The anxiety of having to spend money to show others that you care. I know it shouldn’t be necessary, but the need to give material gifts is so instilled in my psyche it’s hard to let go.

Christmas lights along the eaves.

The painful experience of having the entire family under one roof, each pretending that they could stand each other. And my older sister taking those first toddling steps to alcoholism.

My mom’s sugar cookies. I can’t for the life of me get that recipe right. Even she said it was a tough one.

The other thing that comes to mind is decorating the tree. One of my favorite things to do.

@anima_velle Jesus? NO WAY.

Seriously, I think there are more people who celebrate Christmas as a secular holiday than those who celebrate it as a religious holiday. Like the majority of of Japan’s population, only about 1% of which practices Christianity.

Irritation, depression, drunken stupor. Hibernation would be better.

@Tomfafa I believe the intellects find fun both challenging & beneath them. Oh dear light the fuse!

Tomfafa's avatar

@ucme If I were an intellect… I would say intellects have more fun! Intelligence is a fun multiplier!. They find more ways have fun… especially with women.
