50 Grinches Complain About The Reason They Cannot Stand Christmas 

These grinches from Ask Reddit reveal why this season isn’t actually the happiest one of all.

30. I wish people happy holidays and they get all up in arms about it’s not illegal to say it! What a shame you should say merry Christmas, blah blah blah (I work in retail.) I get all up in arms about someone wishing me a merry Christmas in like the first week of December, and I’m the fucking bad guy. I’m not christian. So fuck you.

Sorry. That got a little… Something…

31. For me its the lack of parties events because of the assumption that everyone is so busy. It used to be every club, meet-up I was in did something for the holidays. Usually one of those white elephant exchanges. Yeah cheesy but also fun. Over the years those groups dissolved, or changed. Now all the groups I’m in are doing nothing. You ask why and it’s the oh everyone is so busy around the holidays line. The thing is not everyone is. there are just a few people who ruin it for everyone else by going, Oh I’m so busy, I have the kids recital, and the work party, and I have to buy gifts, and get ready to go to my in-laws. Okay fine you are busy (or suck at time management). So you don’t have to go, but you also don’t have to constantly brag about how effin busy you are and be the busy martyr. Plenty of others look forward to these events. We don’t have the giant family, and the In-laws 3000 miles away, or whatever. How do I know? Because these events used to get everyone come out of the woodwork to attend them. So it sucks when you see a holiday event that sounds cool on meetup then later find out its just something the town is having and it’s an unhosted event posted for informational purposes. Uh yeah I can go to a tree lighting by myself and feel like crap all on my own. I don’t need to get a website for meeting people involved in that endeavor. I also hate it when they play holiday music in August but that’s probably been covered in this thread.
