It's the few times when I get to see my family and I like making them smile with cookies and gifts I give them, but it's also super busy, so the two days of celebration are awesome, just not the preparation for it.

I mostly dislike it.

The days are too dark. people have this wierd hippocracy of being nice now and when its over being absolute pricks. It gets boring seeing the same themes and television shows year after year.  I hate how expensive and hard it is to travel this time of year. I also dislike the fucking commericalism, seriously the holiday season does not start before halloween it should start on thaksgiving( if you celebrate it) and end on New years day.

The only good thing about christmas is christmas specials of tv programmes.

The presents, cards and decorations are a waste of time and money.

Considering I don't really follow my Christian religion (or care about it), I've come to realize that I've been actually been more so celebrating kwanza all these years. Which is the same thing as Christmas, but it revolves more around the gift giving and togetherness aspect and not the birth of Jesus. owo

I'm a Norse Pagan/Asatruar so I celebrate Yule, or the Winter Solstice. I still celebrate Christmas but only for my family's sake.

Personally I'm not a fan of it. I love the Winter season but it's hard to get in the spirit of a holiday I was wrongfully arrested on. :/

I use to be in the Christmas spirit, but recently, everything just seem so commercial... as if the day lost its meaning. It just seems like everyone is just celebrating it like its their birthday and for the sales... Nothing more. It's sad when you think about it....

I both don't honestly celebrate it, and I'm pretty indifferent toward it. I'd go into details as to why but it seems others have already, so I will spare you more story.

I have the strangest sensation whenever Christmas begins to peak its head. it's not Christmas spirit, but more like "It happens when it happens". Hell, i'm currently in that mood right now, AND CHRISTMAS EVE IS TOMORROW!!

I don't know. I'm usually super excited for Christmas. But now it just seems like any other day. I don't know why, maybe it's because I am actually having to do more stuff, like when I'm working or having to go to college, it's just all kind of laying down on my shoulders. And now I feel like I've lost the holiday spirit.

Christmas used to feel like the best day ever. These days, it's just kind of like every other day, though maybe it's because everyone in my family sans me has been lacking Christmas spirit these past few years.

I don't celebrate Christmas.  I'm an Atheist with a capital A.  However I do enjoy the spirit of the season and celebrate the winter solstice.  I essentially put up a white tree with blue light, decorate my home with ice and winter themes, and still exchange gifts.  There's just zero religious iconography in my place.

It'd certainly feel more like Christmas if there were snow here... first year in a very long time where that happened.

Not really feeling it this year, but it's still my favorite season. Music, family, food and drink... Stuffing a pine tree into the living room. Winter. It's all good.

Eating, drinking, family party, free shit? WHOO!

Traffic, last minute shopping, family and friends who can't tell me what they want, crazy people at work, and CHRISTMAS SONGS THAT NEVER FUCKING STOP PLAYING ON REPEAT?

KILL ME.

I consider myself lucky to work at a place where we have no music on the loudspeakers, otherwise the nonstop Christmas music for hours on end would make me slit my own wrists with a box cutter.

I like Christmas, but my family's always kept it about family. We don't usually decorate until a week before Christmas, and we don't go all out on presents. Food on the other hand...
I guess my parents are pretty similar to Charlie Brown and Linus from the Christmas special.

Personally, despite not being a Christian and whatnot, I still love Christmas to death, I see it as a time of love and cheer, spending a day with your family, tis the season of giving.

I feel it is far too commercialized and the holiday has been reduced to just another marketing ploy with the actual meaning being put on the back burner, so to speak.

Used to love it as a kid, but ever since my family broke apart it's been a godawful nightmare for me every year. I'm fine with just the days off and a Christmas bonus at work, but Santa can drop from a rooftop for all I care.

I don't really celebrate it. It's not a big thing over here given that a lot of people are Muslim where I live, and im an atheist so I don't have much religious reason to celebrate it.

Commercialism isn't as big here either.

I would like to experience it in its full splendour though, the amount of treats to scarf down and more importantly, feed a significant other with sounds enticing :3

On Christmas 2011 I was stabbed once in the throat and three times in the back while guarding a building for the US Army in North Carolina. I came close to dying. So yeah, I'm not a fan.

Thankfully no, it wasn't a especially large knife. But the scar hurts in the cold sometimes.

Christmas is nice and all, but being an atheist during the holiday season can really put a damper on my ability to enjoy it. I honestly prefer the non religious side of it so much more. Of course, even then, anxiety only lets me enjoy so much of it.

For me, I have been blessed to have had plenty of Christmas pasts where things have been wonderful that I feel like I'm good.  I still believe in the season, but I'm exhausted with the madness of the commercialism.  I give mostly subscriptions here to friends and people who have been really special to me through the year and I try to do something special for my close friends ... my family is mostly gone this year, though Pop and I have not been celebrating Christmas together since Mom was still around.  My Big Sister has her crazy family which most of them are out of touch with me and the older aunts and uncles have their own families.  So, it's just me.
