Hard Christmas time

posted by coolsome on - last edited - Viewed by 697 users

This will be my first ever Christmas with out my Grandma and its really hard and I know there are a lot of members who have lost someone this past year. So I thought I should make a thread where we could support and or vent our feelings about Christmas when everyone is all :D for the holiday and its hard to show your sad or depressed when ppl are psyched for it.

  • I don't have any idea how my Christmas is going to go. Without my mom around, my dad's decided that we're doing no decorating and that he doesn't want to do any gift giving this year, so I'm likely to only get something from my grandma, while my family won't be giving my grandparents anything in return this year, unless I can talk my dad into it. There's a chance we'll be having dinner at my grandparents' house as usual this year, but I really won't know anything until it comes closer.

    Of course, before we get to that, there's the hurdle of Thanksgiving. We've been invited to dinner with my sister's boyfriend's family, which includes his sister, who I didn't exactly get along with in high school, so this ought to be interesting.

    To me the epitome of this is the gradual renaming of Christmas into X-mas. They're even trying to take the very name out of it. (that or they're trying to emulate how you'd say Christmas with an extremely heavy New Zealand accent :p)

    it is a common myth that xmas is a way to take christ out of christmas.

    even then, you shouldn't let how others celebrate a holiday effect how you celebrate it.

  • Answer me this: What do YOU think Christmas is truly about? Presents or Christ?

  • Christmas for me is spending time with family who I don't get to see nearly enough during the darkest and dreariest time of year and having a good time with food and entertainment. It's also about taking care of those who are in need as much as possible. Giving time and money to those in need is important to me. Getting gifts is fun, but I have more joy giving gifts to others.

    idk. If it's all about getting free stuff for somebody, it's not that big of a deal to me because it has little bearing on what I'm going to do. I personally don't think Christ is essential in celebrating this, but if folks make him the main figure of their celebration, that's fine as well.

    It's about death.

    Also, you're being kinda redundant with presents and cash because often they end up being one and the same.

  • everytime i see this thread title i think of like, spending time in jail on christmas. like the sam and max christmas special.

  • I think Christmas is about disappointment.

    Just some guy 2000 years ago who suggested that people could be nice to each other once in a while. Don't worry, they killed him for it.
