Can't be bothered with Christmas
Am I the only one who can't be bothered with Christmas this year? Is it me or is the whole thing rubbish? I'm not a fan of the whole family situation as I'm not keen on family and spending time with my parents and the whole buying and recieving presents thing a bit overated? If anything it makes me damn right miserable. Does anyone else think the same? Or is it just me being a miserable sod?
you and me both
ive been totally in love with christmas since been a kid (wizard of ozz is magical for me Smile) but this last couple of years i think life has beaten it out of me,,,,im trying to enjoy myself and giving gifts does make me happy....i just think with work pressure etc its grinding me down a bit,,,,plus the constant christmas sale adverts started in october here and thats just goin too far - least wait till December
Me three.:frown:
I do remember a timewhen you could walk through a shopping centre in Novemeber and not see a single thing related to Christmas, so the lead in to Christmas was shorter and sweeter, and it was what it was a suppoesed to be, and opportunity for people to catch up, travel, take time off to recharge the batteries.

Now, Christmas is so in your face that by December you just want it to go away, everything feels like an obligation, and the simple things, the simple joys and pleasures, like running out on the streets to show your mates what you got for Christmas, the street was filled with kids on new bikes, scooters, green kids are stuck inside playing festering video games and being anti-social.

Oh, and once the shelves are stripped of xmas shit, you just know that it is going to be filled with the next commercialisation and obligation....EASTER
The Boxing Day sales are great though.
When a subject is highly controversial — and any question about sex is that — one cannot hope to tell the truth. One can only show how one came to hold whatever opinion one does hold. One can only give one's audience the chance of drawing their own conclusions as they observe the limitations, the prejudices, the idiosyncrasies of the speaker.

You three Bah Humbugs wait until the Ghost of Christmas Present, and Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, comes visiting you, I bet you will all be happy to see Christmas and all subsequent Christmas's to come..!
