I hate 'em, both Thanksgiving and Christmas although I've had way more of them than most of you. I really dislike anything that disrupts my routine and both of those are major disrupters to me. Thanksgiving was OK while my mom was alive but now it's just a big hassle for little reward and too much prep and clean-up. Christmas is the most ridiculous holiday ever. Every year it gets farther and farther away from it's original meaning and intent. Now it's all about commercialism and spending stupid amounts of money. Most adults and kids these days get whatever they want whenever they want it anyway so it's just redundant to get more stuff. The crap my grandkids have stuffed in their house is obscene, besides the toys they each have their own desktop computers, Ipads, game tablets, phones, every electronics gizmo you can think of and they're all under 10. When I was a kid I had a couple special toys maybe....they have hundreds or more. It's fucking crazy.

couldn't agree more on the majority of kids and adults already getting what they want when they want it. I feel like a scrooge most holidays, I mean I give gifts and all but I just don't get into the celebration kind of like with birthdays, I just don't give a fuck. Congratulations, you were born, lets celebrate, great for kids, dumb for adults. I don't like a reminder that Im another year older.
Do I sound like a grump? Its cuz I am. Im an old fart now too.

I stopped seeing the point in celebrating birthdays and Xmas when I was about 15.

Yeah, I turned into an old man at a young age 😂

Bah, who celebrates anything anymore??? I just keep my holiday gatherings simple and it's just a few people in my family. Thanksgiving next year I'm just going to go out for dinner instead.

Not a fan either. Motherfuckers start playing xmas music and putting up decorations in October before its even halloween. Forcing this bs holiday down people's throats months before it starts.

Putting up Christmas shit before Remembrance Day should be a jailable offence.

Aren't you guys forbidden to reunite under the same roof or even keep in contact between eachother?

Not quite really. Just my immediate family and do keep in touch often with other family members.

I fucking love the holidays. Nothing but good memories of getting plastered in my youth with my friends and brothers while we slid down the steepest hills and forests in our neighborhood on anything we could find. VW bug hoods, garbage can lids, etc.

I have a 12 year old now and he keeps me young. Its still a magical time for him and I enjoy getting caught up in it.

I get annoyed at xmas shit coming out in fucking October in the name of capitalism though. Cant we get through one damned holiday before we start the next?

The three holidays I hate the most are Christmas, thanksgiving, and Easter. When I was younger I used to get absolutely hammered to get through them. I would be pounding shots before going to church on Christmas eve and Easter. It wasn't unusual to do 10 shots before church. I would usually do 5 double shots of gin and I rarely ever made mixed drinks. There is no joy on those three holidays. This year I skipped thanksgiving and Easter. If I could figure out a way to skip Christmas I would do it. Now that all my grandparents are dead it's a few less events to go to. I think the biggest issues are the figurative mask we would all put on to show up for church on Easter and Christmas. I was raised going to church every Sunday and I never thought very highly of the people that went there. I considered it to be a complete waste of time. It felt like complete brain washing to show up for 2 to 3 hours every Sunday. My memories of going to church as a child seeped into adulthood and I actively avoided anyone who made a habit of going to church on Sunday. The figurative mask is what made it fake. People would act one way on Sunday and completely different the other 6 days and 21 hours. I know we don't discuss religion on here but this is why I hate these holidays. This year I don't even have the food to look forward to. I am predicting a very bad illness the night before and will be quarantining at home.

Fucking hate this time of the year my b day then Christmas then New Years. 🤦‍♂️

Always had shitty christmases as a kid never got what I wanted my dad always started fights with my mom ate nasty ass food and it is cold as fuck and it snows.

Now I’m older work dies during this time it’s still cold and snows have to spend a shit load of money on presents and now I always argue with my wife around the holidays 🤦‍♂️

Only good thing is having the kids enjoy their presents Christmas morning except the older one he never gets excited for shit.

I’m gonna try to be positive this year already off to a bad start Damn guy at work sits across from me decided to play Christmas music all month and it drives me crazy I hate Christmas music and tv programming is horrible how many times can you watch home alone and a Christmas story? 🤦‍♂️

Already had to order the new iPods and oculus VR headset and more shit is coming not going to stores ordering everything online had to go to Walmart and shoe carnival today to grab a few things shits already crazy fuck my life

But like I said I’m gonna try to stay positive I’m gonna take most of Christmas week off vacation days unless it’s busy for some reason then money talks and I’m gonna try not to argue with the old ball and chain that’s gonna be nearly impossible literally told her ass get the monoclonal therapy for a week before you get bad and she waits until she gets bad 🥊 but I’m gonna try this year.

You have a wife and kids, I see no reason for your unhappiness.

I gave some idiot a good gift the other day. I put a hidden camera in my trunk. I laid a few $1 bills and a $20 in the back. I then went and ordered my groceries online from Walmart. And guess what! I went to pick up my groceries at the pickup location, I acted tired and stupid..... the sucker took the bait and took the $20! Funny as hell, he told the cops he thought it was a tip! Well, they hauled his ass off to jail and he was fired on the spot!

Merry Christmas to all the Thieves!

When it gets crammed down ur throat u have a tendency to grow up and hate it, seen many a pastors daughter turn into ho's and their brothers become druggies, etc... And vice versa.... Some dont care for the holidays , i like them but i also hate the fake faces, we all carry one...
