As an antidote to the Merry Christmas post, I would like to wish all those that are fed up with this overly-sentimental, ridiculously expensive, commercial based claptrap time of year a great big...


Bah Humbug.

Spirit of Christmas still alive in the Philippines. Very little present giving. Huge extended family and community eat in. Real carol singing and no alteration to TV schedules and life generally goes on as normal. However, the build up lasts 4 months.

It's the break to routine that I cannot take: no papers, pub closed tonight.

I could not agree more.

I’ve been emptied £.

I am thinking about living next year like A Christmas Carol in reverse.

I’ve been giving too much to my family, work and wife. Now it’s time for me. 😂

A happy ignoring Christmas to all... 366 days 'til the next one, though it will only be about 300 until we start getting bombarded with commercial encouragement to spend all our f****** money on it... again.

Serious question.

Did the "Bag Humbug" people who don't like Christmas have disappointing or unhappy Christmases as children?

Nothing but good memories of Christmas as a child. My bah humbugness only set in in adult life. Don't celebrate or acknowledge it whatsoever.

I have no choice. They're all through in the room watching Strictly Come Dancing and I'm here typing this. I think if the TV broke down we'd have a better time, or I would.

But really, as I get older I find the whole commercial aspect and media coverage of Christmas thoroughly distasteful.

Maybe I'll become a Christian and attend church. That is, after all, the real meaning of the whole business.

Might have been once upon a time. One of my news feeds had an article a couple of days ago where some woman was twittering her delight at all the presents she had bought and stacked under (on top of?) her xmas tree. I believe it was somewhere in the region of a couple of thousand. It's not a celebration of anything other than conspicuous consumption nowadays... a competition to be bigger and more expensive than last year, and get noticed on social media... or even better, TV

Christmas has become a disease for some, akin to OCD

Your last paragraph is interesting.

I attend Mass every Sunday and occasionally during the week as well. We get a good turnout of between 200 and 300 on Sunday, the midweek Mass is a dozen or so. Yet last night the Chirldrens Mass was standing room only in a church which seats 600, there was a 'midnight' Mass at 8.30 which was the same.

I think deep down a lot of people do crave something of the real meaning of Christmas. Not necessarily the religious aspect in itself but the message and the hopefulness of that message. Of course they might just like the theatre of the Catholic Christmas and enjoy the nice smells and the hymns they recognise but I think it goes deeper than that.

Personally I enjoy seeing other people's faces on Christmas Day when they like a gift more than I am bothered about gifts myself. I got some nice things today but a personalised mug from my daughter with '10 things I love about you' was my favourite by a mile. She obviously didn't write the list because she's 2 but 'I love you because you are so hardworking in a job you don't like just for me' came from the heart of her Mum. The mug probably cost a fiver but the message is priceless for me. The 2 of us have just gone a wee stroll together to escape the madness for 10 minutes and I couldn't be happier. That's Christmas imo.

Early 40's now and with each year that comes I hate Christmas more.

I've just started a thread in the Dugout about this year's debacle.

Likewise, some of my best childhood memories focus around Christmas.
