What are you going to do with Xmas this year?

I like holidays that give me a day off work, but that don’t involve anything else. Halloween and christmas are shoved down everyone’s throat, even the people who aren’t interested.

I for one don’t understand how a four year old could be excited about christmas. What exactly is she excited about? Just presents, or is there more?

She’s excited about the idea of putting up the tree and the lights, the snow, her grandparents coming to town, seeing santa at the mall. All that stuff. You have to remember, for them, it’s a pretty magical time.

for me and my sister it was really a good time because us and our parents spent time togther preparing everything, and to be with our dad doing stuff was kind of rare :)

Yeah, man.

It’s about getting together with the inlaws and outlaws, and arguing over stupid shit. Spending ridiculous amounts of money on stupid toys for your children (to be broken or ignored in 1-2 months), driving on icy roads in the dark, stringing lights up on precariously placed ladders in 30 degree weather, while footing the increase in your energy bill. Going into more debt, so your children smile just a little bit more, crying at New Years when you realize how old you are, and then going back to work! It’s awesome! Get in the spirit!!!!

All jokes aside, imagine the snow falling on some pine trees decorated with pretty white lights, holding your two year old daughters hand. You look down as the snow falls around her angelic face, full of wonderment. And all the above seems like a fleeting memory.

i see your point. i like a holiday that takes me from work too and i’m actually not that big on holidays myself- i’m just harassing you some. :wink: i like Halloween because i’m a bit morbid :twisted: and i like the stuff i can get in the stores- ghosts, pumpkins, vampires, and other stuff. i actually don’t care that much about Christmas and Thanksgiving though. and growing up i really didn’t care so much about the decorating and the family time as much as the getting stuff if i’m being honest. and really if you think about holidays anymore are just about stores emptying your pockets. they show you a picture of good will and cheer and happy family time- you get sucked in and try to replicate it by buying crap- the retail executives skip off to the bank.

my family doesn’t exactly do the whole holiday thing though. sure we got presents, but we never made a big production out of it with the decorating and the family crap. we don’t do "family time" anyway though, so my little brother and me pretty much grew up not giving a fuck about all of that. in fact we are pretty opposed to family activities. we just like to go off and do our own thing- always did.

and i suppose that’s why i’m not big on holidays. my family is a little weird and fucked up. :wink: plus i can be pretty ornery and cynical about things.

well now that I am old..lol..I can;t stand the spending part of the holidays, bit overall it can bring out the best in people and the worst in people -kinda like politics
as far as decorations my boys don’t really care about that stuff, bit I put up a few lights because we get snow and it’s all pretty and shit. Now my grandmother is psycho when she does her home
white tree has to be perfect and mega light display. Always one of the xmas tour homes near Seattle. I love it, but would never do it myself or pay the horrendous bill that follows…

i’m not sure what the weather is going to be here. usually Montana would have snow by now, but its back to being warm again. its weird. we had a big burst of snow. then it was gone and now its back to summer/fall weather.

i kind of wish it was cold. i like the winter better than summer.
