    What do you not enjoy about christmas?

    For me it's the crowds of shoppers. I try to get everything done as soon as possible so as to avoid the stressful, chaotic throng. In a crowd your symbol cane goes unnoticed, I wonder if wrapping tinsel around it and wearing some christmas flashing LED badges would help?

    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    I canít think of anything I donít like about Christmas. Itís the only time of year you can get me to go to the mall. One of our family traditions is we go shopping the last few hours before the stores close on Christmas Eve and get all of our stocking stuffers and last minute gifts. I love the hustle and bustle. I even enjoy the day after Christmas when I put on my suit of armor and go battle the Ladies for the after Christmas decoration sales.

    The fact that once it's here it's gone in a blink of an eye. The season is just not enough for me.

    I don't like the planning. I love having people over and I love visiting them during the holiday, but I dislike the coordination of it.

    I honestly can't think of a thing. I guess if I had to pick ONE thing, it would be having to find a parking spot at the mall. However, I know what to expect, so it's not like it's a surprise or anything.

    I don't like the idea of forgetting what is the real meaning of Christmas. It's not all about the presents and all that stuff - it has become too materialistic. What comes to me, I think the real meaning of Christmas is relaxing, not stressing and no fussing, just having a family around and enjoying the Christmas spritit, not forget the food and snow. I like to give presents to be honest and I liked to have presents when I was just a kid, but that's not of course the same today.
