The Lounge>Perhaps an unpopular opinion - I don't like the holidays
TLO 08:09 AM 11-23-2021
This is kind of hard to talk about, and I'm not certain of the words to explain why I don't like them.

Anyone else feel the same way?

I enjoy nearly everything about the time of year from Thanksgiving week through New Years. Only thing I dislike is having to run around to several different locations for various family events, but that's just part of being an "adult".

I have to imagine it just depends on how you spend the holidays. I live near my wife's family but around 8 hours from most of mine, so the holidays are the set time of year when we always make it back at least once. I also get to see some of my close friends whose families live near mine. So while I don't really care about the gift giving side of it all, it's nice to get to see people I don't otherwise get to very often.

But all that said, I generally get along with family on both sides, so I don't have to deal with irritating people like some of you do.

Move at least a thousand miles away.
Go visit the first holiday season.
Every holiday season after that say, it's your turn!
Sit back and enjoy the quiet house every year.
Profit.

My wife has had enough of Thanksgiving. She didnt grow up here in the U.S., so its just something she has tolerated for my benefit. Weve discussed it over the past couple of autumns and now Ive decided to give it up for her benefit. Once the leaves fall, were going directly into Christmas mode. She loves Christmas.

Holidays mean little to me, really. Thanksgiving is fine- I enjoy the meal, but the season writ large seems like forced fun / forced obligations. We used to put up an 8" tall battery powered christmas tree for about 15 years, and that was it for decorations lol. My wife recently bought a 3' tall plastic tree, and she likes decorating it. As a kid I found the entire evolution of decorating, and then boxing stuff up to not be very enjoyable.

The non-stop christmas movies on TV (which are mostly bad, let's face it), and obnoxiously over-the-top decorations on every store front steer me towards being more apathetic than anything. I don't hate the holidays, but they mean as much to me as breast cancer awareness month.

You just need to hand her a cookbook and an apron and tell her she should be "thankful" that you don't ship her ass back to whatever commie pinko hellhole she came from.

Can my better half, myself, my 3 kids, and 8 various animals move into your spare bedroom?

Like the Holidays, hate the expectations.
I just want to spend time with the family and all that other shit is just stupid fluff.

No, I like Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years.

It's the postgame, January-February that I could do without in New York.

Just take some marijuana edibles. Makes everything more fun. Gives you a big appetite, and there's mountains of food. If you get drowsy, you can just nap in your chair, it's totally normal.

This is sound advice

You can move into my rental, but looks like I'll need a spreadsheet to figure out cleaning fees... are all 11 potty trained?

Sounds like good advice until you find out cousin Jimmy got a job with the police department and he brought along his K9 partner Sniffles aka "Hippy Ripper."
