I'm an atheist and Christmas is my second favourite holiday after Thanksgiving.

This is probably not quite the same but actually there's one public holiday I don't care too much about. It's the midsummer fest. Originally a pagan celebration, it was later Christianized, but I don't think meny people think about that Christian side of that weekend. (At least I don't.) For many people it's just a three-day weekend during which you drink a lot and go to your cottage on the shore of a lake if you have one. My family doesn't have a cottage so in that sense it isn't special.

Yep, it's a good weekend for socializing but there are many other good weekends in the summer anyway. As a lazy guy, I usually dedicate that weekend's evenings every second summer only for watching football Euro or World Cup.

Still, as it's a puclic holiday on Friday, I like it. Not that it really has affected on me very much but once I'll get a permanent job, for sure I want that public holiday to stay. And of course, it will stay.

I don't celebrate the religious aspects, but considering Christianity stole traditions from pagan religions, I don't feel bad about adopting my own traditions. I have a tree, give and receive presents and have a big dinner with family. I actually love Christian music, even the religious music.

As for Christmas, I don't celebrate it. My family is not Christian and we're Asians, so... It only became a deal at all when I started dating my boyfriend (who's Christian).

Yeah it kind of pisses me off. It was much better when it didn't cost me anything and everybody in sight was throwing gifts at me

Now it's just all unmet expectations and a painful reminder that I'm not a kid anymore

Eating turkey for three straight days is good though

It's still only for a few days. The mods can just keep his name on the list perpetually since it looks like he's never gonna leave it.

Amen to Freakyman being gone.

Christmas only annoys me when I see the rich spoiled 13's-Early 20's get amazing presents and are ungrateful about it. Not all of us are getting a payed off mustang or a new ipad each Christmas.

The giving part of Christmas has become way more fun for me, now that I can actually afford decent gifts my family will enjoy, instead of corny homemade cards . Don't get me wrong homemade cards are great but families truly appreciate $ for what they want.

Lenders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.
