My dislike of xmas is all the wrapping i have to do, i mean i start off well, excited for it, by the end of it all i am tired, i have scissor hands and also awaiting the kiddos to be asleep so me andMr Mushwin can bring everything down....and we are waiting and waiting til the kids are asleep! lol

My like is of course seeing kids, family happy with gifts and also i don't have to cook on xmas day! by the time it's over i am one tired Mushwin lol

    My least favorite thing, this gonna sound really bad, but it's actually buying gifts for others because I don't have a very big budget and I'm trying to save as much as possible for Pax next year, first convention btw. I'm also not sure what I'm buying will make people happy.

    Definitely my favorite thing is seeing people be happy and caring towards others, complete strangers included. I just wish we could be like that more often then just once a year. It's also nice to see you back @Mushwin.

    cold, relatives, exams least favourite

    First, since its in winter I have memories of being around the city and freezing.

    Second, I hate remembering who to send my best wishes for christmas and meeting all those family members who remain silent all the year, you never meet them outside christmas, the same family members that have always some petty comment to say.

    And yes, I have college exams early january so I'll have to keep studying even during holidays.

    gift are favourite obv.

    I just want to see my parents, my sister and my girlfriend and spend christmas together. nothing fancy.

    For the start I love being cold, I have a fan on in winter in a cold room when I sleep

    I only hate one thing in christmas and its all the work you have to do for a holiday

    I dislike the pressure of “the more expensive gift the better” - it makes me really anxious as I have a very limited budget. I also dislike losing that sense of joy and wonder on Christmas I had as a kid...now it’s just another day battling depression.

    I love making other people happy and opening presents, and having a Christmas tree is nice too.

    Good: Being off work.

    Bad: Going back to work.

    The constant repeats of the SAME CHRISTMAS SONGS remixed and redone by about 30 different artists, excessive heat, lots of dumb questions really get on my nerves, but that's Australian liquor retail at Christmas.

    The paychecks for all the extra hours I have to put in are pretty good, though.

    I dislike never knowing what to get people, like I want to get them something but I never know what so I always end up feeling like my gift just isnt good enough

    Favorite thing is the time off. It's nice having that break at the end of the year

    Human interaction.

    Favourite thing is the christmas themed nights out. Also meeting up on boxing day for a meal and monopoly is class.

    Where do I start with dislikes. The fact its advertised mid october always irritated me. Also the bother of getting loads of presents and having to go round to all the houses to drop them off.

    Working retail, so I came to hate pretty much the whole Christmas package. :(


    Buuuut I love christmas/winter scented candles, cookies and "All I want for Christmas" by Mariah Carey. :'D

    My favorite thing about Christmas is food, decoration.

    🎄

    My least favorite thing about Christmas is snow and Christmas movies, I hate them.

    I was violently ill last Christmas so I couldn't go visiting anyone and no-one could visit us.

    It was the best Christmas ever!

    Food is the only good thing.


    And a constant reminder that my mother does not love me and does not care about me.
