    My SO never cared for Christmas till he met me. Last Christmas I had to force him to deal with it, he was such a scrooge. And now this Christmas he is 110% into it. Helping with wrapping the kids presents, decorating the christmas tree, he's even excited about getting me presents.
    I think an alien took over his body...lol

    This is the 3rd Christmas I've spent with my husband and not only has he never given me a gift but I also don't even get a Merry Christmas, so no, he's not into Christmas unless he's receiving gifts.

    He's like me, if we had the money and means we would love to go all out, but it has been years since we were really able to celebrate it.

    My husband likes it b/c of me and the kids, if it were up to him we would not do much, its funny to watch him on the ladder and me change my mind about the lights about 50 times LOL   I think deep down he realy like it.

    my hubby is a huge bahumbugger...but he loves his grandmothers cooking. he thinks everything is too much and that the xmas tree and decorations are stupid. his extent of helping me decorate is to lug the fake xmas tree in the house for me. and then i do the rest. my kids help with the ornaments. he does nothing else.

    It's amazing to see all the different comments on here. I am sorry to those of you whos DH's are not into Christmas. I know that can make it hard. But it's cool when the kids contribute to your DH gettin into it. That helps a little I think.

    My husband is more into Christmas now that we have children and we are establishing our own traditions! That is something he was unable to have due to the fact that his mom and dad were divorced...... Now, his oldest child, has split visitation during Christmas-but we still continue w/the tradtions we are setting-when he is w/us and when stepson is not-just to keep as much consistancy as possible for all the children....... He gets all child like in trying to find where I hid his presents and what not!!

    He hates what it's become; the spending, the traffic, the rude, cranky shoppers, the crowds, the high price limits in the name drawings.....
