I went to target with my husband and son the other day, I literally saw only Christmas reeves being put up and I proceeded with a big ass grin on my face and galloped through the rest of the trip screening "omg omg Christmas is almost here!!!!!" My husband understands how much it means to me. Maybe you shouldn't be such a freaking Scrooge! "Jingle bells jingle bells la la la la la "

#6 some people dislike Christmas simply because they can't afford it. They want to buy gifts for family and friends, but can't, and often work full time so don't have the time to make gifts instead. Then Christmas rolls around and they feel like a guilty Scrooge as people hand them gifts, even though they've told them to please not do that as it can't be reciprocated.

In other words, Christmas sucks when you're poor.

All though I do agree with you #22 about that part of Christmas being a problem for some people, its also sad to see that's what Christmas is all about to some people as well in terms of the holiday only being about "gifts". Christmas is more than what the holiday companies marked it up to be. People shouldn't feel guilty if they can't do gifts for people they care about. It should be focused on spending time with your family, enjoying the activities and traditions a family may do that is or is not religious. Still, people feel pressured about the gifts part regardless. I don't feel pressured. If I can't afford this year, well the rest of you just better suck it up because I don't care if I receive gifts either since I care more about seeing my family and hanging out together with them. When I can afford gifts, I make it up for "missing" out last year since some people in my own family only care about the gifts part (no, they are not young children that don't know any better unfortunately)... those ass hats I love and hate at the same time. :/

It's sad that people feel like Scrooges during that time of year. It's one of my absolute favorite times of year (Halloween and summer closely follow)! Many people think my family is weird because we are SO into Christmas, but we do nothing religious during that time, because we're not religious. For us it's about family. Some people in our family can afford big fancy gifts, some of us can't. It's not about that for us though. Heck, my brother and I usually Christmas shop at the thrift shop for the gifts we give!

Welcome to life of retail. Most places hire seasonal people for 4 weeks, craft stores hire seasonal people for 3 months! We've already got Christmas stuff up... overtaking our Halloween stuff.
