Do you enjoy Christmas? I love it, with a reasonable amount of family who I don't see all that often back around and friends who live in various parts of the country. Good food (though less of that this year on the diet) and Christmas Eve at the pub is usually good fun too.

Some people seem to hate it, which I can understand. But I'll enjoy it, even if it is the first one without my Grandma who died earlier this year. I've got quite a lot of family around my own age which is nice, so it's good to have them all back around for Christmas.

So do you enjoy it?

I love it....

Plenty of booze, cooking for the family, the tv, time off work, parties, the trees with lights on, the lights on every high street in fact pretty much everything about christmas I love.

I am 37 and have always loved christmas (in fact the whole of december) even before I had my daughter and it gets better now I have a little one (she is 4).

Yeah, I enjoy it. It's fun watching my nephew having the time of his life, and spending a few cozy days with family and good food and drink is nice.

In the US, Christmas is an insane frenzy of commercialism, which I take pride in avoiding and ignoring at all costs.

Hmmmmm. It's a tough one, when your younger, it's the greatest thing ever.

However now, it's tough.

Positives:

- Get to see family.

- Presents.

- See all friends Xmas eve, night out.

Negatives.

- Mom buys too many presents, even If I specifically say I don't want anything....she's too nice, plus when I say that too my Dad, he doesn't buy me much so then it's akward, Mom spending £££ on me and Dad spending little.

- The food, I hate it personally, well the meat especially, I don't mind roasters etc...+ you have to sit at the dinner table for God knows how long, waiting for people to finish. Borin'ell.

- Buying presents. Spending money on presents that most likely won't be used or liked.

I voted, it's alright.

I loved it last year - snow, first Christmas day with girlfriend and her family (which happens to be a lot better than with my boring lot!) and some decent presents. I'm going to make the most of this one, probably the last I'll have 3 weeks off for before I retire/die anyway.

Bah Humbug ...Really dislike it and do my best to avoid it to the point that ive only been in the UK for Christmas about once in the last 15 years ...

Saying that the places you go to to escape it have Santa and trees etc anyway so pretty hard to avoid it..

All my memories of Christmas when I was younger is my mom and dad being in debt just for one day...I remember them having loans so me, my brothers and sisters could have lots of new toys and clothes...Then after Christmas my mom and dad arguing about money.

Because of that I really really really hate Christmas....It just reminds me of people going into debt and aruging over that debt afterwards.

Strange really as I only have my son really to look after and buy for, but I still hate Christmas.

I like Christmas, I hate the way it's built up to be the greatest day of the year. It's just a pleasant day with the family, some booze and some food and maybe a couple of nice presents. It's enjoyable, but I don't like having it shoved in my face for months leading up to it, because it's not THAT good.

Loved it as a kid, began to really dislike it when I got into my 20's, but the past few years I've begun to appreciate it a bit more. It's a bit over hyped and expensive, but **** it, it's a break from the old routine and has a totally different feel to any other time of the year.

Don't do it so it's not a problem.

What's awful is that it's the worst time of the year for domestic violence incidents. OK I suppose drink is involved but still it's a dreadful statistic.

Interesting reading 40% don't like the Celebration. The rip off commercialism that now surrounds it...

means some families just get into further debt trying to pay for it all. You can understand them dreading it!
