Who is counting down the holidays, just can't wait for them all to be over!!

ME for 1!!! I found myself exclaiming earlier, "one down, two to go"!! I despise this time of year, too much fake merriment!!

  • I hate this time of year because I cannot fulfill my kids desires for what they want for Christmas. I also hate this time of year for many other reasons. I do try to make the most of it but it is more of a burden then a Joy

  • i dont agree
    sure ive had bad stuff happen to me, loved ones are no longer with us but my attitude is not to dwell on the bad stuff and smile!

  • I only concern myself with me and my family. I don't buy into "fake" merriment. I am happy because I am happy. My kids love this time of year, the music, baking, and decorations. For me it is about family and food, and decorating and music, not materialistic things. I did not shop today, nor do I intend too. I love this time of year because it makes me happy and it is quality time spent with my family. Yesterday we had food, and great company with a roaring fire, it was so nice and relaxing.

  • I don't agree. I don't stress if I got all the material things.
    Its about family and friends.
    If you don't get it this year you can always get it later...

  • I love the holidays.. all the family gathers together. We celebrate Christmas for it's true Biblical meaning.. Not all the fake* hype.
