    I sometimes think that Christmas is one of the saddest times of the year. Why the heck do we insist on 'celebrating' it?

      I guess it's the problem with merging a religous festival with the secular - family/friends/gifts. Some things shouldn't/don't feel like celebrations and others do

          Fortunately it wasn't my question! I wouldn't have even been able to try answering it time since I was laughing so hard.

          It does seem to be a sad time of year for many people, it is for me too. I do my best not to dwell, and focus on the positives, but it can be hard when you are remembering a loved one when everyone else is caught up in the holiday spirit.

            If the idea of Christmas makes you sad, picture this: Bekki, dressed in full Edwardian dress and coat, bonnet and lady-boots, standing in the middle of the Brisbane City at 8 am in the morning, in 32 degree heat, singing Christmas carols to passers by who either looked at her like she was a creepy vision from "The Night Before Christmas" or walked by on the phone, annoyed at the singing noise....

            ....I love my job ...

            I have a game! Here's my game - it's called Guess The Tree!

            All the woohoos who celebrate Christmas with a tree send Bekki a photo of their tree Then Bekki posts the photos on the Woohoo thread and the woohoos have to guess which tree belongs to which woohoo

            (mostly, I just want to see pictures of all your Christmas trees )

            *spins in circles and shares the good cheer*

            I love Woohoos...Woohoos I love

              Well, my only problem with this is like Jumble, I have nothing of Xmas out anymore. No tree - no decorations. About the only thing I have is a few cards that I feel obligated to send because people send them to me. I look at the ones I receive, stack them together and eventually toss them.

              I do my "celebrating" at my brother's house each year which I am expected to be at for the holidays. They have 1 and 5/6th Grandchildren and that is the only reason I celebrate. Mind you I'm not in a bah humbug mood, I just think it has become much to expensive and the only reason I go is to see my family which I rarely get the op to do.

              All though I do buy gifts, I think they are riduculous except for the kids, but I can't convince my sister-in-law to stop, believe me I've tried.

              However, even with all that, I am still a sucker for a feel good old time Xmas movie where people enjoy Xmas for the family and friends it brings together (except for that one with Jimmy Steward - I can't stand watching that movie anymore) - Go figure!

                  I don't do a tree, but that's because I am Jewish. Andi and I do dec up the apartment a little with lights and stockings because it's her thing.

                  Now the shoe thing? I could totally go for that. Tho I'd have to take a pic of one I haven't posted here.

                      The way to get the cards and gifts to stop is to simply stop sending them. It might take a couple of years for people to catch on, and you have to grit your teeth, but in the end it works

                      However, even with all that, I am still a sucker for a feel good old time Xmas movie where people enjoy Xmas for the family and friends it brings together (except for that one with Jimmy Stewart - I can't stand watching that movie anymore) - Go figure!
                      I've never really gone for the Christmas movies, mainly because we get the same ones repeated year after year - I could probably recite the entire script for The Great Escape

                      Oh what an old Grinch I sound I used to love Christmas when my children were young, it was fun and exciting then, but once they were grown up and gone I preferred to just ignore it. Don't get me wrong, I never felt depressed or that I was missing out in any way, until this year. I guess I'm just missing Michael and regretting not having a Christmas with him to remember.

                      Ignore me

                        I've just heard that little Jess is in hospital with severe breathing difficulties. She's on a ventilator and they're pumping her full of steroids I'm sure she'll be fine, but it's worrying when she's so small.

                        Sent her some WooHoo hugs, it's bound to help

                        Edit: Ah, got my Martinsigs back in rotation! Yay!

                        And apparently I have 114 of them

                        But not all currently rotating

                          I force myself. It's so easy for me to dwell on what happened at Christmas a few years ago that I try to ignore it - might be bad, but I really want to try - just for the hope of maybe recapturing Christmas from when I was young.

                          I think, though, the thing I love about Christmas is the singing.

                            You've got the right idea Wendy, try to wipe out the bad memories by creating new happy ones. Although I don't think you can ever get back what it was where you were a child, you can still make it good, just different

                            I think, though, the thing I love about Christmas is the singing.
                            You mean carols? Oh dear, another thing I'd rather do without

                            Thank you

                              Not exactly carols, no. But singing. I like the bouncy songs.

                                Christmas might not be happening here anyway. I physically can't get into the cupboard to get the tree and all that out, and the other two don't seem bothered to give it a shot.

                                I'll be in the corner singing for the whole month.
