A simple question, please answer it:D,,(My answer) I'm looking forward to the month of December because then I get a vacation from school "because I'm not in elementary school anymore my vacation begins 2 weeks earlier:D", and I look forward to all the Christmas lights:D,, I know some of you think it's corny, but hey I live in Iceland and it's pretty dark here on the winter, so it's cozy to have things lid up with colors:D:D

I forgot how close Christmas is and then I got this warm, fuzzy feeling. Love the atmosphere of Christmas.
And Iceland is fantastic btw, I'd love to experience an Icelandic Christmas.

Not in the slightest as it will be the first Christmas I'll have without my mother. But in advanced, I hope everyone's will be splendid.

I'm kind of not, because I'm at that age where you're expected to give your friends and family presents, and I don't have any money or creativity to get them presents. Plus a month ago we sort of estranged ourselves from some of our family... I don't know how that's going to work out... So it will probably be a small Christmas. Probably the smallest I've ever had.

This is actually quite fun if you think of it that way. Do some serious brainstorming starting NOW and by Christmas you'll have fantastic gifts for everyone. I promise.

It's friggin' the 3rd of November. >_>

And no, I hate Christmas. I hate getting presents from others and I hate having to buy them for others. I murdered Santa Claus. And I'm Jewish.

I love Christmas so much, it makes me happy. I just love everything it is and if there's snow outside during Christmas it makes it amazing. The lights and the crisp cold air and the joy going around is just unimaginable. It's my favorite time of year. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Unfortunately, I joined PC on Christmas Eve. That's something I'm not too proud of.

Well you guys are a fun bunch of Grinches..X_x

Haha, sorry, I just adore Christmas time. It's so magical; the feeling, the shopping, the warm cocoa on a snowy morning, everything about it is just awesome. Plus, the approach of December means everyone will be coming home from college for two months and considering I've been bored out of my mind, this is a very good thing XD.

I'm going to work on presents come Thanksgiving time; I think some for particular friends and one for each family member will be good. I'm at the age where it's difficult to shop for, so the gifts make no difference to me :P. I just like the holiday season.

November 3rd, 2008, 07:55 PM
Yes and no.

I really could use some extra money, which I know is selfish, but I'm a broke college student and I only get $40 a week. Yeah.

On the other hand though, ugh. My boyfriend and I are total Scrooges. I hate traveling. We'll have to drive 3 hours to be with family and we'll get asked the same questions we get asked every year - "What's new with you? How is school? How is work? How's the weather been?" >.> Family time is just meh. My family is completely insane too (my boyfriend has a hard time with them, poor dear has to try his hardest) so it's really not enjoyable.

I just want to stay home with my Tony and spend Christmas together with our own traditions. I'd like to just light some candles, maybe get a very small fake tree with lights already on it (I really don't care to decorate or clean up pine needles - I spend enough of my free time cleaning as it is) and possibly play some relaxing Christmas music while snuggling in front of a fire (unfortunately, since we moved to our new apartment, we no longer have a fireplace). That's my ideal.

I love Christmas! ^_________^ And as much as I "can't wait" for it to get here, I also love the days/weeks leading up. Possibly even more than the actual day, even.

Colder weather, Christmas decorations, just the whole atmosphere is nice. Definitely my favorite holiday. :3

I actually had a weird PC-Christmasy dream a couple of nights ago that I totally forgot about until just now. XD; I was in this large city square type thing, I think it might've been Disney World somehow (I think this is because Aegis recently visited Disney and it was fresh on my mind @_@), and there were multiple stories in a building behind me, and I think one of them was a cafe called "The Mod Lounge" XD; There was garland and tinsel and frosted windows, but that's really all I remember of it.

The only OTHER detail is that I remember walking through the center and having some random salesman guy try to sell me some kind of food. *shrug* That's boring though.

ANYWAY I TOTALLY DERAILED. @_@; Bottom line, I love Christmas time. <3 Best time of the year. :>

XD!

I'm a huge fan of Christmas, but just the other day I walked into the grocery store and dear Arceus, already blasting "HAVE A HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS :DDDDD!" over and over again with Christmas music. Needless to say, I didn't like it THIS early. >_<

I love the vibe of Christmas though, chilly (well, Florida doesn't get very chilly) and log burning smell in the air. (Better mixed with salt air. :D) The closer it comes to Christmas the more I'll warm up to it, but now? Just not in the best mood for it. XD But yeah, love palm trees in lights. XD

I am not really looking forward to Christmas, because I know what to expect, and all the advertising gets on my mind.

However, I love the presents, and celebrating Jesus, so that is a big plus.

