like it's way over-commercialized, my family works our asses off to provide for extended family causing massive stress for an entire week or so in advance, and it's not even really worth it. We spend money on people who are spending money on us, so what, we're trading money?
I would be happy enough spending time with my family without all the formalities.
Besides, decorating for Christmas annoys me for reasons I can't explain. Trees are ok, but lights are just a little... stupid.

Just my opinion. I'm a scrooge.

you obviously haven't found out what other things you can do with christmas lights haha

and i agree. i hate christmas, have hated it for years... i simply abolished it in my family. meaning no one is allowed to give me stuff (if they try i won't accept it, which would be mean, if they didn't fucking know!). my parents still go to my grandparents' house for dinner, i just don't. i hate having to give or get gifts. it's pointless and doesn't express any real affection if it's conventionalized. bottom line: i'm with you.

*goes off into a furious, incoherent rant concerning final results, the stupidity of only placing important codes in certain hard-to-find locations and how the Department of Education is a collective group of utter bastards*

I agree on the Christmas idea. Giving gifts just because it's not socially acceptable to not give gifts is silly. Why do people celebrate Christmas and exchange gifts and buy trees even though they aren't religious at all? Because the expensive seasonal sugarplum tea puts them "in the Christmas mood" through commercial brainwash, I tell you!

My family celebrates the Solstice, and we give ourselves a $5 budget to buy gifts for each other. I enjoy because we really don't take it seriously, it's just fun for me at least.

That is a really good idea! That way it stays fun and you still get to having a day that is centered on family without being ridiculous...

I'm perfectly fine with getting nothing for Christmas, as long as I don't have to give anything to anyone else. Fair trade, I say.

PS: Still haven't seen that "lights" video. Have no desire too, either. I'd explain why, but...no comment.

WHYYY does this always happen to me?
Whyy do they insist on falling madly in love with me before I'm in love with them.
For one thing, I'm not even really looking to be in love.
For another thing, it's the most annoying thing ever when I have this person who WON'T LEAVE ME ALONE. I'm like the most introverted person ever, and I hate people intruding on my alone time.

This is the second time this has happened to me and I feel bad because I should have put a stop to it before it got to this point. But seriously? WTF?

^ gah. had the same. at least once, maybe twice, but things haven't really been talked about in the other case... (my other rants referred to that case though, which explains why it's pretty much likely that 'twice' applies here).

and i'm sorry i can't tell you how to deal with it, cause i didn't really handle it that well

About all I can suggest is that if they insist upon invading your personal space, tell them firmly that it's not OK to do so and they need to respect your rights. If they don't, do everything you can to make sure they don't do it again.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Why the fuck am I considered a jerk for pointing out that 4 servings of Ramen, two slices of raisin bread with butter and a bowl of cereal is a bit too much to be eating at 3:30?
