    Feel free to put your bitchy comments here about Xmas, what it does to (one hopes are) ordinarily sane people while they go about trying single-handedly to prop up the retail industry, Xmas bell-ringers, 24-hour Xmas music or anything else that bugs you about the 'joyus' season!
    {note: please keep religion out of it}


    I'll start:

    I wish the people who stock grocery stores would STOP putting the 'seasonal' baking goods in a cute new display....which happens to be 8 aisles over from the everyday baking goods.There's nothing I like better than trying to find peppermint extract and white chocolate baking bars and wondering what part of the store would I hide it in if I were a shelf-stocker..

    I agree, Aristo!
    Besides, hasn't Burl Ives' song been around now much longer than he was alive??

    On this note: I wish the people who install sound systems for fast food places worked for local theater and such venues...there in not one place in Wendy's or Burger King or MickeyDs that you can NOT hear the super-loud musak!!

    I wish I didn't work in Wal-Mart with these shitty ass customers during the Holiday season. I've discovered their are such things as dumbass questions and it takes every part of me not to smack the piss out of these raging hillbillys icon_evil.gif

    This from a man who spent years dancing to irritating Irish jigs.


    Including one called 'King of the Fairies,' although technically it's a hornpipe.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI'm repulsed by it all, I wish it would all go away.


    This. I find it quite offensive, especially since it now seems to start earlier and earlier every year. Some local stores had displays going up in the beginning of October!

    i'm tired of christians bitching about the war on christmas when all other people are doing is pointing out they're fed up with your holiday shoved down our throats. further, christmas is not about family, giving, or any of that crap. it's the birth of your savior for christ's sake. it's a solemn and significant holiday. it has nothing to do with presents, santa claus, family dinners, etc. you're all so angry about the war on christmas that you can't even see you're disgracing the point of the holiday to make it about yourself.

    That they celebrate all sort of other holidays around the same time ... I mean really ... New Years.? Why can't they celebrate that in July when it is actually nice and warm outside at midnight?

    Please, please, please try adding a few more fucking cashiers at your stores!!! Some of us do feel the need to buy normal everyday items during this time of the year, and it would be oh so nice if I didn't have to wait in super long lines for the privilege of spending my money at your store. Better yet, designate separate lanes for the people that are spending money they don't have on gifts for people that don't need/want/appreciate them.

    Wow. I haven't been to town in a couple of weeks. I guess I have enough canned food on hand to hold out for another month. As long as I don't turn on the TV, I'm golden.

    I am one of the people that actually likes this song. I can't stand "Little Drummer Boy" or most Christmas music. Give me original Christmas music instead of the "Silent Night" etc.

    Most Christmas music is very depressing.

    I find it creepy that insignificant, novelty songs of my day are now electronically remixed into the revered icons of commercialized Christmas. Does say much about the present or future.

    I have few things to bitch about.. except parking places at the mall and then you make it a successful trip by going at the right time. I say, enjoy the season and put up with, what might be inconveniences otherwise!

    Happy Holidays!

    I didn't say I was staying in the house. I'm just not going anywhere near town until the craziness is over. That leaves most of the country, you know.

    We did away with gift giving years ago-made the Holidays a hell of a lot better right off the bat.
    I love Christmas always have...
    My mother died on December the 19th back in '85.Yeah not pretty.And to be perfectly honest I have been in a completely shitty mood of late due to working with psychotic assholes.
    But guess what? I slap a f****** smile on my face, remind myself to be a little more patient, try to be compassionate[didn't say I succeeded all the time , I said 'I try'] count the many many blessings I have in my life and always think back to the kids I saw in Peru playing soccer with a rolled up piece of duct tape with no shoes who for all intents and purposes were living in what can only be described as an upscale cardboard box.And they were happy.When I think of that I realize I have not one single thing in my life to complain about ever.....and that as long as I have my sense of humour those that don't like me can f*** right off.I got more that like me..
    God I feel so much better now.A couple of Horse Tranquilizers in my egg nog and I'm fine.

    Stop calling the celebration of the Winter Solstice, Christ morning. Jesus was born during the summer but celebrating it then would melt your pretty little dreams of a White Christmas. If you did move the day to sometime in the summer you could cum on your boyfriend's chest and that could serve as your white Christ mas. Anyway, even if you wanted to celebrate the Christ mas on the 25 of December, get with the program Christians, there should be no gift giving until January 6, when the Wise Guys showed up and gave the gifts, incense and that other stuff.

    Bah Humbug
