I love Christmas because:
the family gets together
people actually think about what someone else wants
everything gets decorated, even the fenceposts (by Mother Nature)
kids seem younger than their years, and so do a lot of adults
I hate Christmas because:
you have to try to "gift" equally so no one feels slighted. It's artificial.
there's so much congestion in the stores
advertisers use anything, ANYTHING, to hawk their wares, including hymns, religious symbols, greed, jealousy, and appeal to most of the other seven deadly sins.
