The worse thing about Christmas are the crowds and the rude people.

Merry F'ng Christmas everyone.

I got to wake up early to volunteer for the 6am shift at Glide Memorial Church on Christmas day.

Christmas is just another corporate holiday to get the stupid to spend money they don't have, I can't wait until it's over...

To help prepare meals or cut up food for the homeless. So, no, nothing to do with the actual church service.

But you're bah humbug about Christmas, and yet participating in the spirit of giving to the homeless! Definitely better than being a total bah humbug!

I'll be floating around in the Gulf of Oman on Christmas.. yeah, you might have it bad, having rude people driving on the roads and crowds of people shopping like mad.. but, it's sure better than being away from your family during the holidays.. yes I know that I volunteered for the Navy, but doesn't mean that I enjoy being away from home, family and friends during this time of the year..

Luckily I haven't run into any rude people this year but the crowds won't be missed. Thankfully we did a lot of our Christmas shopping early to avoid all those crowds.

Who else can't wait until Christmas is over???

Me-tired of the music, rude shoppers that think that their getting a deal-unnecessary crowds-etc,etc......


The meaning is totally lost, just an excuse to spend money.

With that said, I'm off today to get my wife an ipad.

Like most all major holidays it's steeped in commercialism...

That said, I had a great time with cousins from upstate who stopped into NYC to experience the "season" and look forward to Xmass eve with my very special lady...
