  1. Christmas is amazing, but there has to be something about it that you absolutely can't stand!

    Of course, there are those of you that just pure Grinches!

    So what is it. What is it about Christmas that you just hate?!
     
  2. How Christmas sales (and songs playing on the radio I might add) start before/on thanksgivings >.< how Christmas stuff remains even after Christmas XD Oh yes, and let's not get started on the unfortunately big lose vs win ratio I get with presents (not that I don't appretiate the thought though XS)

  3. I hate when I want to buy a specific gift for someone, but find out I won't have enough money left over to buy another person the gift that I wanted to get them before. So I have figure things out.

  6. The drama. Holidays bring out the worst from some people, many members of my family included. x__x

  7. The idea that I need a holiday to celebrate kindness once a year, rather than simply be kind all year long.

    Christmas music is a close second.

  9. Where were YOU when you admitted your hatred for Christ?
     
  10. On iwakuroleplay forums, on this page :P
     
  11. Everything I'm force-fed about christmas is a reason for me to hate it. Commercialism, the music playing everywhere, the bell-ringers for the salvation army (real christmassy how the salvation army donates money to organizations who oppose gay rights), people I otherwise respect shouting "Get that Happy Holidays crap outta here!" just because somebody acknowledges that christmas isn't the only holiday being celebrated in the winter, everybody who asks me if I'm doing anything special for christmas, the knowledge that most of my friends aren't available for friend-things because christmas, not having cuddles at the fireplace, feeling weird for always giving gifts to people on the summer solstice and never in winter...

    But honestly, the one thing I despise most about christmas is that I no longer have the opportunity to steal it. Corporations have already ruined it, so I don't get to.
     
  12. When all People think about is Presents and what they'll be getting. But I hate it more whenever I see someone not satisfied with a gift. Nowadays, I just get money as a gift. Mainly because people don't know what to get me.

  13. I somewhat agree with everything said above. Though what really ticks me off is the fact that store clerks etc. have to say Happy Holidays instead of a simple Merry Christmas, all because people with religion other than Christianity can't respect a simple celebration. Christmas, in fact, every holiday, has lost its warmth. Halloween was depressing because I hardly saw any kids out in costumes and stuff. All holidays are now are days for making money. It hardly comes with the hope and celebration anymore. People are slowly loosing their value. Now, it's all about the brand name on your damn clothes or the way you look/act.

    That and I can hardly stand most Christmas music.

  15. Well, to be fair, I'm not a big fan of that character from literature either... He does seem to have a remarkable large fan club, but so does Twilight, so. :bsmile:

  16. All. Of. It.

    The holiday cheer.
    The music.
    The jolliness.
    Happy children.


    I hate that Krampus isn't well known, that's a holiday I love; Happy Krampus you little brats!

  17. I swear the next time I hear Last Christmas I'll tear someone's head off. Also, I hate how whenever I ask my loved ones what should I get them for Christmas, they respond with laconic 'I don't know, I have everything I could ever want' and I'm stuck pondering over perfect present for DAYS. Why do they insist on making it so difficult for me when I ALWAYS tell them specifically what I want? Actually, most of the time, they throw money at me, tell me to order my presents on the internet and the only thing they have to do is to wrap them. If this trend continues, I'll probably just draw something for them; that should force them not to be so lazy next time because my drawings usually burn eyes of anyone who looks at them.

  18. 'Hate' is such a strong word, I think I'll go for 'dislike' instead. I dislike grinches or people that try to ruin the spirit of Christmas. I'm not religious myself, but I do celebrate Christmas as a, if you would, generic holiday that happens every December. I don't participate in the religious aspects of things, but I love receiving and giving presents/cards, seeing family members, eating nice food and just having a good time overall.

    Be cheery! Xmas only happens once a year and I personally love it. I don't like people who try to ruin Xmas on purpose for other people because that's just mean and not nice. If you don't like or celebrate it, then keep it to yourself. Simple as that.

  19. The general run-up and busyness of work leading up to Christmas. As a postman, I tend to really suffer with a heavy workload thanks to people ordering all of their shit online and having me be the one to deliver it. It's never fucking fun.

  20. People who insist that I should be happy "BECAUSE IT'S CHRISTMAS."
    Big fucking whoop. I'm not happy on any other 364 days of the year, why should I be happy now?

    Christmas songs. They're crap, they're overplayed, they're unoriginal, and they're repetitive.

    Christmas cheer. When loud, obnoxious, overly-happy people become even more loud, obnoxious, and overly-happy.

    Christmas decorations - tacky bits of plastic that look like somebody got a 3D printer drunk, and sprinkled glitter over whatever unearthly abomination it crapped out.

    The holiday in general. Let's face it, the entire thing isn't about "goodwill to all men" or "holiday spirits" or "being with the ones you love." It's about buying presents for people you don't like with money you don't have - all so some fat, decrepit, greedy, malicious, callous, hateful CEO and all his cronies can laugh at you for doing it while rubbing themselves with your money.

    "Merry Christmas" my arse. I'm going to see if I can spend the day with some cheap alcohol and a bad movie.
