I personally am not a fan of christmas. Some of the reasons are personal (i.e. family shit) but also I find the materialistic aspects of it really disgusting.
And I hate visiting my family at xmas due to travel costs. They live in FL, and its fricking expensive to fly to FL.
Plus not being a christian, the holiday is relatively meaningless to me. I don't celebrate ramadan, or passover, or dwali....why would I celebrate christmas?
Anyway, who else is not a fan of this time of year?
I don't get why people think being a christian has anything to do with enjoying christmas. Its basically a secular holiday now.
Do it your own way, you will enjoy it more. Stop putting stress on yourself, realize presents are for kids, not adults and learn to avoid the things that make it tedious. Don't travel to family, never understood why people make long distance trips. Start your own traditions.
It's my favorite time of year.
