I like some aspects of Christmas - the decorations, the tree, the food. If I could, I would always keep a big tree in the house. It makes me happy. I like the lights and some of the movies. The music is okay but gets obnoxious after a while, LOL.
I dislike the gift giving thing because of what it's become. It's just mostly people swapping gift cards now, or giving gifts out of obligation. Honestly, I'd rather just get and give card with a baggie of candy than get a $50 gift card and give one in return. Or maybe a personalized gift like photos in a nice frame, or something practical that I was going to buy myself anyway.
I hate the mandatory parties and lunches of the workplace. Then again I work with people with whom I do NOT and would not socialize with outside of work (I'm the youngest person by 20-30 years). Sitting in a bar for a workplace "Christmas party" is totally not my idea of fun. Having those networking parties with vendors is also not fun. I don't drink so there's nothing for me to do at those parties but listen to gossip and drink watered down soda.
