Which holiday do you feel is the most over-rated?

Do you think it's the holiday in December because that's the upcoming holiday?

  • Thanksgiving. I think the history is really sad, and I don't see why we would celebrate the massacre of Native Americans. I'm thankful for life's blessings every day, I don't need a holiday to think about what I'm thankful for.

  • Hmm, most of them are overrated but I'm going with Valentine's Day, or St. Patricks Day(I swear the only point is to get drunk on "green" beer).

  • Thanksgiving. I'm thankful everyday for the blessings in my life .. why do I need to spend an outrageous amount of money on food for one meal to prove it?

  • I don't think Christmas is necessarily overrated. Over-commercialized, for sure. It's hard to say the holiday that celebrates our Lord and Savior's birth is overrated. Same goes for Easter. Can't say the holiday that celebrates our Lord and Savior's glorious resurrection, conquering death and the grave is overrated. Tough act to follow,if you ask me.

  • Ooh, V Day is a good one, too, Simplicity! Another one with a troubling history.

  • I agree with Valentine's Day. You don't get a day off for it, so what's the point.

  • Christmas. I don't mind the week of Christmas, but do we really have to see the lights and gaudy decorations up in stores in early November? It is sooo commercialized now. The insanity of all the shoppers out on Black Friday is nuts!
