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.

40. I think what I hate most about Christmas is how fake it all is. At its root it’s a Christian holiday superimposed on the Pagan holiday Yule / Saturnalia, and it’s not about giving, it’s about exchanging.

41. Teaches kids that rich kids are better because Santa gives them better presents. Also fails to teach kids that their parents work hard to give them a gift and instead has them praising a fake omnipotent being.

I actually enjoy Christmas because it’s an opportunity to spend time with loved ones and show your appreciation in the form of a gift but the idea of Santa and lying to kids makes no fucking sense to me
