    I associate them with my moms family and probably being the only guest under the age of 40 (only child life.) I also dislike eggnog and Christmas music, but enjoy free food and gifts, so I could go either way. /jewpost

    Generally I hate them. I don't consider our family gatherings "parties" because it's just immediate family, so Christmas parties for me typically means our work Christmas party (or, since we're a public university, "winter retreat").
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I love parties, celebrations, events, etc. Esp with a theme. Food, drink, merrymaking, nice people. What's not to love?

    Depends on the context.

    There's the "hip to be square" party where you're rushing to get things right just because you're 'supposed to' because 'it's that time' and there might even be a little competitive factor involved where you're conspicuously partying. I can pass on that.

    I can get in on something that's more authentic and fun, though.

    I had to go to my husband's Christmas party at work last Friday. I hated it. Almost 300!!! people there. I knew no one but him. Gah!

    Christmas parties are only good if you show up a little bit late and everyone else is just a liiiiittle bit tipsy. That way, when it comes time to escape, no one will notice. I co-hosted a christmas/holiday party with a roommate a couple of years ago and it was exhausting, I don't know how people have annual parties they host. Lots of people all up in my shiz? No, thank you.

    Generally I also don't like dates on which you are expected to have the most fun ever (halloween, new years, my birthday, etc), but the holidays I can tolerate due to the copious amounts of baking I get to do, as well as reading by the fireplace and the whole house smelling like pine. Yum.
