I absolutely love everything about Christmas except for the Christmas music..
...the only exception would be "Carol of the Bells". xD
They play it way too early and then it goes on for what seems like forever and on practically every station.

Just like the title says. Even if you don't hate christmas, is there something about christmas you hate?


I cannot say I hate anything about the season. I do tend to dislike, however, how a lot of people get angry, mean, disgruntled, and just overall mean spirited during a time when we should be celebrating being alive. Whatever our religion, or lack there of, the season is supposed to be one of joy and remembrance. I just wish people would stop letting the small things bother them to the point they just get upset and angry all of the time.

I don't hate Christmas at all! It's the most wonderful time of the year. Oh boy oh boy Christmas time.

I love Christmas for the most part, but yeah there are a few things I don't like about it.

Even though I'm not this year, working in retail this time of year is hell. It pretty much kills Christmas for you, and you just want it to be over with ASAP.

It's busy pretty much everywhere. So even if you're not shopping for gifts, it's just a pain in the ass to do anything.

Christmas music. I'm all for getting into the spirt of things, but damn most Christmas music is depressing to listen to.

I have season affect disorder - so I'm generally depressed at Christmas time. I celebrate Yule - it means I made it halfway through the winter and now the sun is coming back, days getting longer. I might survive another year. I grew up with a abusive family and Christmas was just another opportunity for my mother to tell me how much she hated me and what a horrible thing it was she had to waste money on me. My gifts (if I got any) were new socks and underwear. Then everyone at school would be bragging about what they got and would not believe me when I told them. Bleh.

However as an adult I've had some halfway decent Christmas due mainly to the awesome wonderful guy I married - who has been through much of the same. So we tend to hole up with a ton a good movies, pizza, booze and each other

I get frustrated & more depressed with all the music and commercial bombardment and the assumption that of course we all have wonderful, perfect families who love each other and get all goochy-goo at Christmas. Pet peeve: people who spend it with their wonderful family who has presents and a big celebration - and they bitch about how much trouble it is! Appreciate what you have - not all of us have it.

It's more that I don't care about it than having any real measure of dislike. It's kind of hard to care and enjoy it when you've spent half of your life living below the poverty line, and when you know people who don't feel obligated to wait for a certain time of the year to offer assistance out of the goodness of their heart. You can be Saint Nicholas any day of the year, and you can celebrate the day of Christ's birth (whatever day that might actually be) whenever you want to as well; it's such a dishonest and misleading holiday.

I might look upon the holiday more favorably if people decide that Jesus and Santa are the same person. After all, can it really just be a coincidence that two figures with similar qualities share the same day?

They've been playing the same stupid Christmas songs for over six decades, so it's not surprising that most people are sick of them...the real puzzle is why there are still enough people who like them that the songs still oversaturate the radio and every public location.

Christmas just isn't the same when you're older at least I think.
It was magical when I was younger but it sort of died after wards.

I enjoy time with my family though.

The only thing I don't like is pretending I'm straight to my family, lol. (Not all of them, but my mother's side.) They don't know I've been married for over 2 years because they wouldn't be able to handle it.

I hate Christmas this year because my granddad died 4 weeks ago and we normally spend xmas day with him so it will be a strange and sad day for us.

It's IMPOSSIBLE to hate Christmas. I'm usually full tsundere all year but that one time of year, that one month where all the hate and anger just seems to disappear from the atmosphere, I turn into the nicest person I can be. I'm not a fan of it because of the presents, even though it is awesome to get free stuff, I'm a fan of it because the world lights up and become so festive you just can't hate it. All the hard work people do to get those lights up is worth it in the end because you can't help but smile when someone admires the work you did. All the money spent on stuff you think is useless crap is priceless compared to the smile of a child opening his presents under the tree. Christmas is about giving and being with family and friends. Charities go all out on the donations.

And let's not forget about the music and TV specials! You just CAN'T hate them! It's literally the most wonderful time of the year! All the joy and cheer created in this time is wonderful. Anyone that hates this stuff I can see in hell. I'm sorry but it's true, you clearly don't see Christmas like it should be seen. All the legends and myths make the holiday so much more jolly and fun. It's not about the gifts and free stuff. We do that in honor of Saint Nicholas and not for any other reason. Christmas is the one time a year where family and friends get to be together and truly be happy. Remember back in WWI when both sides stopped firing to celebrate the holiday? That is the power of Christmas. It's got enough power to stop most of a war for two days.

You don't have to be cheerful, there are always bad days despite the season but, you just can't hate Christmas.
