        OK folks, another chance to vent about what you love and hate about this time of year.


        I love the spirit of giving, but hate those "Giving Trees" where the reciepents are demanding the latest gaming system of the newest game (Both of which are too dang much!)

        I hate the commercialism of it all.  It's all about relieving us of as much money as possible.

        I hate not having money to buy any presents, but I am comfortable with it.  I try to do stuff like give heirlooms or bake or make something.  However, the recipients don't seem too appreciative of that, for some reason.  Heck, I'd be happy to GET something for a present.  My b-day is the week before Thanksgiving, so the non-gifting starts there.  My little 4 yr. old granddaughter gave me a birthday card the other day, then wanted it back to give to her daddy!  I told her no, his birthday isn't until June!  I think for Christmas I'll get a book from my daughter.  The library she takes Abbey to for storytime has free books outside...LOL

        I love the sentiment but hate that we tend to forget it the rest of the year.

        I love that it is a time of remembering those who mean something to us and forgiving those we wouldn't necessarily forgive any other time of year. I hate that we only stop to think about those at holiday time and once the holidays are over it is right back where it started from.

        okay i guess i forgot to say the things i love about this time of year. 
        uh, it's not so darn hot outside
        it might snow!
        lots of holiday tv shows, some of them funny, even!
        families get together (maybe not mine, but I've heard this happens!)
        there is a spirit of giving going on everywhere for other people/businesses.
        pictures with Santa Claus!
        elves!
        Happy New Year!

        and more I hate:
        giving so taking can begin
        too many new christmas carols not enough old ones
        TRAFFIC!!!!OMG!!!
        (okay, this year that won't bother me so much personally)

        I hate the commercialization....I don't think Mr. Jesus recognizes his birthday.

        I don't like (not hate) the whole Santa thing.  For every young children, he is fun.  But, there are lots of problems with Santa.

        I love Christmas Eve candle light services.  And I love Christmas Day dinner with my family.

        Got to agree with that. I don't think that children or adults alike should ever be deprived of something magical. To suppress that and wage a war of what is more important, Santa or a "higher power" is just a tad too radical for me.

        We all believe in a higher power and i don't think we end up worshiping Santa our whole life because we believed in him as a child.

        Jesus would not be too pleased with many things but I do not believe that Santa is one of them.

        well, regardless of it being Xmas, Christmas, Il Fitri, Ramadan, Kwanzza, or Hannukah, we hopefully can all just say safe and happy holidays

        oh, and sorry, if I butchered the spelling of anyone's holiday, lmao

        I love to celebrate Drunky Day. I try to commerate it at least once a week.  But least we forget, Drunky Day is also I've got a Bitch of a Hangover Eve.
