Do you all feel insane social pressure at Christmas time?
It's hard for me to enjoy Christmas because I feel so much social pressure to be "jolly" and blah blah blah. It gives me anxiety, and makes me not want to go to outings that consist of ' mandatory Christmas fun'.

I never felt this way until I moved to the US. Do you all feel the same? How do you manage to avoid the festivities ? Do you feel depressed around this time of year?

Booze is about the only answer I fear.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.

I try and stay away. When I drink I get pretty sloppy. This happened at the company Christmas party a few days ago... Ended up an hour late for my night shift with a killer hang over.

Are there people that don't even celebrate? Like Christians other than harre chrisnas ( excuse my spelling)? Jesus wasn't even born this time of year. You can celebrate God's love everyday.

Re: Do you all feel insane social pressure at Christmas time?
Tremendous pressure, so much emphasis on "Christmas magic," so much expectation for this to always be a "magical" time of year, perfection is the standard when it comes to Christmas. Expectations of "Christmas miracles" and there can be feelings of disappointment and sadness if there are no miracles, no magic, or imperfections. The media is filled with images of happy families. They want your money, and tremendous effort has been put into requiring money to meet the expectations of Christmas in this country.

I'm not a Christian yet I do the whole present giving thing. Changes when you're a parent. It's more about anticipation and giving. The kids get into it as does the wife.

As far as the social aspect, yeah I know.. Fucking hate it myself.. But it's a thing. Explaining to the witless that a religion they hold dear is pointless.

Just focus on ten days after xmas and how in that time your anxiety will be a memory and not forefront.

Re: Do you all feel insane social pressure at Christmas time?
Do any of you feel a lot of social anxiety around Christmas time?

How many of you own guns?

Are you Republican or Democrat?

Do you have a one, two, or three bedroom home?

Do you have one or two bathrooms in your house?

How many people live in your house?

Anybody ever felt suicidal?

How do you feel about the Waco incident?

I have a lot more questions to come....

Is there a time of religious celebration in the country you came from? A festive time of year?

Christmas is not about religion. If you really think about it, it was adopted by some religion.

Giving gifts at the worst of the lean season is a symbol of preparedness. It is a moment in the black that is happy..

Think back to when there was very little. A time when winter meant life or death.

How else would you keep spirits alive? What better way??

Christmas is a tradition of saying we made it through last year, and here's promise/hope we'll make through the next.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
