Is it just me or is anyone else fed up with Christmas already?

Kill joy to the world!

Personally, I'm fed up with Easter, although re-enactments in the Plippines can be quite distracting!

I'm never fed up with Christmas, but I'm disgusted with the crass commercialism that surrounds it.

I despise the extra traffic on the streets,the lack of parking spaces,the crowded shops,the incessant Christmas musak,the infinite different images of Santa,the pressure of choosing presents,the politics of family,the pre-occupation with food and drink,the plight of all the animals reared inhumanely that will ultimately be wasted,the increase in refuse,the greetings cards,the waste of electricity,the naff TV shows,the requirement to appear jolly,carol singers knocking on the door,drunks puking in the streets............

You seem to equate x-mas with Death so just Rattle some ornaments and get in the spirit.

RE: Fed up with Christmas?

Dope, my apologies, but this somehow seems fitting:

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas Time in the NUSE....ring a ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas Day...

I don't know when the commercialism starts over there, last year I saw an ad for Walgreens (a pharmacy/drugstore/variety store in the US) that had some Christmas decor in it in AUGUST, for pete's sake.

It's the commericialism of the holiday that steals the joy.