No not really, my family make it a chore every time, my dad just gets grumpy and moans constantly about our broken family and he has his xmas dinner in a basement with the drunken B&B landlord, my mum and brother want to have a secluded christmas away from the rest of the family, my Nan on my dad's side has it on her own because all her sons are abroad and her daughter has cut off from everyone and all my aunts and uncles on my mums side have it with their mum. They are all having their own seperate time together and I have to pick out of 4 who to go with and I hate it; I used to love christmas now it just sucks.

Christmas!? I love Christmas with a passion! No, not just the presents and things; those I could go without. It's just the 'feeling', if you will. I know some of you are probably rolling your eyes at my right now, but it's the truth! There's nothing like sitting around the fireplace on Christmas Eve with your family, watching snow fall outside your window. Curling up into a snug little blanket beside the Christmas tree. I just find there's no other time of year like it.

And don't even get me started on the TV Christmas specials. I could watch those for hours XD; (My favorite would have to be that stop-animation Rudolph one) They're, undoubtedly, one of my favorites things about Christmas.

Not really. The presents aren't half of what they used to be. And christmas means a big family dinner, which is always agonisingly awkward. <<

I guess the only good bit about it is the food.

Umm... no. It's a little to early to be getting excited about Christmas see as it's only the start of November and we haven't gotten past Thanksgiving. It's a little sad that some stores have already brought out their Christmas stuff. I was at Sears a couple of weeks ago and they had taken down their Halloween stuff before the holiday had arrived and were setting up all the Christmas stuff.

My liking of the festive holiday has deteriorated over the last couple of years. It's turned into something filled with more selfishness than anything else and the whole point of Christmas is to share and to treat everyone with love. I dunno. Maybe I'm becoming too old and serious, but it seems that people have lost the true point of Christmas.

I don't mind getting two and a half weeks off school though.

Just make a list of things you need, then a list of things you want, then give your parents the list with the things you want, then in Mars give them the other list:D

It's my favorite holiday, with the lights, egg nog, gifts, Christmas Tree, food, and family time. Shame that it's once a year, and the last month to say even more. Man do I love Christmas. Waking up to it, gathering around the Christmas tree with hot chocolate, spending time with my family as I unwrap my gifts. It's a good feeling.

Oh fiddlesticks, I did it again.
I hope to get a Wii this year. And I hope to buy a gift for myself, like my mom does. I love this holiday.

First I'll have to get through Thanksgiving feasty food time day, and that's my second favorite holiday, but I'll save that for another thread.

This christmas party should be good though...as long as it's at the old family holiday house I'll be looking foward to that part :>

I'm looking forward to playing Twisted Sister's Christmas album at full volume all through Christmas and driving everyone in the neighbourhood insane, but other than that, not really. Christmas is usually split up over the course of a week for me, as my relatives drop in at different times, but they're all coming before Christmas Day this year, so I'll get all my presents on that day...which will actually make it quite dull. I have to work on the 27th, as well, and possibly Boxing Day. Meh. Christmas has lost its charm for me as I've gotten older.

the bitter end.

The whole "lead up" to Christmas leaves a warm little thrum in my chest. It's just magical and we're so lucky to have it. This will be my third Christmas with my girlfriend and our last Christmas until we're married :)

And yea, I love not just Christmas, but the whole season of it up until New Years (besides the truckload of shop at Macy's ads, lol). It's great huddling in the house with my family, baking cookies and having them with hot chocolate, and kicking back for a movie.

The present part of it seems to get less significant every year, but maybe it's just because of my loss of interest in video games and the completion of my LEGO collection, the only two kinds of items I ever asked for lol

I love the atmosphere of Christmas, all the lights and happy people, and holiday pay :DD Once people get over their initial holiday stress they become really giving and friendly so I love working with them even more.

However I dread Christmas day. It'll be the first Christmas without my mother and grandparents, and my (step)dad will be joining his family out of state, so I'll be alone for that day. It shouldn't be that bad though, I'll just sleep in and hang out at home until my room mate gets back from her parents house that night. Maybe I'll even cook myself a little Christmas dinner XD;

I understand, it's really hard to try to do things the same when someone's missing. Especially when it's something as big and celebrated as Christmas and there are reminders everywhere. Fortunately, people become very warm during the holidays so it's a little easier to find comfort sometimes :)

I remember the Christmas the year my dad past away, it was the worst/best Christmas of my life,,,,

It sucked because the Christams before I had ended up in a hospital on Christmas eve,
so my last Christmas with him was ruined, and the Christmas after he died sucked because he wasn't there,

But those were one of the best Christmas "In a materialistic way", I got so many presents, and from reletives I didn't even know.

I'm in the same boat as you with this. I lost my mother last April and this will be the first Christmas I am spending without her (as I stated in a previous reply that got no reply). I'm really dreading the day as it continues to approach rapidly. That and Thanksgiving are going to very strange without her. I'm glad, however, that last Christmas, we finally did it the way she always wanted to and opened presents after we ate breakfast and got everything settled. Usually my brothers woke up at 4:00 (naturally) and rushed to see what presents we got (along with waking me up). I'm starting to wonder what it will be like this time.

