I love the lights, the decorations, and wonderful foods from different traditions. We live full time so I can’t decorate because of storage being limited. I get to enjoy all decorations and lights of the area in. A wonderful bonus is we get to be with family now. We couldn’t when we were raising our family due to work schedules and distance.

Maybe if all the Christmas stuff didn’t come out before Halloween it would mean more.

The reason for the season is always with me, so it’s just another day for me personally. But so long as there are grandkids to spoil, I always look forward to the joy I see in their faces.

Christmas is, God is with us, He will help us and Strengthen us. It’s not about Presents

I like that this is the time of the year that has been set aside to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Savior of the world, but for the most part, that is ignored. The rest of it (commercialism, drugs, drinking,crime, ect.) makes it a disgrace to the reason for the season! Besides that, you can’t get anything done because from Dec. 15th. until Jan.2nd. or 3rd. 95% of the people are BRAIN DEAD, LOL!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEARF!!!

Ditto. I couldn’t vote. As you said it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus for many of us that is the reason for the season. We celebrate the gift giving, etc for the grandkids, many of who still believe in Santa. It’s a joy to see them so excited.

Christmas, or any season, is what YOU make of it. Don’t worry about other people and what they do or don’t celebrate.

You can keep the Christmas holidays. Just stress and individuals putting value on gifts that was given to them, no consideration of why a particular gift was given. So gift cards were born. Sad we have made that turn in the road. I’d rather have a plate of homemade cookies then the {bleeped} gift card or a gift.

I look forward to the decorations and family gatherings. I detest the commercialism and the crime/theft which always escalates during the holidays.

Totally agree

Commercialism and pettiness ruins this season. The true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus is practically ignored except for The church service on Christmas Eve.

The reason I still look forward to this holiday is we are celebrating a birth in Christianity. At 77 I realize that things don’t mean as much to me anymore and understand why we should continue to celebrate this event. Jesus was born and we all need to realize the reason for the season!

We like the decorations and spirit “Tis the Season”, but the wife goes crazy buying presents for the family and friends, and creates enormous pressure to get it all purchased, wrapped, and done before Christmas Day. I’m glad when it’s over and can begin to relax again. I like the week between Christmas and New Years.

Nice to see the decorations but sad to see the need. Salvation Army, local food bank, endless “donate now” TV commercials.
