Which of the 2 Major Holidays Do You Celebrate?

I celebrate Chanukah, as does the rest of my family. I am with my boyfriend and his family on Christmas Eve and Day. I wouldn't say I celebrate it....I am more of an observer/enjoyer of merriment!

(Yeah FF is happier after that new skimmer santa brought on the 25th is broken in by the 27th) Hehe. Christmas here in my house. There is nothing like the chaos of cramming it all in one day! Somewhere between your nephew stealing your aunt's false teeth and pretending to love the sweater your distant cousin you haven't seen since last year bought you (man you gotta love paisley). There is Joy to be found in unity. I think I am most thankful on Christmas as opposed to Thanksgiving. It just touches a softer part of the heart. Merry Chistmas to all and Happy Chanukah as well. Either way it is a celebration of Family and Friends!

Well I'm not Jewish, so I don't celebrate Chanukah, although I do thoroughly enjoy Adam Sandler's Chanukah song ever year about this time. And as far as the
(Greed driven, Capitalism is God, Stampede the person in front of you for a $29 DVD player, I only go to church once a year and it's tonight, Mommy mommy give me that toy I want that one or I'll scream in the store, Get the heck out of my way I got a shopping cart and I'm not afraid to use it, Defensive driving is for everybody else, You have to spend at least a hundred dollars on every single person on your list or you don't love them)
joke of a holiday called Christmas...I say BAH HUMBUG!!!


Maybe it will be better when I have a kid.

LOL Poor Shaw.

We celebrate both; do Chanukah with my family, then go to England to spend Xmas with the hubby's.

Unlike Shaw, I LOVE the holiday season! Buncha reasons:

I celebrate both holidays, so twice the presents If I could include Kwanzaa and Dawali as well I would LOL

I work in a school; this year we have 2 weeks off from Xmas and New years; yay!

I lurve giving gifties, specially to the nieces n nephews. While I certainly don't limit pressies to B-days and holidays, its fun to have everyone together and oo and ahh over what everyone gets. I also like the search for the "right" gift, although I HATE shopping this time of year.

I've noticed (stores notwithstanding) folks generally ARE a bit nicer this time of year. Doors are held open, people will wave you into the line of cars, they'll let you get in front of them at the supermarket if you have 2 things and they have 50, I hear excuse me and thanx more often. And what comes around goes around; I try to do the same

Oh Scrooge-mutt. Is there any way to melt your heart with a little Holiday cheer?

I love Christmas, and am especially excited this year, because it is the first Christmas that my boyfriend and I are celebrating together. We are really looking forward to finding the perfect tree and decorating for our apartment, and I got the cutest ornament with both our names painted on it to surprise him with. I've found the perfect midnight mass for us to attend on Christmas eve, and we're having my family over on Christmas day for dinner. It all makes me feel all warm and mushy inside! I only wish I didn't have to work so that I would have more time to bake and decorate and wrap presents!
