    Actually I am getting this as an answer from someone I was talking to about it. I also know someone heavily into Christmas and they feel like other people should be. I imagine if you were on the receiving end of that about a holiday it could make you have a bad attitude.

    I'm not a boycotter of holidays but sometimes I can't be bothered or I forget about them. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, birthdays are kinda big deals to me. We don't go all out like some people do but we put up a tree, roast a turkey, dye eggs, eat cake. Normal anniversaries are not a big deal to me, but I'm not above using them as an excuse to drag my husband to Cracker Barrel or some other place he might not normally go.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    I could come up with one, but it would get me banned.

    Again.

    I keep trying to use that one.

    "Why didn't you pick up diapers like I asked?"

    "I'm an INTP."

    Doesn't seem to work.

    It's filler. Like talking about the weather.

    I would think you(general or specific) would be able to make up a better answer than "boycott!!!!!!!1111" though.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
