I think the only thing I hate about Christmas is that it comes too fast and ends too soon. I just enjoy the holiday season overall.

What about you, mate?

For me Consumerism and the expectation to have to buy presents for everyone you know. Everything about it is a pain especially Christmas trees, its just a commercial holiday like Halloween now.

I don't hate Christmas, but there are some things I hate about the Christmas season.

For one, I loathe the majority of Christmas songs out there. There are some that I like, but most of them just annoy me. So I hate it that these lame songs are played everywhere - in malls, shops, commercials, the radio etc. Ugh.

I also hate how others think i'm a grinch just by acting normally. Its almost like your expected to be cheerful at Christmas time. I'm not overly cheerful for Christmas until about the third week of December, so for those first two weeks, I hate how people give me flack just for acting normal.

That's about it. There's nothing I hate about Christmas proper though.

I hate the materialization of Christmas but in Texas Christmas means 50 degree weather! It's a blessing compared to the 110 in the summer.

I hate that Christmas takes up about a month and a half instead of just the one day like it's supposed to. I saw Christmas decorations and Christmas candy in stores before Thanksgiving was even here.

My family forces themselves to be around each other on the holidays even though none of them can go 30 seconds without bitching and arguing amongst themselves. It's annoying and frustrating and I can't really stand it.

The only good thing that comes from Christmas, for me, is the abundance of beautiful, colorful lights. That coupled with the snow puts me at peace - otherwise I'd probably kill my family.

1. The crowded supermarkets with the overplayed christmas music.
2. Having to sink my bank account into buying presents.
3. Getting woken up at 3am by my brother and sister asking me if I've seen the presents yet.
4. Having to socialize with people.
5. Pretty much everything else haha.

It's the time of the year that just makes me go..

I don't really hate anything about it even though I don't celebrate it.

The indecently incessant Chrisrmas music.

On the other hand, I love dissapointing people by not getting them presents

I have always been bothered by Christmas, everything about it just feels wrong.
1. I came from a Christian household so I had to abide by arbitrary expectations to celebrate the birthday of a baby I wasn't even sure existed.
2. It's all about joy and love... and give me free shit.
3. All the damn specials, ALL THE DAMN SPECIALS.
4. It consumes every month around it, November is spent in anticipation of December and January is spent sad (well not me) about how it's gone.

there is my list.

I do not like the cold.
I do not like giving or receiving gifts.
I do not like the people who wants to lock me in their house.
I do not like it when the grocery store is closed.
I do not like how the internet becomes quiet.
I do not like to remember.

Well to start off I dislike pretty much any christmas song. Going into stores or listening to the radio around christmas is just asking to be annoyed by the same song sung twenty different ways by forty different artists. While I don't really mind the whole idea of giving and receiving gifts since that's the "tradition" I grew up with, as I get older I've kinda stopped seeing the point in others indulging me by buying random shit and me doing the same. Plus the fact that it happens every year sort of drains the fun from it. Why should I be merry n stuff when I just have to wait 12 months for the opportunity again. Plus the people who stand around storefronts ringing bells dressed up like the Fat Holiday Pedophile really get on my nerves. I do not care about your organization, I am not guilty that I do not care, stop waving that damn thing around before I shove it up your ass. The only good part about christmas at all is seeing family you may not see every day. Not extended family, aunts uncles n cousins but brothers and sisters that live a long way away. The only redeeming factor of the experience now that I'm not obsessed with colorful wrapping paper and shiny things is seeing those close relatives. Oh, and fuck christmas mass. Same damn thing every year. Stop it.

If I hadn't of read any of the other comments I would have totally forgotten about this. Christmas lights. I do not like them to the extent that the rest of the country apparently does. What is wrong with the quiet serenity of winter? The white snow, the black skies and the bright moon are the only lights you need to feel at peace. but some people just want to screw that up with blinking lights and giant inflatables of cartoon characters in christmas garb.
