Anyone else here not that bothered by Xmas?
I can't be bothered with any of it.
It gets on my tits.
I started buying gifts yesterday!
i think i have all the gifts done except for miscellaneous relatievs who i will just get a bottle of wine or something for.
we put our tree up and decorated on sunday
i love christmas
It wasn't a massively successful trip either. I just got a few bits and bobs for a certain someone. I need to order other stuff online because its so bloody expensive in the shops. I wanted to get my mum SATC2 film and it was about £17 in HMV.
I think we're doing our tree this weekend. I can't wait! I'm going to convince my mum to make hot pimms.
but i'm not one of them.
Take a bit of the shine off
What's the point?
Donald Sutherland or Kevin McCarthy in Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

"yeah, its just another day tho isnt it?"
The only way I can see you not liking Christmas is if:
a) You have issues with your family
b) You're a massive loner and sight of others being happy disturbs you
c) You have to work through it as normal and resent everyone else
d) You're some annoying hippy anti-consumerist nut job
e) You're some annoying nut job Christian fundamentalist who think the spirit of Christmas has been lost
f) You suffered some tragic event in Christmases past and the sound of jingle bells instills panic attacks in you.
All valid reasons, but not ones I share. I love Christmas - good food, shit TV, time of work, people give me stuff, I give people stuff, more good food, drinking loads, silly traditions. I'm just pissed off I'm working up to and including Christmas Eve.
Yeah, I understnad that it can be a shit time for some people. (I sort of am one of those, but I am brilliant at ignoring stuff :D ) but people that just dislike it, I am suspicious of those. Hmmmm.
Booooo. I had to work last Christmas Eve! When I say work... I mean eat and drink, but still I was in the office. It sucks! This year I am working up until the 23rd and then I get three weeks off. THREE WEEKS.
I've just bought some relatively decent presents for other people though so I feel a bit more Xmassy, not a huge amount though.
I'm not railing against the rampant consumerism ablahblah or trying to remove other peoples' enjoyment of the season in any way, i'm just not into it and would rather just be left to enjoy not enjoying it. Rather than have to justify not liking it to all and sundry.
Apparently not liking xmas is akin to committing kittenharm.
Probably wouldn't start another thread like this, then.
