Are you relieved now that Christmas is over?

I totally am. Life is beginning to return back to normal now..No more Christmas music on the majority of radio stations (YAY! It gets so old, doesn't it?), no more having to worry about cooking or buying gifts or returning gifts etc. Christmas will be 'totally' over for me after this weekend, after I get done exchanging gifts with two of my good buds. Are you relieved that Christmas is over??

Although it isn't technically over yet, as we still have today before everything goes back to normal tomorrow, I am so relieved that it is almost over. Aside from all the spending, there have been some drama in and around the house. So, I would really appreciate it if the kids are back in school, and that I could get my head back to working!

In a lot of wys yes. I am very relieved. I am glad aI just have to worry about how we are going to pay for everything. The biggest stress of Christmas for me is all the money that is spent. Thigs are so expensive these days and I am a father of 3, two of them being teenagers. I do like getting together with familyl and friends though, that is the enjoyable part of the holiday.

Somehow, yes. I will finally be able to get over my 'holiday sadness'. Family-type holidays just don't get to me that well, you know. People become depressed, or something. Pardon me for saying these useless things. Haha. But of course I'm happy that many people are happy during holidays. And yeah, no more Christmas songs everywhere. Yay!

Well, for me, I am not totally relieved that it is over. I just happen to like the feeling of an approaching holiday season. But I guess in a way relieved of the busy schedule. I am looking forward to a fruitful year ahead.

Whether to accept or not we should put back all in our memory and face the new horizon, whether our Christmas was good or bad should be forget. Although it was ordinary day for me because I'm away from my family... see you around

Yes, very much relieved since expenses and hustle will be lessen, its been a very great season anyway but at least mall and markets will not be very crowded now due to holiday rush, few weeks ago its been very freaky going out because even the streets are jam-packed with vehicles and people doing their last minute shopping.

Yes, I am relieved that Christmas is over. I'm tired of hearing people caroling with the same songs all over again. It's annoying when someone goes over your house and does some caroling even if Christmas is over. I experienced that many times. Someone said that he will do caroling even if it is December 28. I am also happy that life will go back to normal.

Yes, I definitely am happy that Christmas is over. Christmas is always a stressful time. It's not always the most pleasant time of the year. So, I'm pretty much always happy when it's over.

Well I am not so glad that the Christmas holidays are almost over but then a part of me is. I love the magic of Christmas. The beautiful lights, decorations, the peace and love that is in much more abundance at that time of year than any other. I love Christmas. At the same time, as soon as New Years is over, the decorations are coming down to be boxed and stored yet for another year. I actually want to un-decorate the tree yesterday but my Dad states to leave it up until after New Years. Fair enough. I am a very busy person. The downtime with the holidays has been nice, quiet and I have appreciated the relaxation. However, duties are calling. In that sense I am ready to bring in the New year and put the celebrations behind us until next time. I guess my feelings are mixed. Unlike yourself, I feel that I did not get to experience as much Christmas Music as I usually do. Maybe today I can get some of that in to close the year. I am making paper today so would be a nice addition to add to the crafty ambiance. May peace, love, good health and friends as well as prosperity and success be with you in 2011 and always!

YES! Everyone around starting to act normal again instead of rushing all the time. I don't celebrate Christmas but almost feel bad for for some of those who actually do, listening to how miserable they seem to be running around doing shopping, etc. Some of them totally make it sound is if it were some hassle, unwanted duty, etc. Wasn't it supposed to be FUN?

I totally am glad it is so over too!!!Every time I try to have a good Christmas it never works out like I want it to be, something always goes wrong especially financially, I can never get the things that I wanted to get my daughter or husband or mother or father, and it's a bummer!! I am also glad because I don't want to cook anymore either!! So I agree I'm so glad it is over!!!! Have a good day!!
