    Smile What do the holidays mean to you?

    For me thanxgiving and christmas mean being with family,those you have been given in this world......The presents @ christmas dont mean anything and personally i like getting stuff AS I WANT IT and not all on 1 day....

    Presents are not important -- However the ppl in your life WHO LOVE YOU are the most important thing you can hope for and you should love them above everything else!!

    We have nothing else in this evil world but the loved ones we have been given (Like us on wht here,a family ) ....... Whether you celebrate Christmas or Chanukah,its all the same....

    Christmas to me isnt about Presents,its about LOVE,HAPPINESS,HELPING OTHERS,BEING WITH FAMILY,ETC...

    Peace and love to you all

    Wishing you all have a good holiday season this year and years to come

    I'm not religious so religious holidays dont mean anything to me. If find it amusing how people get so weirded out when I tell them I dont celebrate Christmas. They call me a scrooge and a weirdo. They try to tell me how its a time to be with your family and ****.

    Wow great so you can't see/be with your family any other time of the year?

    I do not care much for thanksgiving or christmas. It is not like I will start loving someone more or less on that day. Treating people on those days differently then any other day of the year is kinda hypocritical. People here start asking in October "Are you ready for christmas?". I usually respond with "Ready for what ? " and feign ignorance.

    These days holidays are just a scam to get people to buy more. In the past they had religious overtones and meant something. I agree with sasha it's a total load of bs.
    Patron: I'd like my free lunch please.
    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.
    Cafe Owner: Is our lawyer still working pro bono?

    Waste of time. Experimentation, and boredom.

    Oh! And learning.

    To me it's more fun days for us.
    I feel sorry for those who don't get it. (actually, feel sorry for their family).

    Spend money on crappy gifts / receive crappy gifts.

    If I need/want something, I'll buy it myself.

    Although, there's never too many times to get with family and friends.

    As of right now, Holidays mean nothing because i've been on a five, almost six month vacation as it is. That may change in the future.

    Holidays? Well the actual holidays means that i don't have to work, yay It also means i get to spend more time with the things that i have been planning on my work days i.e the ATV hahaha, but christmas is important because it brings everyone together, which doesn't happen otherwise (don't ask why?!) haha

    A time in which the family renews its bitching permit with each other...

    I'd rather be working.

    My family used to bitch alot at each other, I just maintained a neutral status. But I managed to make my sister more mature, and now everything's fine.

    christmas is the one time of year that all the family get together. I dont get to see my family all the time so its one time of year you can gurrantee you will spend a couple of days together. I feel sorry for all you people that say you dont celebrate or look forward to it. you are missing out.
