I Quit Christmas !
That's it, I'm tired of this shit.

I'm tired of all the pressure and expectations,
All the shopping and buying shit people won't be grateful for anyway.

I'm tired of all the fake holiday cheer, and all the demanding
request.

I'm done !!
I'm buying one present for my 9 year old daughter and that's it.

Everybody else can deal with it.

Next year, I will not be hanging lights, or decorating a tree.
Not that it wont be done at my house, I will not be participating. I won't be a scrooge and ruin it for everybody else I'm just opting out of this mindless bullshit.


I shall be free !!!

If she doesn't want it, can I have it?

What is it? A 'My little pony'? I've always wanted a 'My little pony'.

Or is it a Nintendo DS? That would be even better.

Is it the 3D version?

I'm so excited!

You just gotta do it in moderation and not leave everything till last minute. Don't shoulder all the responsibility. Make your family and friends share it.

Christmas rules! Family, friends, parties, presents, mistletoe, hot toddys, Christmas cookies and dinner, Christmas music, wheeeeee!

Re: I Quit Christmas !
I concur, It's a big headache, that cost big money, all the bills flying in, all the presents people expect that you buy for them, the money it cost to go out to celebrate.

To top it off, the new years celebrations, the boxing day sales. The system really wants our money.

It is what you make of it or allow it to be, my kids are coming home, the plan is to go to church as a family Monday evening, go snowmobiling, hot tubing, watch Christmas movies and eat some good food for a couple of days. Just spend time together, to me this is the most important part of this celebration. xmas

I beat you to it... i felt like this for the last 2 years.

Yes lets waste: time, gas , money, electricity, and oil, to make our houses look tacky.

And we're suppose to be stressed for 2 months for one fucking day that has lost it's context.

Re: I Quit Christmas !
I just don't like having to be around a bunch of family members who don't give a shit about each other, but pretend that they do on Christmas Eve.

We all have a dinner and everyone fake laughs, fake socializes, and then as soon as everyone leaves we forget about each other and don't speak to each other until next Christmas.

It's just all so phony.

Re: I Quit Christmas !
It is what you make it. For us, good food, family time, and present or two and lots of love. I don't spend much money, we do lots of baking and cooking. I spent exactly one morning buying presents (which are practical in nature).

Totally hear you! No tree this year for me. I put some lights on a plant stand so I guess it's like a festivus pole. I have a young son and I'm not filling his head full of commercial christmas fantasies. He's not going to sit on some pedo's lap in the mall or learn about satan claws with his slay bells who spies on kids. I bought a couple of pressies for the kids but no dollar store crap to fill stockings and told everyone else I'm just not buying gifts so they shouldn't bother. No piles of junk food that will just make everyone sick and fat. No dumbass christmas musik, ugh. Lot's of people I know are done but we can still get together and have a nice meal and be grateful for each others company,
