I like the egg nog, apple cider and food.

Don't care about the presents much since I'm old.

[QUOTE="Kage1"]What I was going to say pretty much.

chessmaster1989

I agree it's sad how people use the excuse of lets have this day be special to be nice and caring to people/family. That should be almost an everyday thing, not a ******* holiday once a year.

Also **** mom and dads who brain wash their kids about santa, that is just sick.

You got a lot of coal as a kid didn't you?

No, common sense kicked in at an early age. How does santa get in a house without a chimney???

I figured out Santa wasn't real pretty early on, but it didn't make Christmas any less fun.

Well your parents are just crap liars then. Obviously they could have just said he can do the same thing he does to get back out the chimney (finger on the nose thing) to get in through windows or doors to deliver presents to children who don't have a chimney. Or the parents could make a thing of leaving a door or window unlocked (until the kid goes to bed) so Santa could get in. There are plenty of ways to make the story fit any family, you just have to adapt to the situation.

I hate it. And not in a bah-humbug kinda way.

If it was one day, it would be fine. Fun, even.

But it's a fvcking month-and-a-half.:evil:

They started doing that mid October here. It's way too f*cking early. By the time Christmas is actually here I'm burned out on it.

I dont really practice religion, but it just seems to be a fun time of the year. Most people are in good spiritis, and I get some nice vacation, meals, and visits with the family out of it.

I only like Christmas because I get to spend time with family members I don't see everday. That is it.

Can't stand the stupid flurry of commercials that come right after (and sometimes before) halloween telling me to go buy a bunch of sh*t I don't need, the cheesy Christmas music, the terrible movies, The PC people telling me to say Happy Holidays or I'm an insensitive dumb f*ck, drunk douchebags on the road, and..the list goes on...

I used to love it as a kid but now I don' t really feel that excited any more. And besides that I have to go to my grandparents' place for 6 days which is in a small village on top of a mountain and there is no internet there...

The pagan traditions are pretty cool, the religious side isn't to bad either.

I like Christmas. I'm not religious so it has no significance for me in that regard, but it's good to get together with family and I always have lots of nice food.

I love it! Spicy mushroom soup and hot eggs, dressing up the Yule stick, putting stockings in the fireplace, the little lines of Korean children peeking curiously through the window blinds. Christmas is truly a wondrous time.

It's a great time to see family, drink good beer, eat good food, and be nostalgic.

Of course, since our baby will be born right before Christmas this year, I'm sure we'll start some new traditions.

I love Christmas, it brings back a ton of great memories from when I was a kid, and even better we've got our own kids now and seeing them being so happy and enjoying everything so much is by far the best part. I love going and picking out a tree, bringing it home and decorating it, and watching the presents accumulating under it as my wife drags me out to the mall again and again and again :D We've got Rudolph and Frosty and the Little Drummer Boy on DVD and we watch those movies while sipping eggnog on the nights leading up to Christmas Eve...it's an awesome time of the year.

There are various sources

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Claus#Influence_of_Germanic_paganism_and_folklore

Numerous parallels have been drawn between Santa Claus and the figure ofOdin, a major god amongst theGermanic peoplesprior to theirChristianization. Since many of these elements are unrelated to Christianity, there are theories regarding thepaganorigins of various customs of the holiday stemming from areas where the Germanic peoples were Christianized and retained elements of their indigenous traditions, surviving in various forms into modern depictions of Santa Claus

I hate it because ever since I was around 9 I got nothing but a sweater or two... and the rest of my family got kick ass presents. I know it isn't supposed to be about presents, but it was about presents for my family and since I didn't get any presents... it sucked. You dig?

Its well documented that the church moved jesus's birth date back to coincide with the pre-existing pagan festival, don't be disingenuous.
