Why is it that every year I have to have this Christmas nonsense broadcast constantly. It makes me sick to my stomach. Respectful worthwhile festivals like Eid aren't shoved in my face all the time despite the fact I would much rather celebrate them than Christmas.

All people do on Christmas in Britain is buy stuff they don't need, slaughter our forrests and drink and eat until they pass out. It makes me sick to my stomach, especially when it's broadcast in November.

Anyone else share my hate for this ridiculous childish festival?

Someone clearly never got a Playstation for their Christmas as a child.

I think that the commercialisation of Christmas is killing it a bit, personally I think Christmas tree should be up on the 1st of December at the earlier; some places have had tree up since late October and by the time in gets to December you get sick of it.

I think you're being a bit dramatic saying forests are been slaughtered, if you are really concerned about that looked into deforestation in Amazon or something..

I personally enjoy drinking and getting merry and spending time with my family.

Not sure why it would make you sick to your stomach to be honest, just don't celebrate it if you hate it that much!

The Eid point is a bit void because this isn't a muslim country so it's to be expected, whereas Britain is historically christian.

You can choose to celebrate Christmas or choose not to, its simple. For the majority in this country they choose to.

A percentage do not celebrate Christmas because they want to celebrate the birth of Jesus (which even some Muslims do by the way as he is revered) but just to have a break from work and give friends/family a gift to show their love or thanks, enjoy special food and generally have a great time.

For me, Jesus is the reason for the season

Love the festivity, totally disregard the religious element.

I used to like it until I started losing family members around this time; it's happened two years in a row and now my grandma is ill and in and out of hospital I'm scared it will happen again pretty soon

Well Ramadamadingdong to you too buddy! :hoppy:

We won't let your miserable disposition and callous disrespect for our cultural customs/traditions detract from our celebrations :jebus:
That's Abit mean,don't you think? The OP was being somewhat harsh but it's better to always follow the example of Christ,after all Christmas is all about the Lord.

Like most people I like Christmas. It's older than Christianity anyway so I've always thought the religion point a bit moot, but everyone likes an excuse for a good feast.

Contrary to my family's overly enthusiastic approach to Christmas, I detest it.

Nope, I felt it was rather restrained, actually. Imagine if I went to Saudi Arabia and started berating the people of that country over Eid? If I met with that kind of response I'd consider I'd got off lightly! :bandit:

True, but I've seen nothing to suppose that Christ didn't have a sense of humour, and the Lord would soon whip such a little gob****e into shape
I don't think the king of Saudis Arabia would whip you for saying you don't want to celebrate eid.

But even as a Christian,I believe that Christmas itself has become too commercialised. Whatever happened to it just being about Jesus?

I'm happy to see some sensible folk,
Who understand Christmas is all a big joke,
With its stockings and presents and mulled wine and toys -
It's time we conspired to put an end to this ploy!

It starts far too early and is becoming far too comercialised for my liking.
