The Anti-Christmas Post



Everybody should know by now that I am Christmases number 1 fan. But, there are some things about it that just irritate the shit out of me. Don’t get me wrong, most of it I love and the good definitely outweighs the bad, but there are just some little things that niggle at me and really irritate me. Most of the time though I don’t like to mention it because I don’t want to sound like a scrooge around Christmas.
So, I thought that I would let you guys know what irritates me about Christmas, welcome to my anti-Christmas Blogmas post!

Greediness
People these day, are just fucking greedy. Sorry for the cuss word at Christmas time but it was needed. Christmas to me is about my family. I’m not religious, so it isn’t about Jesus or the meaning behind it, it is just about getting time of work and spending it with the people that are special to me. Presents are always secondary. Kids these days, you will give them a present, they will open it, give it a quick eyeball and move onto the next one. It irritates me, most of the kids in my family I don’t buy for, that makes me sound like the Grinch, but until they appreciate the value of money, I’m not spending a penny on them!

How busy everywhere gets
I work very close to a major shopping centre and right near a main motorway, so you can only imagine what the traffic gets like close to Christmas. When I leave work, there is T-junction that I have to try and get out of and when all of the late December shoppers are cramming the roads, it can take me 40 minutes just to get out of the junction, that is before my drive home. GO ONLINE PEOPLE AND STOP CLOGGING UP MY ROUTE!!

It is impossible to shop
I go shopping a couple of times a week. I am definitely a shopaholic, but it is near on impossible to go shopping around Christmas time. Parking is rammed everywhere and going into the city is near on impossible for me. I love going into Harrods and having a nice stroll around and picking some things up, at Christmas it is more of a fight to get what you want and I hate that kind of shopping. People cramming their shopping into December really do give the loyal all year-round shoppers a hard time!
The expense
People just go over the top when it comes to spending money at Christmas. I don’t agree with it when people spend above their means and max out credit cards and have to take out loans. I hear all the time around this time of year about people just sticking it on a credit card. You should just buy what you can afford and not get into any kind of debt. At the end of the day, it is just a day, presents are nice but people aren’t going to be offended if you only get them a little bit of something, and if they are, fuck them!
I know that not everybody is guilty of these things, and none of them are a big deal, they are just things that get to me around Christmas time. Make sure to leave me a comment down below and let me know what you don’t like about Christmas, if there is anything!

  1. I rarely visit the shops in my town on Christmas time, no way I can do my shopping this time of the year so I prefer to shop online. Shops are way too busy in December! xx

    1. I just don't understand how so many people leave it until the last minute and then all flock to the shopping centres!

  2. I couldn't agree more! I hate going out shopping, especially during festive seasons, hence I shop online!

  3. I definitely can't stand how expensive christmas can be and just how busy it gets with a focus all about presents and stuff like that. That's why I like to get lost in a christmas movie

  4. I completely avoid the mall during holiday seasons and only go if I have no other choice. It is true, Christmas can really bring out our greed, so I try to focus on what I will give to others instead. I agree with you and I think you're right- I really enjoyed the honesty of this post. It's so much more than just gifts, I hope people will keep that in mind this year!

    Sending light & love your way,

    My Lovelier Days
