I hate Christmas.

The whole damned country goes batshit crazy for two months.

Everybody runs around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to finished their Christmas to do lists.

Heaven help you if you get in the way of a soccer mom driving a 5,000 lbs SUV.

She'll run your ass over.

My favorite day of the year is Jan. 2, when all this nonsense is over.

We do not exchange gifts, only for the children. It is all too commercial. When the Christmas music starts the day after Thanksgiving is when CDs and LPs and RTR tapes get a lot of play

Oh God don't remind me.

Every time the Little Drummer Boy with that goddamned "A-rump a bum bum"
comes on I feel like I'm going to go off like Samuel Jackson in "Pulp Fiction".

I'll send 50 bucks a piece to the grandkids.

And this year I think I might make a special gift of a Grand to my daughter to help her out with her Tattoo removing because I want to encourage that worthwhile project. Still mulling that one over.

It is on the Day but not necessarily the 28 days preceding.:)

LMAO!!!

It's so commercial though. We should go back to the Yule Log, 7 days and all the ale you can drink! :)

I try to keep presents to kids but I tend to include the folks who grew up around me, so that 34 year old nephew still gets something.

I play my own 'xmas' music for the most part.

You see that last one is from AFP? Koch propaganda $ at work! Good singer, but the lyrics got pretty lame as the thing dragged on.

I could write a better one, but they'd have to pay. If I sell out, it won't be for cheap!

I quit the madness long ago. Christmas is now good food, family, a nice tree, and self medication.

Yep but not necessarily in that order. :)
