    I don't care about Christmas. Just some religious holiday about a religion few people in our country care about.

    Goodness me I hate Christmas. I really do despise the commercialism, and [as a Catholic] resent how the meaning has been sucked out of it by our secular society.

    I know most people won't believe me, but I truly would be happy to wake up to a lump of coal and an orange like our grandparents most likely did.

    I would quite like a new tattoo, thanks.

    Oh, and maybe a remote controlled helicopter to fly around the office

    Putting a question mark at then of that is the absolute height of douchbaggery! I've not been paying attention to 'Tzarchasms' finances.

    Portable DVD player as a main present. Then just little things on top of that.

    Can't we get Halloween, Harvest, All Saints Day, and Advent out of the way before we start on Christmas?

    But, if I have to answer: I just want a flight to get me home at Christmas. Maybe, if I'm lucky, I can get an iTunes voucher so I'll have music on my iPod in Spain. Or perhaps a bit of money to burn in the Università shop when I'm back here for exams.

    I agree with you that Christmas has become too commercialised (although this article might interest you, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/special_r...tmas/37276.stm, for the record I'm not a Pagan ).

    I think Christmas has many meanings to many different people. There is no law that you have to buy into the commercialised aspects of Christmas. To me Christmas is about being with family and eating a little too much. I like giving gifts to my family more than I like receiving them! It's a time of happiness in what would otherwise be a dark winter. If you prefer to celebrate Christmas in a more traditional, Christian way then there is nothing stopping you . (And as a side note, my mam still puts oranges in our stockings :p:.)

    I didn't read the entire article, but I know Christmas isn't exclusively a Christian holiday

    You're right, there's certainly no laws, but one would find it difficult to avoid it. What bothers me the most is the hype, and inevitable anti-climax of Christmas. I went to some restaurant a while ago, in August, and there was a board informing people to start booking Christmas parties :confused:

    I'm also fed up with reading endless dreary articles in January moaning about how 'tight' the month is. Well don't spend excessive amounts at Christmas for spoilt children who don't deserve rewarding (most of the time)!

    Anyway, that's my brief rant over.

    Those helicopters are awesome, but they can take a while to get the hang of. My sister flew my uncle's into my dad, who promptly flew off into a major tantrum :p:

    I don't really know what I want, I never know (though they always seem to pick awesome presents), I imagine I'll get lots of little things like books and a nintento game or something

    I don't really expect much, I got a nice sum for my birthday, they lent me the money for my New Zealand trip, I think I have emptied their savings pot :p:
