I vary from day to day. I used to really love Christmas but now a lot of the time it just feels like another addition to the 'to do' list with a deadline to meet.

On rough days the feelings of loneliness (even though I am not actually alone) &....I don't know there are lots of feelings that are overwhelming....are too much to bear.

Yet on other days it's OK. I have for example been out with some friends tonight for a meal & enjoyed it. Tho' now I'm home I'm replaying what I said, how I reacted, checking to make sure I didn't do or say something wrong...

I'm feeling less stressed about Christmas now that my shopping is done and my wrapping is done (except for stocking stuffers). I'm starting to feel a little more "into" Christmas. I guess like AbladeintheMeadow it varies day to day. Kit

It's so hyped up. My town has gone overboard with garish LED Christmas lights. I prefer a more natural Christmas.

Everything in the stores seems overboard. So much consumerism.

I guess I am concerned about all the suffering in the world. I will probably donate to some cause. I don't have a lot of money this year and don't want to spend it on useless stuff.

Christmas without a spiritual side seems like a ridiculous consumer event. I have gone through some trauma about my church this year which I am not allowed to talk about on PC...but it has kind of taken away the spirit of Christmas for me.

I think I am pretty grinched. I plan to go see the new Mary Poppins movie on Christmas Day. And overeat Christmas cookies. That's it. I usually love Christmas music but this year feel too depressed to enjoy it. I am alone and this year I just can't muster up fake holiday spirit.
