I hate it. I hate hearing everyone talk about how perfect Christmas is with all of their family around. How amazing this time of year is. Why doesn't anybody think about people like me who have no family around, when this time of year is the worst time of year. I hate it and it makes me suicidal :( I wish others just spared a thought for me and others like me in the same situation. I'm glad they're happy, of course I am, but I can't help feeling jealous at the same time. :(

I'm not fond of Christmas either. It's usually hot, Christmas day always reaches 40 celsius and above, and we also get the summer solstice. I find the constant consumerism perturbing and that the remnants of a pagan ritual from Europe based on the winter solstice is severely lacking.

Christmas day is always the worst day of the year for me. I usually implore people not to get me anything, and when a family member does it makes me truly upset as if they have not respected my wishes. I have said the thing this year, I sincerely hope that I don't receive anything. I am also not fond of spending time with family, I don't get a lot out from interactions from them. Personally I rather be alone, I also seldom experience a real winter solstice, So I do envy Europe over that.

Many of us want a big happy family Christmas but unfortunately that isn't a reality for the majority. Mine will be quiet but I am accepting of that. I see it as a day to rest and eat and watch TV. I have bought some of my favourite foods and will talk on the phone to some people.

Don't feel suicidal. Just pamper yourself a bit. Make it a nice day for yourself if you can.
