What Makes Your Christmas ☺

  1. For me as grewing up I was alway taught it better to give to those less fortunate than me..but knowing that family close friends and loved ones are happy that more than makes my day ☺

  2. Having my family with me. Watching the excitement on my two boys faces...its all i need. Xxx
     
  3. I used to be quite a religious person, so for me it was all about celebrating the birth of Jesus and spending time with family.
    Fast forward several years and I lost my faith, my son is a grown adult and family just want me as a taxi driver as I don't drink, so I've become to hate Christmas and just see it as commercialised and greedy.
     
  4. We're Pagans, and our local Pagan group has a Winter Solstice ceremony outdoors, so we don't celebrate xmas as such. We welcome the rebirth of the sun and the promise of longer days; it's a time for celebrating with friends and family. Totally agree that it has become over-commercialised, sad to see how many people put themselves into debt just for one day.

  5. I always used to look forward to Xmas as a child as it meant either (year about) travelling to Scotland to see one set of grandparents or to Tromsø to see the others for a Norwegian Christmas.

    As I've grown older and my grandparents have been dying, it's now the case that I go either to my brothers or, with the pup(s), have it at home, on my own, and go to a local restaurant that I know the people in reasonably well, and they give me a big box of meat for the pup (last year 'twas pups plural).

    I don't particularly enjoy the celebrations and I understand that the event is mainly for children. Sometimes I wonder if perhaps it's solely an event for the purposes of keeping retailers in business(!).

    As an uncle I get to spoil my nephews and nieces rotten and at the same time manage to be happy that I don't have them of my own. My two brothers kids get their Xmas pressies about a week before Xmas and I make sure that they've been wrapped and I fly up and down the same day from London to Scotland.
