I wanted to get this t-shirt but my lady loves x-mas and said there's no way :(



I never grew up celebrating it so for me it's just a season of really terrible ear worm music that you can't seem to avoid, rubbish tv & excessive expenditure.

Your feelings towards Christmas will change when the little un's here. Christmas time with your own kids is awesome. ☃️🎄🎅👍

Honestly those points can extend to the entire year. Think I’ve heard like one or two good new songs this year and TV is shite except for a handful of programmes. Though I will concede that December is especially bad for the wallet 😉

The excessive expenditure is especially needless (speaking as someone who has worked in retail for 5 years), but even persononally, I just don't see the point. It gets out of hand, and people get stressed over what would normally be something trivial. But at Christmas it's the end of the world.

I am, however, welly jelly of the Pokemon advent calendars that some of the staff here have on their desks 😤😣

😂

The MLP one I have is still super cute though 😜

Look @Teapot, the perfect shirt for you! (and yes I will disown you for buying one).

I really like Christmas even despite the hassle it causes. I like most holidays though, so I guess I'm just sentimental...
 
For me Christmas is eating dinner, getting festively merry and opening and giving some gifts. There’s a few Christmas specials I like to watch and some traditions to uphold (the Vice City/Shippuden combo) and now that Robbie Rotten gif I’ll make a yearly thing too as a tribute to Stéfan.

Some people do take things a bit too far though, I think I heard that bloody Mariah Carey song before Halloween had even had its day!
 
Before I lost my late mam my parents had a caravan set up near my Scouser brother, we would have dinner with him (whichever other brother wasn't in work near Christmas) I think last time the Scouser stayed at ours but I don't remember doing much, no ones said anything about coming or going though so it's just two single atheists in the house this Christmas which makes it mean ??? I don't know.

Look forward to my haberdashery sharing some Christmas cheer and a sort of Christmas card here closer to the day based off I don't know... goblin slayer? Otherwise I'm not sure that I'm doing anything at all
 
I like Die Hard and watching @Demelza and the rabbit open their presents. And Christmas dinner, I guess. The rest of it I can do without, really. :p
I'm not a massive lover of dinners, but on Christmas I do make the exception. I don't have loads of people to buy for, but it's still something I can do without. I don't particularly expect anything gift-wise, and I'm making a conscious effort these days to just not consume so much pointless "stuff". My Mum has a habit of just wanting to buy small, gimmicky things I can well do without, so I put my foot down this year.
