    What the heck is the matter with ya'll? Don't you know it's your time to consume? Step up to the feeding trough and get ready for Black Friday. Surely you need a new sander and a new curling iron for your sweetie.

    You have to be cracked in the friggin head to go out shopping on Black Friday... :ahhh:
    I really don't care if the deals are great....it's not worth it...the traffic...the check out lines and the ignorant shoppers that I end up telling off.

    Amen Gamma. I view Christmas as an inconvenience, akin to snow and ice on the roadways. I don't do it myself, but tolerate it in others. I like the lights though, and I use several led ropes to light the many sets of steps in my home to prevent falls.

    That's awesome. The wife and I trade gifts, but we are getting more simple about it every year. We got it so that the family thing is a dinner and spending time rather than worrying about gifts. I started hating the holiday before we simplified. I see no reason for undue stress.

    My wife was like you . . . hated the holidays . . . giving the big ol' middle finger to the whole Christmas commercialism was the best thing . . . now she truly enjoys getting together with family and friends and just enjoying the season.

    sort of mind boggling that people can turn what should be a relatively "fun" event, into some hair pulling, nail biting, frazzled thing. I also like to spend the dark evenings of December driving around looking at the many houses clad in sparkling lights. I'm not so big on the weird inflatable things, but lights are groovy.

    My wife is awesome about the holidays. My ex wife was evil about them (and everything else). Her bad childhood experience with holidays manifested as outbursts and pressure to have everything perfect at XMass. I think I still have a hangup/hangover from that, but I'm getting better.

    My stepson is gonna be 20 a month after Christmas. He just wants money. Mrs Flatbed and I are working on weening the family off of the gift thing. Just for the kids and each adult brings one gift for a fun game.
