    Are you all about the holiday Season? Decorating, getting together with family and friends, buying gifts. Or are you all about getting it over with?


    For me the best part of the Holidays is when it's over...

    For the past couple years it's getting it over with.

    Christmas is less than 2 weeks away and I've not been in a festive mood at all.

    Christmas has become a lot more fun since I had kids. I really enjoy the season and wish it would last longer. I love seeing how excited my kids get and in general most people are just in a better mood.

    I’m always a little disappointed when it’s over.

    I love the Holidays.

    A few years ago my family made the good decision to cut down on gifts so we just do a $25 Secret Santa for anyone who wants to participate and buying for the kids.

    2 weekends ago me and my girl went up to NYC to check out the tree, Macy's and get drunk with friends.

    Last Friday we got black out drunk at her companies Christmas Party.

    Tomorrow I have 2 work related Christmas Parties 2-5 and 5-7. Saturday we're checking out the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

    Christmas movies and hot chocolate

    And on New Year's day we go to the Mummer's Parade to watch South Philly Natives dance around in drag while sporting racist signs.

    It's great

    Time off with friends and family is great. Fuck gifts. Don't buy me anything, I'm not buying you anything, lets just get drunk and stoned.

    I enjoy the Christmas season. My level of enthusiasm waxes and wanes from year to year, but in general, I enjoy it.

    Even though I live by myself I like to do a bit of decorating and put a tree up. And of course I watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas music.

    About every other year or so I also like to go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra when they roll through town.

    I have a hard time getting into the spirit of it all anymore. But I strap on a smile and go through the motions for the sake of those still engaged in the collective escape.

    The holidays got complicated after I got married. Each family wanted us there at the same time. Now I don't have anything going on except for the occasional visit from the Christmas elf.
