.... and the antithesis ....

For grins, starting in June, I’ll walk into a place I’m known and say, “Bah. Humbug. I’m practicing for Christmas”

Ditto on the humbug. The main problem with holidays is they occur on set dates. December 25th could roll around and I'm not in the mood. Would be better if we could celebrate them when we want to.

If it wasn’t for the first world consumeristic hedonistic traditions, I just might enjoy the holiday period.

Ham with cherry sauce, some egg nog with brandy and nutmeg sitting in front of the fire after a sweet day of skiing off the deck is all I need. I can only save my soul each year by seeking out and helping someone in need.

BTW, am I the only one that enjoyed last year’s Zoom Xmas?

I don't believe in any of this of course....

But I still enjoy the holidays, and I'm always grateful when I can get together with extended family, many of which I only get to see once every year or two.

No Bahs here.. Merry Christmas ya'll!

I think you may have hit on something. I'm good with hedonism but the consumerist part has, I think, gotten old as I've gotten older. I really don't want people giving me things.

Also, as happens in life, the family time isn't what it used to be. Almost all the adults from my past are gone and it feels like no one has replaced them. Then I realize they have been replaced by my brother and sister and me. What a shock it is to be with the family and realize that mom is 80 and I'm the next oldest!

Edit: my beloved has informed me that I'm not the next oldest, she is. By two years.

I make Scrooge look like a happy elf. What I ever liked about the Christmas season was killed off when I joined the post office. I work for a small town yet still have 580 addresses to deliver 6 days per week and amazon packages on Sundays.

Most days, I will deliver 230 packages so I celebrate the end of the dang holiday instead.

Besides, I am getting a crown and root canal this week for my Christmas gift....I would have been happier with a lump of coal and the flu.

My favorite day of the year is the day all of the Christmas crap goes back in the containers and back into storage.

I hate everything about Christmas, it was fun when my boys were little, but now it's just work and a mess.

I think glitter is what killed it for me.

---Naaa...just joking.
I don't mind the holidays...they make my wife happy. She loves that kind of stuff.
I could live without the excessive commercialism....but that's pretty much all holidays now.