Aww, you just take it easy and have a wonderful morning with your family, I would suggest you all plan to wake up together to make it be like last Christmas.

No, I'm not.

Parents are spending WAYY too much money on presents this year, even with the economy the way it is and there is a chance they will lose their jobs. And then we'll be screwed. Yet, they don't care. Seeing the gifts given away so carelessly is going to piss me off. 8(

I also don't like getting presents. I do not like people wasting time and money on me.

Also, when the family is all together, all they really focus on is the little kids who are so greedy. 8( My cousins got a pool table and much much more last year and still complained about how they "didn't get enough."

I'm in the same boat as you with this. I lost my mother last April and this will be the first Christmas I am spending without her (as I stated in a previous reply that got no reply). I'm really dreading the day as it continues to approach rapidly. That and Thanksgiving are going to very strange without her. I'm glad, however, that last Christmas, we finally did it the way she always wanted to and opened presents after we ate breakfast and got everything settled. Usually my brothers woke up at 4:00 (naturally) and rushed to see what presents we got (along with waking me up). I'm starting to wonder what it will be like this time.

;; sorry to hear it. At least you'll have some fond memories from last year. It's definitely going to be hard, but I think honoring her way of doing things will help.
You can always join our merry band of lonely people on PC on Christmas Day, as well X3

I guess I'm looking forward to Christmas, although this year we have to go down to my aunt and uncles house in New Jersey....Which is guaranteed to suck. As for the actual holiday, I love it! Seriously, who doesn't like giving and getting gifts? =P

Christmas has never been exciting for me, because my birthday is on the 10th of December a lot of my family would either screw me over by buying me one present(that was no more expensive than the presents they got anyone else in my family) that they class as a Birthday and Christmas presant, or buy one good presant for my birthday and one boring presant for Christmas saying they allready spent a lot of money on me and that it's not fair on other members of my family.

I don't know what to give or what I want to get for Christmas, but I'm looking forward to it in more ways than one. It's going to be my largest Christmas ever, but as usual, I'm probably going to spend the day with my family or something. I love the atmosphere of that time of the day and for some reason this year my heart is bubbling with anticipation. =)

Our family is going through some hard times financially right now (and I'm in college and thus, flat broke), so it's going to be a pretty small Christmas. But that really isn't the important thing, it's the family, the friends, the food, the atmosphere that I'm looking forward to. Of course, almost a month off from school and the blasted cold Minnesota winter doesn't hurt at all.

Am I looking forward to Christmas? I don't know, really. I'm still in the mindset that Christmas should be 2384723948 years away, not just a month and a week or so. It's kind of like I'm not in tune with reality with that. But ahhh I need to buy six trillion gifts for friends and family, and I only have a dollar in spare change that I'll probably use to buy lunch for Friday [/broke]. I need to scrap up money for them, since I want their Christmas to be even more enjoyable.

So I guess, but I'm a bit concerned about others' gifts. ://

Thing is, it's going to be harder this year. My Nanna passed away on the 31st January 2008. It'll be the first Christmas without her. This time last year, Christmas time anyway, she was in hospital...and now, she won't be here with us.

Man, talking about it now gets me teary eyed...

I never know what I want for Christmas until like a couple of weeks before it comes up but this year I decided earlier than usual that I wanted an iPod touch. Hopefully I do end up getting one. I need to think of something to get my family too.

I'm definitely looking forward to Christmas this year. Not because of the day itself, but because of winter break. An entire month of no school or schoolwork. I can spend my time on the computer, playing games (I've had an itching to play Devil May Cry recently), and doing other things. It also means next semester will be that much closer. And even though I missed out with my luck and I have another 8am class, it's still going to be ten times better because I learned from my mistakes from this semester. I just want to get away from this current semester because of all of that.

That, and did I mention a whole month off school?

I love Christmas! It's that time of year where its cold and I have to rely on staying inside. It's the time of year where you spend time with your family and socialize for once, and its the time of year where you can reminisce the past, present, and future, and it's also the time of your where you get presents from your family and friends, then school starts :(. Sad how I can't find any good reason to enjoy this year's Christmas aside from no school; I guess I don't what to get (Then again, Christmas isn't about just the presents).Thinking about, I might get a good Christmas, I just don't have the Christmas spirit yet.

