What do you think of Christmas? It’s the time of year when everyone should be happy. But it just seems to me that the joy of Christmas does not reach me here in Co. Kerry.

I just don't know why. It’s everything about it. In Ireland there seems to be this big competition about who can put up the best decoration. Well I guess it’s the same everywhere. Just look at the topic "Fake or Real" The bigger the tree the better. Has everyone forgotten the real meaning Christmas?

Does anyone else feel like me?

Kind Regards,
Jeremiah Teahan

i love the holiday season and the feelings of relaxation that come with being out of school for a few weeks...  i'd hate it if there was no x-mas spirit around here...love this time of year...tis the season to be jolly..

I agree! I love Christmas!

I love the mood that it puts you in... really relaxed.

We must not ever forget the true meaning of Christmas though. The day Christ Jesus was born!

On a semi-related topic...here in the Seattle metro area, a school district (quite a big one in fact...26,000 students) BANNED all Christmas related items last year. Now if this isn't unConstitutional, I don't know what is. Due to a large outcry, the ban was withdrawn...The whole thing was sickening.

And Delta777-XXX is right, we must not forget what Christmas is really about...

Nope, sorry, I don't feel like you!!!   
I'm Jewish but my mom was Lutheran before she converted so we sort of celebrated it with presents and a tree and all. I figure that since it's become so commercialized that I might as well indulge in that type of "Christmas Spirit." Now we sort of mesh it together with Hanukkah, but this year it won't matter b/c we'll be out of the country for both of them.

I think the whole idea of giving and having family gatherings and just plain having a good time around Christmas and the new year is just fine.

Christmas should be whatever your family decides to make of it.

I never said I did not lile Christmas but what I said was the crazy commercial side of it like who can put up the best decorations. People in Ireland spend hours driving along looking at peoples Christmas decorations . It drives me mad . Again today my parents bought a new set! For what???????

I never meant to say I did not like Christmas!

That is the best part of the holidays. Watching christmas vacation with Chevy Chase. I enjoy the christmas season, mainly because of the ambience, and I love the cold weather. Also, it helps knowing that my birthday is just 6 days before christmas.

I found it odd reading the "fake v. real" thread about how people bring in proffesional decorators for their trees. I mean come on! Why would you need some one to decorate your tree for you? Those are great examples of how people are just trying to be better then others. I enjoy hanging all of our decorations with my family. It adds more to the christmas feeling of being with family.

The one thing I don't like abotu here in California is the warm winters. When I lived in Chicago years ago we would get many feet of snow. That felt like christams. In London it would rarely snow, but at least in December it would be dark by 4:00pm. When it was dark in teh afternoon you knew chrstmas time was near. Here in CA it neve snows, its not even very cold. I can still walk around in a T-shirt. It just really doesn'f feel like christmas time yet.

Christmas is not a big deal for me. I enjoy Christmas Eve, and Christmas Morning, but the days leading up to it don't do anything for me. I hate how the retail business pushes things so fast. I mean if they had their way, Christmas decorations would be up the day after Halloween, and in some stores (Macy's in Santa Monica, CA - GUILTY) they do (or have in the past). It's real pathetic.

HELLO???? There's this little holiday before Christmas called THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!

Of course now it's "oh but it's the *Holiday* season." Barf, and give me a break. Suddenly Thanksgiving is now part of the "holiday" season, therefore people need to have Christmas decorations up in November? It's all about selling things. It's so lame. On top of that you feel the pressure to buy buy buy spend spend spend.

The commercialization is HORRIBLE and overdone.
