If the spirit of Christmas is spending time with loved ones then I certainly do embrace that.

However, I do not exchange gifts (mutual agreements) or worship a deity or any of the other things that Christmas is often also associated with. In those cases I might be considered a scrooge.

My wife and I spend little attention to this "holiday". We try to do something for the kids, but not presents. Presents are soon forgotten and lost. Get to take the kiddies out for some fun? They will remember that.

I used to get into all of the decorations, but after the year that my daughter's dog, the JAWS OF DEATH ate my entire collection of ornaments I had been collecting for over 20 years, I just stopped.

They were all on the tree, which she knocked over, what didn't break in the fall, she spent the rest of the night finishing off. They were homemade ornaments my mom made, some she had brought with her from France after WWII, I had started collecting special limited edition ornaments since the birth of each of my children, etc... They all had a meaning and memory attached. I was going to pass them on to my girls when they grew up.

Oh well.

I was going to send you a present but it would never reach you, it would be destroyed in some natural disaster or some other calamity .

I'm not a Christian so I don't celebrate Christmas. I usually go into work on Christmas day just for the overtime.

HATE Christmas. Too stressful, too much money. Thanksgiving is so much better, and is really what Christmas should be about.

Xmas has never been been my favorite. I always preferred Thanksgiving because at least I got to visit with cousins, aunts, and uncles. No presents and silliness, just a nice day together.

The only thing I find fun about xmas is spending time with family playing games, and also it's fun when there are little kids around. I'm not religious at all but I enjoy some of the xmas movies such as It's a Wonderful life, and Christmas Story.


Also my dad was a mall Santa for years, he thought it was the best job ever.

This year, my wife asked the neighbors' grand-daughters if they would rather have presents or an afternoon with her. They both wanted the afternoon with her. Not a bad choice, since they will both get to go to lunch and a movie, and my wife will make it fun for them.

Lunch and a movie sounds like rather a nice present!

In response to the original question, Ho, Ho, Ho ... Yes, I am, right down to the singing (well, making a noise anyway) in the congregation whilst my children contribute a rather better sound to the Choir. Tree up, Lights On, Presents Wrapped and Mince Pie / Sherry left out for Santa - there's nothing like a proper bit of Christmas Spirit!
