When you see those Christmas commercials where all the families/friends are gathering for the holidays and everyone is so happy/cheerful, what are your thoughts?

It's unrealistic - no one has perfect.  They're trying to sell something.

eh....it's a commercial.  I don't put a lot of emphasis on commercials.  To be honest, I try to DVR everything so that I can forward through the commercials.

Since my family was disfunctional before I was even born, I never have seen them as realistic.

I mean seriously those who are miserable during the holidays are those having to deal with family.

Wrestling with depression now is skewing my view on them I think

Anything positive and however unrealistic helps to see things from a different side, something to strive for. I appreciate the little feel good moments that are shown.

Depends on my mood.  I would say most of the time I get tearful because I miss my Mother and would really like to spend a Christmas with her.
