    Bah humbug!

    I believe we had one of these over at @forumz. Certainly I cannot be the only person dead inside enough to absolutely hate this time of year! Jan 1st cannot come fast enough!

    I'm a bit of a Grinch too. Fortunately, my family are not into Christmas like most of the population appear to be so I don't have to faf around with gifts and shopping and big meals. I make one thing (a pie) and give one gift (an under $10 secret santa).

    I had a stint of a couple of years where I really got into Christmas. But then my ex's sisters decided to have emotional breakdowns and "you hurt me when you divorced" tantrums in the middle of my Christmas lunch and got pissy when I cracked a joke (that, in the moment, absolutely had to be cracked). NEVER AGAIN.

    I love Erin McKeown and her F*ck That! album perfectly sums up how I feel about Christmas.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    I have to join in. I freaking hate Christmas. It just can not get over fast enough.

    And cheers to the Calvin and Hobbes.

    ^ I don't have my tree up either. And I don't think I am going to this year. I feel even more ambivalent about it this year than years past. I wish I could hibernate the month of December.

    Mr Friday grew up super traditional awesome kids get so many expensive toys yadda yadda. I grew up with a broke ass single mom who did what she could, but wasn't like we were spoiled brats come Christmas. We finally compromised and I did a tacky ass white tree with bubble lights, tacky retro style ornaments, and a fugly tree topper. Perfect for me. Except this year.

    Same here. My almost sixteen year old was disappointed that the stockings weren't up, and St. Nicholas hadn't filled up his stocking with candy and a video game. We haven't even bought our tree yet. I don't think we're even going to bother.

    You know, one of my favourite songs about Christmas is all about the fights and dramas that erupt around Christmas time:

    Not feelin it this year either. I think I got it out of my system by composing music for a rock version of A Christmas Carol. LOL Between that and being freshly single (not by choice) I really couldn't be buggered to celebrate.

    I have lots of music gigs though, so that's something to look forward to.
