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.


I had to go through that a few years ago. I'm so sorry to hear that

(WARNING MAJOR DOWNER COMING THROUGH) i dislike most family-oriented holidays because my dad abandoned my mom and i 3 years ago and has since attempted to reinsert himself back into my life after divorcing her. i dunno, just weird having my family all strange and not together and disjointed. i generally avoid seeing my family on holidays other than halloween! also the music is terrible.

I love Christmas! It's my favorite time of year. The only thing I hate about it is the weather. Too cold for my liking

Guess you could call it a love-hate relationship.

Used to love Christmas when I was younger though (of course), but nowadays Christmas sneaks up on me every year and it ends up being just stressful. I'm always busy right before Christmas because of work and what not, and when I finally get my Christmas holiday - I have to deal with arranging where to go and buying presents (family is split all over the place). All I want to do is relax and eat good food.

But in the end it's all good, or well I actually feel more relaxed AFTER Christmas Eve.

1. The annoying advertising and marketing that sometimes comes way before the month of December.
2. The overplayed ridiculous amount of Christmas songs. (They're not all bad, but when you listen to more than one-hundred different versions of Santa's coming to Town shit get's old.)
3. The amount of ignorant people who think this is the time of year too be jolly, when you should try to be merry every time of year.
4. The extremely cold weather, and the fact it rarely snows where I live causing me to never know what snow is like.
5. People are still selfish.

There's only one reason why I hate Christmas, and that's because I get absolutely no time off work at all throughout

I do not hate the holiday, I just dislike the lies that many people want to hold on to about Santa Claus, the consumerism, the lie my told me that everyone all around the world celebrates Christmas and receives presents when that is not true, and the ones who pretend to be selfless and jolly once a year for this holiday.

I don't hate Christmas, but like a lot of other people have said, I'm getting fed up with the excessive consumerism. It seems like stores are almost constantly rotating holiday products (in the U.S.) these days; New Year's -> Valentine's -> Easter -> 4th of July -> Halloween -> Christmas in an infinite loop. I mean, we can't even make it to (let alone though) Thanksgiving without being bombarded with Christmas ads!

(I limit myself to getting one gift per person, with a lot of thought and care behind them, partially because I'm not well-off financially and partially to counter consumerism.)

I'm also no good at forcing myself to have that holiday cheer, so people who fake it aggravate me. Also the Elf on the Shelf, whose existence makes Santa's seeming omniscence superfluous.

I like the idea of Christmas, it just ends up being sad, lonely, and a missed opportunity due to lack of close friends and family. Same with every holiday.

I love Christmas. I don't like that my birthday is so close to Christmas, but I don't hate my birthday either.

There's only one thing I hate about christmas. And that's that it's pagan roots are forgotten by most people. Most people think it's a christian holiday, even though it's really not. Even though pretty much every single aspect of it is rooted in germanic paganism.

Aside from that, I have no problem with it. I don't celebrate it myself, but there's a lot of pretty decoration at the time of year, and we get several days off from work/school.
