I really hate the holidays.
I really don't enjoy the holiday season. Every year it's the same old thing.


People calling and saying that they "know I don't really not believe in god" and all the other usual fanfare.


I hate fighting with Christians about pointless stuff that will never get anywhere or lead to anything of value.


I just want to live my life in peace.


I just wanted to rant briefly and get that off my chest. Whew. All better now.

Just saying, I read it. Keep ranting if you need to vent, we are with you here.

I'm with you too, this year. My husband died last xmas morning, and I expect all kinds of calls I don't want to deal with.

I think I am going to tell everyone I am going on a trip and won't be here. That should do it.

RE: I really hate the holidays.
Sorry Dom...the first year and all the holidays and anniversaries and such is so damn hard after you lose someone.

Take care of yourself...love your idea of tomorrow being all about you.

Why not really take a trip over Christmas? Treat yourself to a night or two in a nice hotel or B&B. Take a good book and relax in a change of scenery.

RE: I really hate the holidays.
I fuckin dig the holidays man.

Sure I dislike canoodling with all the family and the prayer bullshit and the shopping..., But I... love... the... holidays?

I do, I really do. I get in a better mood then my usually disagreeable self. The only unavoidable part was the shopping, and while I still have to partake me and the wife have decided to go cheap with each other thus reducing the amount of shopping/stress. The only person we go nuts for is our kid, and it's easier since we can go out together.

Family events are still a pain, but I am willing to make concessions for my wife. I prefer Halloween but Presentree is right up there.

I thought about it, but I'd rather be home with my dogs. Plus it would be hard to get someone to care for them at that time.

I really enjoy my place though, and it has everything I want. I had my fill of hotel rooms, I have travelled a lot. After a while hotel rooms get really old.

RE: I really hate the holidays.
the holidays here are some of the most pleasant times of the year. It's one of the only times I can fell truly at peace. Nobody really cares about much, nobody pester me with trivial things, nobody is causing drama or fights that I have to resolve. The atmosphere is nice as is the music and company.

It's the one time of year where the only beverage I consume is rum and eggnog. I also like the tree. So full of light a colour. Oh and the weather is nice. Blowing snowstorms make everyone bunker in for awhile and provide ideal sleeping conditions.

RE: I really hate the holidays.
I'm weird with the holidays. There are brief moments when I look around; I see the lights and hear the jingles and feel the cold, and the cinematic part of my brain is engorged and I take it all in as thought it were a movie of some sort.

Then I snap back to reality, realize it's the holidays, and just wanna shoot myself in the face.

The season's drinking is well underway here at Mordhaus.
