Default The anti-Christmas thread.

I wind up doing this every year...

What is it you hate about Christmas? For me, there's several things...

1) Commercialism. You have to virtually force me to give an idea for a present. I hate people who ask for stupidly large amounts of stuff, and the whole "you've got to spend far more than you can afford!" outlook on the holiday season.

2) Christmas Music. I hate the carols, I hate the festive music... hate it all.

3) Decorations. They are gaudy, offensive to the eye, and as tasteful as cat vomit. What's more, I invariably lose a whole weekend having to help put them up, and then another taking them down!

4) Social obligations. It's not that I don't like my family... I just don't do socialising. My idea of a party is having two friends over. I don't do small talk, and I really don't want to have to go through showing people what I got for Christmas over and over, whilst being bored out of my skull by pointless stories about how they've been.

5) Political correctness. I'm not Christian, but it is a Christian holiday, and I hate people who try to change that almost as much as I dislike the holiday itself.

I agree with all of those.
I also hate being woken up at 7 in the morning by having a room full of younger siblings shout at/jump on me. :P

Indeed, I agree with all of those. This year all I'm getting is a couple shirts and a book... because I don't really need anything else.

And political correctness is just....... bad.

i hate buying people gifts, i mean i like the whole shareing idea but i just HATE when everyone expects you to buy gifts for the following reasons:
A) Im cheap
B) I never know what to buy, and i dont want to look stupid
C) Wrapping the damn things, its horrible.
I think moeny is the greatest gift. it requires no wrapping, the person will be able to buy something they actually want, and you dont have to think about what to buy. and the biggest reason is i dont have to go get the presents, i hate going shopping. most of the time its Walk in. Grab blister pack/box set. Pay. Have a chat with other gamers. Leave. but when i have to buy something for my family it always seems to take weeks. but no you cant give money, its impersonal.

Also i hate the idea of a christmas party most of my friends(long with 60% of britian) have. which is as follows. You go into town, you get drunk, you wake up the next day in a gutter. hows that fun? i feel like crap in the morning, you spend loads of moeny and you cant even rememebr the good bits.

I hate the modern Christmas, because of commercialism, music, and of course...

Why do people celebrate if they aren't Christian?

I mean, you're allowed to, but really, if you want to celebrate Christmas, please, don't persecute us. Did tha Nazis celebrate Chanukkah[sp]? Of course, thats an overstatement and a very extreme analogy, but still, for all the people who liek to say all year that Christianity is a load of ca-bunk, and that everyone who is Christian is a right-wing fanatic, I would like to say...

[glow=green,2,300]If you hate Christians, why do you celebrate and adore thier second most important holiday!??![/glow]

Four magic words, followed by four more: Rig Up Claymore Mines. Make Sure They Know.

I basically hate all of what wargamer hates, plus one more bit. You don't get chocolate eggs to celebrate the crucifixion of the easter bunny at Christmas.I am all in favour of a year-round celebration of that momentous moment in 1997.

I'm also not a fan of geting gifts for others becuase I really don't know what to get for people.

I think just the first four words were adequate. ;D
