If you love this time of year that's great for you - but does anyone else get a little bah humbug about the whole season? We've been decorating today and my hubby has been (jokingly) calling me the grinch and scrooge all day. I go through the motions but I can't pretend to love it. Anyone else feel this way?

I absolutely love Christmas, but I hate the over-commercialization of it. I think it's ridiculous how much stress people put on themselves, unnecessarily.

Nope.  I do not like the crowds and greediness that many people exhibit but the holidays themselves I like.

Christmas always makes me cry. I guess because somewhere in my mind i still have all the magical childhood Christmas expectations... I feel so sad and disappointed every year, like something is really missing. Birthdays too. Oh well, that's what wine is for!

I love it because it makes my kids happy. Them happy = me happy. Nothing else matters.

I just hate the part of spending a ton of money!  We have such a big family and feel like we have to buy for everyone!!  Even if we spend $5-$10 a person we have about 25 to 30 people to buy for!

 Yes I hate somethings about it and get in a funk from time to time over it, there are so many expectations and if you don't get what some one asks for then you feel like a failure ?