I'm looking forward to Christmas, mostly. The nice decorations and festive lights are quite enjoyable, and there's a huge buzz about the holidays. Not to mention, snow will be making it's entry where I live around Christmastime, which I'm definitely looking forward to. I love having the two full weeks off of school during Christmas; who doesn't? I actually really enjoy the family time; it's totally different than regular family time. We all get this joyous "feeling" inside of us, excited about this special day. I actually really like the TV Christmas specials. XD;

There's a little twist to this Christmas though. My mom and dad's relationship hasn't been going well, so I'm very afraid that this coming Christmas simply will not be what it used to. It won't be nearly as enjoyable knowing that there is an unsteady relationship in my family, and I really don't want a harsh argument to break up during the holidays.

Yes and no.

1) I have to stay over at my parent's house.
2) I have to celebrate Christmas. (do not want)
3) My boyfriend is going abroad and I want to go too, but I'm not invited because it's a family visit.
4) I don't like Christmasy food.
5) I don't like lying to my little brother - or any child - about santa.
6) My parents always fight at Christmas.
7) It'll be so noisy with all the drunks I'll be suprised if I ever sleep. (I like to sleep)

As for the good things:

1) I get my 'supply' at Christmas.
2) Trying really hard here.... hm... *thinks* ... I might get some extra cash.
3) Holiday from college.

I live in Iceland were it snows every winter, but if it rains just before Christmas and the snow goes away and is away on the 24th, then we call it a red Christmas, and white if there is snow on the 24th.


But anyway it almost always snows before Christmas, and during it.

Usually I am looking forward to it but I was kind of forced to make a quicky x-mas list and they really have no good video games on the market atm so I am not really looking forward to the games I get.

I am looking forward to seeing my family and having a huge breakfast though.:)

Okay, can't you just sit down and talk with them, and tell them you want to try to celebrate Christmas, I mean, I assume your parents are buddhist, and I thought buddhist were so open about other religions, so if they are, then maybe there is a small possibility that you can celebrate Christmas.

I always look forward to christmas because it only comes once a year and you get gifts and you can sit at home with a nice fire watching christmas specials.

Why wouldn't I be looking forward to Christmas? It's something to look forward to. I'll get to spend time with the family, get some new stuff and be able to just relax.

Haha, lolz, well actually my mom got me Platinum today, but she's gonna give me the thing for X-Mas since it has my 360 on it and she doesn't want me to know about it. But I know for sure I'm getting it since I've been begging for it.

Oh cool deal. You guys open on Christmas Eve? I heard people do that but it just doesn't seem like it'd be worth sacrifice waking up early in the morning to find all the presents.

How exactly does your Xmas Eve night go?

Angela
December 22nd, 2008, 04:42 PM
Dinner at 6, then opening the gifts after we have cleaned up:D, thats probably it:D.

So Iceland is supposedly covered in grass right? Or so the saying goes.

But in your pics there's snow everywhere :D I wish we had snow down here in the New Zealand.

Oh sweety there is grass under the snow, in the summer it's green, and it's white on the winter, there is snow now;).

It's like the best conditions all year round! Are there any other traditions? Like variations of Santa Claus?

We have 13 santa clauses on Iceland;), they all have a different name, and all put some treads in ones shoe, that one keeps in the window shelf between the 11th and 24th, this days santa gave me a chocolate bar:D

So how is Christmas in New Zealand

Ripper
December 22nd, 2008, 06:05 PM
Hot :D

It's the middle of Summer so you end up spending a lot of your time at the beach...
Otherwise it's your typical, pseudo-American Christmas.

Angela
December 22nd, 2008, 07:26 PM
LOl, so you get to go to the beach during Christmas?

Ripper
December 22nd, 2008, 07:42 PM
Yeah, it's what we call a 'Kiwi Christmas' :P

I've always wanted to celebrate Christmas in the snow though, it seems more fitting. Santa gets too hot with his red suit down here hehe.

Gosh...I'm really different this year... During my wee years, i was so excited about Christmas that I can hardly sleep. But now, I'm hardly excited at all. Is it crazy or what? Somebody please tell me!! *sob*

Yes, especially in terms of the food, gifts and family. I have no idea what I would get this Christmas, though I am looking forward to receiving it.

Not at all to be honest with you. This has been the worst year I have ever had and having christmas is just going to bring back the memories and times that I really just don't want to think about. I wish I could just completely skip it and blank this year because I really don't want to remember it. I know what I'm having for christmas and there are going to be two people missing on that day for me that I really am not happy about. If you had asked me this at the start of the year, I would have been bouncing and thinking it would be the best christmas/year ever, but now I'm just completely against it.

Hopefully next year I'll be back to normal again, because I really do love christmas normally.

No, I hate Christmas. Everything about it needs to go down in a well filled with gasoline then caught on fire.

Just kidding. Seriously, I could be more excited. I don't want anything this year except a laptop. :o

I actually don't enjoy Christmas that much.. It has never been a big deal in my family, when I wish it is.. I don't get many presents, either.

Yes. Christmas is my favorite holiday and not only because of the presents. Just the general family time and food is what makes Christmas, Christmas.
