    Holidays were pretty cool from ages 0 to 8. Then it stopped being about fun and more about monotonous social convention.

    I love the holidays and am upset when they are over. The reason for this is I have far less work during the holidays, get presents, and... not much responsibility. I also love the festiveness that goes on during the holidays - the music, the sights, the lights, etc.

    What can I say? Food, friends, and song. For me, it's all good.

    1. great food and dinner atmospheres (Fe, Se)
    2. usually less school work (Ni, Se)
    3. sometimes vacation and looking forward to new places (Ni, Se)
    4. excuse for people to have fun and get together for reasons other than drinking themselves stupid (Fe Se)
    5. time of year where kids and adults can have fun together (Fe Se)
    6. something to ask people about when you run into them (Fe)
    7. its a nice re-calibrating, "yearly gauge everything" point... other holidays serve this too (how have my last 21 christmases been?). (Ji, Pi)

    I don't make them a big deal, but everyone else does so i live vicariously through them. I can go back to the peace of my own Scrooge-self at the end of the day.
    I don't really like buying things for people, but i like baking and cookie exchanges. Decorating the tree is a nice event when children aren't present.

    I can go either way with it. This December has gone by like nothing for me. I didn't even realize how close Christmas is. Bah Humbug :p

    Every year I do my little rundown of Macy's Herald Sq.; my favorite store for the holidays. I never buy anything, but just pass through all the floors, reminiscing beign taken shopping for the holidays as a kid.
    For the past few years, some of the stores had begun staying open 24 hours Christmas week, so I took the advantage to go in the dead middle of the night, even beyond the normal late hours the stores used to have. So I left my house at 2, and got there at 2:47. You would think that would be PM and not AM. Leaving at the time coming home from the latest possible hours stores would open in the past (like 1AM).
    There was no one outside, but a few people inside, workers in groups just waiting around, lots of guards on their walkie talkies, yet the McDonalds was for some reason rather busy. (Should have posted this from there on my cell, then).

    Interesting to see "life" at a time when everything is usually totally dead.
    Then I decided to swing by Rockefeller Center (It was exactly 4 by then), but that was completely closed, and the tree even off. (Never sure what went on there overnight).
    Have a headache now (not able to get fully asleep before or after), but it was quite interesting. Like being in some paradise or land of endless plenty; to have things open all night.
    Shows where the money is (Unlike Transit and other businesses and the economy in general where we are in perpetual cutback mode).

    All of that's true for me, except for travelling, never done that, no need in our family, and I don't like asking people what they've done because unless it's out of the ordinary or emotionally powerful I'm not really interested, and I don't usually feel like telling people about what I've done, either.

    I think my Fi, Ne and Si get a lot out of Christmas as well. All the magic and mystery, outlandish stories and folklore and how much 'good will' and joy and peace and beautiful imagery and hope are stressed, and the nostalgia. Although I'm not religious I love a lot of Christmas hymns and some popular Christmas singles, too.

    And I don't think anyone's mentioned snow yet. That's one the best bits! When the sun starts to go down it looks like a thick, smooth blanket covered in glitter.

    I don't mind the commercialism, repetitive music (except for "Last Christmas") or even the faint religious overtones - I can stay at home if want to avoid it. Problem is, my relatives keep invading said place every year at the annual giveaway distribution and fill it with mindless conversation and forced sociability :rolli:.
    IN SERIO FATVITAS.

    Holidays don't bother me. Christmas music can get annoying though.

    I don't have a problem with holidays per se, but rather the attendant festiveness -- seasonal songs on the radio and overly cheery people tend to irk me.
