I have a serious case of Grinchitus. If you and I were in the same household, there would be some serious glaring and dagger stares going on.

@RenoSweeney24:  I’m the opposite! For the most part, Christmas makes me grumpy. That’s what working retail and being a broke student will do for you!

I LOVE spending time with my family, and the idea of Christmas is ok (although I’m not at all religious), but let’s be honest – people make it about the gifts more than anything, and that turns me into the Grinch.

I love Christmas and do turn into a big kid at Christmas. My house looks like Christmas and smells like it to.

@RenoSweeney24:  I wish I was more into Christmas! I love Thanksgiving – family dinners, lots of wine, and no pressure to exchange gifts 🙂 I’m sure all of that will change once I have kids though.

OMG I was doing that yesterday!!! Lets run around the house together singing frosty the snowman!!!!!

I love the season, my favorite is Christmas Eve when my dads family come together and we all stop fighting and worrying about stupid stuff and eat goulash, driving around looking at all the lights while blarring christmas music and singing in our terrible voices and handing out gifts.  Thats always my job, I will sit on the floor and pass out gifts until the day I die because I love watching them see the box wondering what is inside then seeing the excitement when they open it.

O I could go on forever lol, I just LOVE Christmas.

I love LOVE Christmas. I just want to be nice to everyone and hear about people being nice to others. I love the smell of evergreens and tree lightings and so on!

I used to, but retail has turned me into a Grinch. I do love the sight of the lights on houses and my little Christmas tree though!

@RenoSweeney24:  Well I’m the only one willing to sit on the floor, everyone in my family has bad knees.  I’m the only one who cares enough to sit through the pain.  Fine with me! My family sits and stares back at me, buttheads; I think I’m more excited them!  Luckly FI’s family isn’t huge on Christmas so I get to call all the shots for our plans 🙂

@RenoSweeney24:  TOTALLY! I cannot even put in to words how much I love Christmas! I start counting down pretty much in September (when retail stores start bringing out the decorations!) it makes me so happy! I love seeing the street decorations coming out, I love the shopping, I even love it when you start hearing Christmas ads on TV and radio lol seriously I could happily be surrounded by Christmas stuff all year round!

I must say though, I know very few people who share quite the same level of enthusiasm haha I got home last night and my FI was already home and hadn’t turned on the Christmas tree lights yet. I told him it was a sin to be in the house and not have the lights on!
