Yes and no.Yes because it will be the first Christmas in my new house.No because as I am not working I don't know how I will get presents for my kids :(. I am working part time but I think that will just cover the bills and it's only temporary for 3 weeks.

I'm currently out of work and not looking forward to the pressure of having to buy gifts. I have a 10 year old so I have to deal with the Xmas ritual whether I want to or not.

Hi, I am not keen on xmas either, I prefer easter, it's more lay back. Just going off the subject for a moment, what's your obsession with POOP. I just went to your blogg, and I had a laugh. LOL.

Christmas Tree - Merry Christmas tree with lights and tinsel and a star.
I don't enjoy Christmas any more. I hate the commercialization, the greed, the fighting over possessions. Christmas these days represents to me the opposite of what Christ represents. It's a high-pressure, pointless exercise in keeping up with the Joneses, but I keep playing because I feel guilty if I don't.

I agree with you. Christmas lost the special touch with all of the greed and commercialization.

I think I have really lost interest in Christmas over the years. But I am looking forward to seeing people's faces as they get their presents.

santa - christmas is almost here
I love the season of christmas/new year. Having children makes its all a lot more fun though (and more expensive.) 2 of my children are already writing letters to santa. We also love to go to church and sing christmas carols. I think the reason for the season is forgotten a lot nowdays.

To me it doesn't seem as though it is not far away, but it will be here before we know it! I am too excited about my daughters wedding in February, so maybe Christmas won't be as exciting this year!

Christmas is celebrated differently in every culture/country. I am excited for this year's Christmas because I get to spend it with my family in my home country. I was living abroad where Christmas is just like any other day. It just makes it a bit special because you get to experience gift-giving. But it is truly different in my home country where you will hear Christmas songs, see a lot of Christmas decorations where you really feel the spirit of Christmas. In my home country, Christmas is really a big deal. Out of all the holidays we have, Christmas is the most celebrated. People really celebrate christmas to to fullest because more than half of the population here are Catholic that's why we truly celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, who saved mankind. That's why I am so excited and is looking forward to Christmas.
