Bloody selfish if you ask me. Why dump your issues on kids - baffling!

mumeeee Tue 30-Nov-10 21:47:30

YANBU. But it's not just about the kids but about all our family here,

yanbu, this is something i have never heard of in real life, i'm shocked by how mean some people on her are toward their kids.

I dont understand why people would choose to make their kids miserable or to take away their innocence so young.

Actually isn't it about some bloke that lived 2010 years ago wink

I guess some people do have enough of the commercialisation of xmas, personally, I love it.

Even going to lapland this year to see the real big guy for myself - and of course to keep the magic real for DS wink.

YANBU. Loads of whingy egocentric tossers around here....

Pinkieminx Tue 30-Nov-10 22:52:27

YABU about santa - think it's jeff all to do with xmas if you don't want it to be - we do though grin

YANBU about rest - I dislike xmas (due to deaths and childhood traumas - [poor me emoticon]) BUT it's not about me - DH, Dc, even DF love it so jingle all the way

TinselinaBumSquash Tue 30-Nov-10 22:54:48

Yabu we do Christmas for the family not just for the kids.

BelleDeChocChipCookieMonster Tue 30-Nov-10 22:56:39

You do know it's all about MEEE don't you!

I do agree, far too many people need to just gain some perspective. Good thread. smile

These people are weird/scrooges/fucked up/miserabilists. (tick as many as apply)

mamatomany Tue 30-Nov-10 22:58:36

I think this is the backlash that comes from having selection boxes on the selves from August, people just cannot be arsed any more.

mumeeee Tue 30-Nov-10 23:34:56

FunkySnowSkeleton I#m a big kid to and so are my supposed to be adult children.

borderslass Tue 30-Nov-10 23:39:06

YANBU unless you are involved in religions that don't celebrate christmas its daft.

I know of one family who are jehovah's who removed their children from school every Halloween christmas and Easter.

It IS about me!

I want the biggest tree DH will allow

I want to go and see Santa on the little train

I want to keep the magic alive

I want the excitement and to watch them open the presents on Christmas morning

I want to slave over a fabulous Christmas dinner and have the satisfaction of watching everyone enjoy it

I let people assume I do it for the kids, and hey, yeah, the kids seem to love it. But not as much as me grin

Rannaldini Tue 30-Nov-10 23:42:45

i bet you think this fred is about you

Kaloki Tue 30-Nov-10 23:49:45

Christmas is about the birth of Christ surely? Or consumerism?

Will any children really suffer terribly for not celebrating it?

BonniePrinceBilly Tue 30-Nov-10 23:55:02

Its not just about the kids. But YANBu about the bloody killjoys with the "I don't do santa cos I never lie to my precious darlings". Bollocks, you do all the time, we all do, why not do it with something that children love and makes them very happy?

Have some brandy and chill the fuck out.
