I don't know about you guys, but I find the Holiday season soooo anoying. My wife sees holiday cheer, family time, and so on and so on. I see nothing but $$$ for everyone but me! Is anyone there with me on this? I also hate it because my sons b-day is on 12/20, and my younger bro's b-day is on 12/6. So I have to buy my little bro something for both times, and my little guys is in the habit of going to Chuck-e-cheese every b-day... that shLt cost like 200.00 or more for a b-day party. I gotta get mom and dad something nice, My wife expects something nice.... and so on and so on. I swear each f---ing chirstmas runs me like 3-5 grand.
The other thing that drives me nuts is all the lame ass shopping! I hate shopping, and I have seeing all the in-laws! They all, well most of them drive me nuts! I have to put on a happy face and smile all day long. My wife just went over the schedual for the next 3 weeks and all it is every weekend is family and BS! eeerrrr! am I the only one who can't stand this crap?

I don't like X-mas, but at the same time I don't mind all the free sh1t ya get. I guess I'm neutral.

Oh yea, the food is also good.
What outweighs the good, however, is the dam music on the stations like u said, everyone trying to get me to decorate, and I hate the emphasis on presents. I know its the thought that counts, but I feel fcking guilty when I open up a present and I dont like it and i look up to see the smile on the persons face who gave it to me. Its like im going to hell for thinking its a shtty gift. Id rather not get anything, or just get gift cards/money. I also hate when people tell me to surprise them with gifts. Just tell me what the FCK you want and ill buy it. Its better in the long run because you will use it more and will save money by not having to buy it themselves.
