"Bah, Humbug!"- What do you hate about Christmas?
« on: December 21, 2006, 05:29:53 am »
I personally despise Christmas Cards. They are boring, take up space and are bad for the environment. Unless you put money in it, just don't bother.

Fellow Forumers?

Having to thank people for crappy gifts. I mean, it doesnt matter if someone gives you a crapopy present, but then you have to write politle little letters to say how much you like it
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

political correctness. Don't give this "family" bs, it's about the birth of Jesus, and therefore Christianity. I really, really despise the terms "festive season" and "seasons greetings". Please ladym, change your avatar.

Figuring out what to give to others and being thankful for things you don't want.

The religion. Why can't we just enjoy it as the pagan festival that it started off as, or the capitalist bonanza that it's become?

Merry giftmas, everyone!
Not a winner anymore.

Seconded. These are the most pointless gift requirements since Valentine's Day cards. We have an agreement just not to bother giving these to each other.

The card, the lights, family, the food, the adverts yelling Christmas with toys and other crap in them  and when someone gives you a present, and you have to get them one. and then there's school, its so boring, we don't do anything! I'm learning less in science than I normally do.

The way they commercialized it.

The wait.

The cards.

The "love" and "joy" that is supposed to be felt, when really it is all about a baby being born 2000 years ago (No offence to Christians!)
No way dude, you're trolling me.

You know, it's the baby's birth that's supposed to inspire the love and joy.

Ya, but it's still just a baby. One is born every three seconds! (or whatever...)

And I know he was the messiah, I just personally believe that he was merely a good person that was remembered.

So by your logic you should be a sad man this Christmas.
