Why Christmas is NOT my Favourite Time of Year

It takes me a while to warm up to Christmas. There are too many things to do and not enough time to do them. Then there’s too much food to eat and not enough focus on exercising all those goodies off your body.

Maybe I’m being a “bah humbug” type of person (as usual) but when I came across this post from last year I found that all of the reasons why Christmas is NOT necessarily my favourite time of year still applies. In a few days though I’ll come around … standby!

“What?  Christmas is NOT your favourite time of year?  You’ve got to be kidding me!!!”

My girlfriend thought I was kidding; I wasn’t.  Christmas is NOT my favourite time of the year.  There, I’ve said it out loud.  And now you know.  You may not agree or even understand but hey, this is my blog so I get to share what’s on my mind 😉

Maybe it’s the blatant commercialization of the season which makes it quite hard to remember the real reason for the season because every single year all I can see is a never ending list of things to be done stretching into eternity.   And don’t talk to me about planning ahead because no matter how hard I try, the current December usually starts out being the same as the one the year before.

  1. I often tell people the same thing, mostly because Christmas has become so commercial and focused on “getting gifts” as opposed to the true gift that we were given when Jesus was born. I try my best not to stress about it and just do what I can do.


    1. I agree with this thought and every year admit to being totally stressed out trying to buy meaningful gifts on a very limited budget. It would be great if we could share the Christmas generally in some other meaningful way … Until then, I’ll join you in doing what I can with what I have as best I can. Thanks for sharing; merry Christmas!
