I hate X-mas.
I hate that people expect you to be nicer and happy during these days.
I swear that if i listen one more time to "all i want for xmas is you" and "last christmas' i will start screaming.
I hate all the Xmas decoration with all the glitter and the millions of little lights that make all houses look like UFOs.
The so called Xmas spirit if it comes close to me i will exorsise it.
I try to be a nice person as much as i can,but the troll in me wakes up this time of the year.
As for Santa....don't get me started.

Anyway if other fellow ATSers feel the same way,rant in here.Post videos,funny anti-xmas songs.Also i will like to remind that this is not a religious debate so i don't want to turn into a
Christians vs everyone else or
everyone else vs christians.

Both songs contain explicit lyrics and might insult some but they are really funny.Mods if you think they are inappropriate remove them.I can rant without them.

Christmas has lost all of its magic because of commercialism. It is hard to even be nice when you know everyone around you is in a fake magic happiness. But I try to take the time to reflect on myself as well as the human race, it is a good time to make changes.

I'm in full Grinch mode at the moment.

Good job I live in the middle of nowhere otherwise there would be carol singers bleeding all over the place.


I love laughing at people who complain they're broke because of christmas....suckers.

The commercialism is what i hate.I'm not Christian so i wouldn't celebrate it anyway,but what drives me crazy is that everyone has to be "in the mood" either you like it or not.

Middle of the grapevines near Cognac, France.

I hate the commercialism too. Plastic stuff to replace last years plastic stuff and more chocolate than a willy wonka factory...

Dump it to Mount Crumpit!

I try to like it, but I just can't.

I had so many years of having it rammed down my throat by people expecting me to be festive because it was Christmas that I'm just sick of it. I can decided for myself when to be happy, ta very much

I exchange cards and presents with some people because it's expected, but I try and get everything sent off before the middle of December, then it's out of the way.

I don't begrudge other people enjoying it and I don't mind wishing people seasons greetings. I like to see people happy.

BUT so much anticipation can only result in disappointment. Can anyone looking back at past Christmases honestly say they ever enjoyed one as much as they hoped to?

I wouldn't celebrate it for religious reasons and, much as I try to be charmed by Santa and the elves and reindeers - blah. Not for me. Too much, just too much of everything.

I do think, though, that the Winter season deserves to be celebrated. In the country, it's a beautiful time of year. The clean air, the smells, the dusting of frost over the landscape. The sheer quietness when it's snowed. Walking my dog in the current cold spell has been delightful.

Wrapped up warm, chucking a stick for a daft, energetic little mutt and taking the time to look up at the wintry sky, trees and fields makes me really appreciate being alive. And I don't feel like that very often.

It's even possible to look directly at a silvery Sun, peeping through the clouds.

The one thing I've always loved is a Christmas Tree and some years I put one up. It's artificial because I don't like to see healthy trees cut down for decoration and, to me, it seems like a good way to celebrate the season.

But the best way is to get out into the countryside and just enjoy it for what it is. No need really to bring anything into the house. Just get out and open your eyes and ears and have a good old sniff - not too near the sheep though

Agreed, the winter wonderland can be a beautiful thing (except for scraping ice off my windscreen and driving a car without a heater).

We had 8" of snow about 10 days ago and reaching out the door to clear it from outside the shutters with my small fireside shovel was quite amusing. I even made a snowman....first time in decades.

The big fat robin is in the garden, no tractors disturbing the peace, more light than usual from the reflection off the snow and a great excuse to get a big fire going for me and the cats.

Something else I don't like about xmas is all the stupid lights people put on their houses. What a waste and more chinese crap to be thrown away when it packs up.

WOW,i just saw some pictures from Cognac.It's amazingly beautiful.

I never understood why we need so much plastic just to be happy and cheerful.As for the chocolate i'm a chocolate lover so no problem there

reply to post by berenike

I don't mind gift exchange,you can't avoid that,i just can't stand all the craziness about people buy almost everything,because it's Xmas.
Seeing people happy it's kind of rare lately,but fake hapiness is even worse.Every Xmas feels like we step into Stepford(from Stepford wives movie) and everyone has to look perfect and smiley.It's creepy.

Yep, it's Christmas so you can bloody well be cheerful and enjoy it - or else. Way to put you in a festive mood

About that buying stuff because it's Christmas, I might have used that reasoning in the past to justify buying some bauble or another...... after all, if you can't treat yourself at Christmas.......

Take no notice of me, I don't usually need an excuse

Makes me glad to be out here far from the madness of civilisation.. Dont have to put up with the pretend kindness.. fake cheer.. blatant materialism.. cheesy music.. fruitcakes - ( anyone who gives people fruitcake should be on a terrorist watch list.. Fruitcakes are evil ) .. Its a sham.. There is no goodwill to man and peace on earth.. The whole things a blatant celebration of greed and materialism..

Well i always find a good excuse when i go shopping crazy.Fortunately doesn't happen often,otherwise i would have to find a second job

About a month ago ,on my latest shopping spree,the excuse was my best friend's wedding.
To be honest as a reaction to the whole christmas shopping craziness,apart from the presents,i never buy anything extra.

Agreed, not into it.
That's why I'm so glad I now live 17 hours drive away from my entire family at this time of the year!
yay, now I do not have to participate.

The things that bother me most are;
Stupid xmas shirts
Stupid xmas hats
Stupid xmas earings and accessories
Stupid fake antlers on heads, or worse on cars
Santa photos
People who get weepy over xmas songs that are not sick, twisted or depressing
Inflatable lawn ornaments , or any lawn ornaments really

I only like dysfunctional and depressing Christmas songs, in fact I have a thread on here in music titled dysfunction and depressing Christmas songs,I was very annoyed that a thread for Christmas songs posted after my Grinch thread ended up with 5 times the contributions as mine.Too many people like real Christmas songs, it's sick.

I would really be ever so grateful if some of the posters here could also include their songs in my thread?
It's off topic, music dysfunctional and depressing Christmas songs.
here are some of the songs I posted there

I agree that Christmas, in its modern day form, can be loud and annoying and obnoxious to no end and basically a money making opportunity for the seasonal whoring of products and assorted crap-o-la, but it has it's benefits as well.

Time off of work, a reason to eat cookies and drink egg flavored alcohol, the look of wonderment on a young childs face as they open their presents, and so on.

Mainly I will give Christmas a B+ for no other reason than it brings families and loved one's close together, if only for a few days, and it does seem to lighten the mood and bring out a bit of kindness into an otherwise unkind world.

That can't be a bad thing
