I tend to hate people at Christmas too.
“Spend spend spend” meets “family and loving”, and this shallow contradiction gets forced down your throat for months.
I just don’t want to celebrate Xmas anymore. So I am tempted to go out for Chinese food on Xmas. But I am currently looking forward to celebrating Yule while everyone else celebrates Xmas and my sis’ b-day (New Year’s Eve). My parents are not too fond of my Yule appreciation.
