Spending time with family that you dont like...
The stress of the obligatory shopping for gifts with

It will be another year of consumer brainwashing, with all of the clueless seeking fulfillment in material things. Throw in lots of alcohol, excess food, and store stampedes and it really puts one in the holiday spirit.

Re: Anyone else HATE the prospect of ANOTHER holiday season?
You mean Christmas season.

I hate all the political correct expressions and thus denying white culture the celebration of their heritage.

I'm not religious nor believe in any imaginary friend in the clouds but to me it will always (be the) Christmas (season).

Actually I mean thanksgiving AND christmas...

For thanksgiving its the potential guilt of where you go or who you invite and what you make and the extra groceries and sitting around watching football all day with people you havent seen in months or dont have relationships with much...

blah blah blah...small talk...awkward silence...people who invite unexpected guests...

Christmas...has just turned into a TOTAL frenetic cluster EF...its absurd....no more meaning...I think they should make christmas for parents who have kids beneath the age of 12years old...that is the only time its special either for the kids or parents......

OP - there's no law you have to participate!

Skip the family and volunteer at a shelter or better yet old folks home... Spend the day visiting with people who have no one. Might give you some perspective.

If you're not part of the solution, you are the problem... Maybe holidays aren't any fun cuz you're there throwing a blanket soaked with your whiny slobber on everything...

Not trying to be mean just saying... And btw sounds like you are clinically depressed. Do herbs or see a doctor, but do something... Life really is better than that...
James 1:2-4 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

I'm lovin' it. Got two little grandbabies, so I get to enjoy the holiday season the way I like it. With friends and family. No expensive gifts, no BS, just good cooking and good company. I have totally scaled down the whole Christmas thing, and it is now a very enjoyable holiday.

When friends rejoice both far and near, how can I keep from singing"

Re: Anyone else HATE the prospect of ANOTHER holiday season?
every day is a blessing
ever holiday is another time we can love on our family and the lost, the poor, the hungry.

don't think about what a holiday can do for you

think about what you can do in celebration of our Lord for others who have nothing.

Pray for the lost, give to the hungry, love the unloved.

This is exactly the kind of bullshit that makes the clueless so clueless. Insisting that something is wrong with the OP simply because they don't want to go along with the mindless charade of the holidays. Maybe the holidays aren't fun because the OP has seen through all of the lies. So please, don't try and make yourself feel better by trying to get the rest of us to play along with you in your delusions.

^^^^this and BTW OP and others - don't save volenteering for just holidays...people are lonely all year long.

the greatest gift doesn't come from the store it comes from within - share it all year long not just the holidays. You'd be surprised at how good it feels.

Re: Anyone else HATE the prospect of ANOTHER holiday season?
I don't always look forward to them, don't think OP is depressed, just probably, like many I know, frustrated with the lack of real meaning.

For those without food, homes, TG/Xmas could be a real blessing. For those with family that feels entitled to "x" and "x" and the holidays, it's not too enjoyable, for me it's infuriating that certain family members just can't be grateful for anything without a high price tag.

Too many hidden expectations, too much stress, too much consumerism, too much trying to keep up w/the Joneses, I'm older, I've seen the change over a number of years.

When we were kids, we were lucky to get 3 presents, and those at best, were very inexpensive, but we were still happy/grateful to have received.

My grandmother's xmas present one year was a "piece" of fruit smuggled out of a restaurant, that was during the Great Depression.

Can you imagine (ha!) giving your kids/grand kids a piece of fruit for xmas? The look on their face? (Honestly, I've thought about it just to drive a message home).

Certain family members in my hood can't be bothered year-round to as much as call, extend an invite, although we have called and extended invites and bought meals, cooked meals, this/that --- with the exception of "transactional purposes" but come holidays (specifically the gift-giving ones) they show up like cockroaches coming out of their hidey-holes.

And celebrating the birth of Jesus? I don't think they even really are believers to tell yeah the truth, even in concept, i.e., how about just follow the 10 commandments and we'll call it even-steven? Nope can't even do that---but they show up for the gifts.

No, I don't care for the holidays, but we are also a "blended" family so that accounts for some of it.
