So, judging to the very descriptive posts in this thread, we can safely assume its:

"not to cheer"


Ho Ho Ho

That seems to be the general consensus. But the debate, if it is that, has changed from xmas-related hates/loves/likes to I-hate-kids-who... So the jury (to me at least) is still out on cheer or not to cheer. And I quietly peep out a "ho! Ho! Ho!".

CHRISTmas (there's a hint here) is only cool because: You get time off to braai, eat too much, drink too much, and just do nothing with family. These are all things I can really "get behind". But the other 80% of the time you have to deal with "christmas cheer" being shoved down your throat, special xmas beggars, special xmas greetings, "decorations" (BIG air quotes), having to buy buttloads of stuff for people who'd be "sad" if you didn't, every time you enter anywhere. I'm just not one for it. I hate being so absolutely coerced into having to do anything, much less "celebrate" just because there is nowhere I can go to get away. I don't know the source of this special loathing of "the holiday season". But I do loathe it.

My least favourite activity ON EARTH is to bear the brunt of a billion "geseende kersfees!" greetings on "black morning". Can we just like, put up a grammaphone that says it 50 times and have it over with?

I am the grinch and scrooge's illegitimate love child, even in the years BA (Before atheism).

Off-time: Cool, Xmas: Teh suck.

True story.

ps. I'm avoiding the whole boney-m subject for fear of popping an aneurysm.
