I have contracted the not-so-rare Bah Humbug virus.
No kids around this year, family and friends aren't gonna be here...Hell, I didnt even buy any presents.
This flies in the face of the holiday spirit, but oh well.
Anyone else got the bug??

OK Flamers, warm up the season with your snide and rude remarks!! Flame On!

P.S.: Merry Christmas I guess.

Quite frankly, I have too.

I don't care much / at all for christmas anymore. Just an excuse for money.

I think most people I've spoken to can't stand Christmas. It's capitalism in its basest form. But it's for the kids really isn't it? As a kid I loved Christmas and it was really hard getting to sleep at night while waiting to open all those presents. Now that I'm older I just can't wait for it to be over so I can get back on my computer.

Its another excuse to get drunk and eat a lot. Normally I would buy gifts for the family, and friends, but this year I moved across the country, and am broke so I don't have to buy them presents. Though now I have to appease a GF with expensive tastes, and my family I don't see very often, and had no idea what to buy for them. I got 1 gift for sure that I bought for my self, 200 from the parents, and possibly a few others, I'll know in the morning. The best part is my birthday is merely 31 days away so I can get my new computer, cell phone and PDA when they are in brand new stock, and marked down to sell after the Christmas rush. Gotta love Robbie Burns day Very Happy

Old, Grumpy and it's not even part of my religion.

I don't mind though, it's for the kids to have fun and a chance for the family to get together.

26, just the gf and me this morning (she's currently stuffing the duck* whilst i play on teh computer <3) will go down the pub later whilst our dinner cooks, then do the family thing tomorrow.

christmas is a laugh, and everybody chruning out the same old "it's capitalism in it's basest form" malarky should cheer the hell up. or drink more. or both.


PS. i'm drunk and able to type normally. go me!

Aye, me 2, sat at home, as i do pretty much every night bored sh**less. Ive spent more time at my computer over these hols that i do in 2 weeks, xmas sucks when everyone but you goes to see their family *grumble* i just figure sitting here involves less awkward silences Rolling Eyes Rather lookin forward to returning to work! The only one ive ever wanted to be back at and it doesnt have overtime, bastards.
Ohwell, new year is gonna be good (if not i demand a refund on this holiday period)

Mixed emotions, really. No work until Jan 8 is pretty nice. I really don't care to partake in "holiday festivities" too much.

Now, if there are festivities just for the sake of having fun, then I'm all for it.

I did, however, get a bottle of Maker's from a friend. That was nice.
