  • poll: If someone is vocal about hating Christmas should they receive a gift from you?

    Yes, it might cheer them up

    No, they dont like Christmas they dont deserve a gift.

    Unsure, Maybe

    I think your friend is rude and unless she has a lot of good qualities that weren’t mentioned in this post, I don’t understand why you would want to be friends with her.

    Mrs.MilitaryBee:  Why are you cultivating this friendship? I would give her a card which says “Knowing how much you hate Christmas, I have made a donation to ____ in your name.”

    Do these people buy you gifts back? If they dont then dont bother at all and if they do I would probably talk to them and come to an agreement saying that you know they dont like christmas so you were thinking that you could try not doing gift swapping this year. Then I would see their reaction and maybe continue every year. It would make me annoyed buying gifts for people every year who not only didnt see the point but also didnt appreciate my gifts.

    I don’t think the issue here is trashing the holidays so much as these people are just rude.

    I think my gift gifting to these people would quit in 2016. Unless you have a slice of humble pie available for them..

    I dont celebrate christmas, but I never understand people who make fun of other’s happiness. I’ve had friends who used to make fun of things I get really excited about, and well I end up distancing myself away from that. You dont need that negativity. Shes way too rude.

    I find it interesting that if this bothers you so much, like your husband says, don’t give gifts to those who “trash the holidays” and I would talk with her about talking bad about the holiday with you or in front of you. Don’t listen and stop her when she starts in it on it, because your silence says she can still do it even though it hurts you.

    Just noticed she gave you a gift, why would she do that? I would not accept her gift if she hates the holiday and I would call her on this point… I would say “Do not give anything if you don’t like the holiday”
