Christmas

Dancenog

104 views

So after speaking to a guy via email on here. I wanted to see what other people thought about Christmas. Is it a happy time for you or not. If not why.? If you want to share that is. 

My point of view fluctuates depending on the rest of my life. The cynical side of me views it as deriving from a way of controlling the non religious people. When you remove Christ out of Christmas. Ie like the ten commandments listing rules to the believers, then Christmas has santa watching kids to see if they are good or bad with consequences of behaviour. All to instill a sense of morality on the next generation

On the other hand, I also see it as a magical special time of year. One which should bring families and friends closer. 

Guess what killed it a bit for me is I was disowned over 25years ago by my folks. It was around Xmas and it kinda never leaves you even though I wish them no harm. I would see I even respect the fact they held strong to their beliefs. They are strong Catholics. 

Anyway what's anyone's situation. If u wanna share. I like hearing if people love Christmas or not. Just anything that makes u tick.

Hello Dancenog

 

I enjoyed what you wrote. I think both holiday, Xmas and Thanksgiving have the potential to be triggers for many emotions, both happy and sad. As we get older, the happy ones seem so long ago. I think both holidays need a "re-thinking" for the way we live today. Not everyone has family, and the media makes us feel less human if we don't fit the norms. More and more people just don't. I think like you, I want to enjoy this time of year...but feel many old memories come and get the best of me.

 

A book that came out in the 1970's and was made into a very lovely Xmas CBS special, "The House Without a Christmas Tree" has always spoken to me. As I age, even more so. The book aimed at children, speaks to every age. Christmas is what we make it, we must rethink it for "here and now"...and see what makes us happy and those around us.

 

Hugs and Merry Merry, DJXXX

I grew up in a very religiously diverse family... jews and christians. We celebrated both Hanukkah and Christmas and while we were and are still not a strongly religious family... we came to refer to the period between Thanksgiving and New Years as "The Winter Holidays" now as an adult I've carried some of the traditions that were special to me into the holiday season and created some new traditions that suit me and my life as an adult. What I like the best are the decorations... the food and the music because it's all specific to this time of year.

For about the last 25 years I have spent 24, December with the same group of people at an open house... and we are of all beliefs and backgrounds... Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists... we share food and drink, laughter and exchange gifts... and for one night set aside any differences we might have and celebrate what we have in common.
