Just want to say ....
I am terrified of Christmas.
All the hype makes me feel sick.
It happens every year, there is no escape.
If it was just a religious day for Christians to celebrate...that would be fine.
But...what is it? This media hype this buying and selling frenzy.
This 'perfect' family day. That apparently can be purchased.

I must shop at the wrong place.
:eek2:
Seriously though, I dread it. Don't want to be part of it, yet to be in society it seems there is no opt out.
My xmas wish is....PLEASE MAKE IT GO AWAY. :panic:

Hi Human,

PLEASE MAKE IT GO AWAY - i know this feeling / thought.

i have felt that way mostly for over the last 10 yrs. it was not something i wanted to be bothered with or a part of.

Right now in Life, i am in my element & i have never been so enthused about the forthcoming Christmas period as i am just now.

I am busy putting our old decorations up around the home in ways i have NEVER ever thought of doin before.

i have almost finished shopping (on-line) for all the Xmas pressies i want to 'give out' this year. i have chosen & bought the Chrimbo cards & waiting on new 'fresh' gift wrapping paper to arrive.

i don't do the Traditional Dinner thing any more.

I am going to treat myself this year & stay at Home (last year i went to my sister's for Dinner & shared a few gifts, normally for many years previously i would decline the offer to go for Xmas lunch & avoid socialising with the close family)

For me Xmas is a chance to 'SHOP' / getting a feel-gud factor from giving pressies to others, a time to be creative, 'Busy', chillaxed & a TIME to 'HAVE FUN' (with others)

This year is already a FAB xmas for me.

I hope you find 'your way' through this years Xmas period.

you'll get your wish :It will go away' ... it does EVERY year :hug:

Hi Human
I agree with you. I dread Xmas. For me its the having to appear "happy" for a day. I dread waking up on xmas morning knowing that im expected to be joyful and excited. Im just not that type of person!!
My husband understands and doesnt push me to be someone im not but the rest of the family expect me to be like they are!
I feel for you Human, xmas is awful!

I do realise the serious behind xmas, at that time when people dread, however, I basically dread at that time of year, just in case...hopefully not, there could be any snow and ice, then, I couldn't get out, meaning I am prone to falling on icy conditions, and snow.

save up your pennies all year

fly downunder and spend Xmas day on the beach :D

we all love the xmas season and its got a lot more to do with sun sand and cold beer, than seeing Auntie Gladys for the only time all year or wearing ugly jumpers

some of the work Christmas Dos ive been to would blow your mind

one memorable year the CEO and his pissed wife came in on Camel (it was an Arabian Nights theme), she nearly fell off she was so drunk, they had a barney right there on the camel in front of the Entire Staff, it was hilarious. :D

how about the company douche bringing a Romanian Hooker who had a fake ass you could see through her dress, as she clambered drunkenly on stage and removed the microphone from the lead singer (she could do a better job you see!)

HILARIOUS. :D
