    It's for kids or at least it should be for kids.
    For adults it's generally forced fun and the painfully forced fun aspect seems to increase every year.

    I haven't been interested since I was about 16. Now it's just a period of eating and drinking more than usual.

    I wouldn't say I hate it, but at the same time I don't get any enjoyment out of seeing family members I haven't seen for the rest of the year either.

    Thankfully this year I should only be seeing my parents. So I can go over there, eat and drink like a maniac, and then get home and do whatever I want to do.

    It's kind of nice when you have kids, watching them trim the tree and opening gifts and such. But when single, it was no big deal. I actually worked Christmas 10 years straight as my job gave a big bonus for covering those days. Easy money, and passed the time quickly.

    Merry Christmas to you too Mike, you'll be in my thoughts during my dinner toast.

    Cheers.

    There is something nauseating about the shops all playing the same music, staff forced to wear Xmas sweaters, everyone out shopping like crazy buying the same tat. I'm happy online shopping means I can limit my exposure to all that. The family bit, presents, dinner etc I like.
