Default The Crap things about Christmas - the Bah Humbug thread

1. The stupid adverts, especially

the Kays advert where they are stuck in the airport, will someone please feed that bitch.

Or the Coke advert with the Polar Bears and the Penguins, firstly polar bears only live in the North Pole and Penguins only live in the South pole, they would never meet and secondly wouldnt the coke be frozen?

2. Stupid non commital Cards - "Greetings of the Season"

3. The mall covered in Christmas decorations and having a Santas Grotto but all the stores saying "Happy Holidays"

4. Charities, why are we expected to give so much at work in December - 11 months without a peep and then all of a suddenly every 2 seconds we are expected to give money.

5. Whats the thing about Ham?

6. Weird flavoured coffees at Dunkin Donuts

There are more but I'm watching the Panthers

Hmmmm, let me see:

1) http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=343401

2) Kids that get everything they want.

3) Parents that get their kids everything they want.

4) Seeing family (especially if they live in the South).

5) Cinnamon

Christmas is all about Coca Cola commercials for me and nothing else

1. The annoying Lexus adverts. This year we have the woman who starts looking at golf clubs for her spouse then decides on a Lexus. Mmmmmm not much difference in price there. lololol

2. Being unable to buy a decent birthday card for anyone with a December birthday because the shelves are full of Christmas cards.

3. Green bean bloody casserole, made with green beans stewed to buggery and French's dried onions. Bring on the roast parsnips.

4. Buying something on December 1st only to find that on December 6th its now 50% off.

5. Not being able to buy mixed spice for my Christmas cake.

6. People spend weeks putting up lights, trees etc etc only to take them all down on December 25th.

Christmas jumpers (or holiday sweaters should I say)
Eggnog flavoured stuff
Can't think of anymore, I'm sure there's lots more.

Unless they're on the outside of the house, in which case many people here leave them up until March.

Christmas like most holidays is what you make of it. I loved it when I was a kid. I'm looking more and more forward to each one, now that I have the chance to see the magic again through the eyes of my 2 little boys.

The same crappy Christmas tunes in every store...

Those miserable people dressed up ringing bells outside the stores.... you would think that if they actually looked happy then people may give a little ...

Relatives...

Cinnamon... what is it about the yanks and this bloody stuff, it makes me puke
