Posted:is it just me or do other people find christmas is really annoying?

first of all i'd like to say i'm not a christ hater, i'm from a christian family. But seriously, i have decided this year that christmas is really really stupid. not the actual birth of christ part which is fine by me, but the corpratisation of christmas where every shop and every business suddenly becomes 'santas choice'. its just totally wrong for an important religious event to be used as a marketing tool by profiteering groups.

And i also find the ideal of 'giving and sharing' another rediculous marketing ploy. I mean we're encouraged to get into the christmas spirit, but do our friends who already earn 50 000 dollars a year need a new 20 dollar toaster? why do we even need a reason to buy presents for people, and why should they be just for people we already know? if we were truly into the 'spirit' wouldnt we be nice and caring ang give gifts all the time? its not like you really need that 50 cents for a phone call that people as you for.

christmas in the western world is corrupt, and i'd say its even close to sining, in my opinion

Then again, I dont see anyone but the Church complaining, seeing as we all get loads of free stuff.

Posted:I used to like Christmas when I was little cause of the presents, but now we dont give big presents anymore (too damn expensive) So now it's just about spending the day with the family while your friends are out partying and that's why I hate it. We go to church in the mornning which is fine, but why be forced to spend the day with family you see quite often, just to be nice!

Don't feel like being nice anymore.
