    I'm a loner when it comes to christmas , only have 1 daughter who has lots to do at xmas , so I take a back seat and let her do her thing , No wife , a free agent , Christmas is massively over commercialised now

    I remember when I was a child at christmas I only had about 5 gifts , A scalextric car , A beano annual , Action man clothing set , Chocolate stocking , and some money to put in my Post Office saving account . Then nothing till August when it was my birthday

    I see Black Friday is coming up too, another materialistic consumerism bonanza, designed to get the imbecilic masses to part with even more money on crap they don't really need.

    My mantra for Black Friday for many years, 'not one penny' I don't buy anything at all on Black Friday, absolutely zero. Now you can if you wish, call me a miserable git over that, but it's total bollocks and I find it all rather distasteful

    I bought a chromecast last one for half price. Could have bought it earlier but thought I would save a few quid. If there is one coming up I will wait if I'm needing something and get it then. Won't go to shop and have a punchup tho and don't buy something I don't already want

    I’m a full on Christian, and enjoy giving gifts to my loved ones. Having said that, I hate Christmas ads, shopping, and movies! Divorced and disabled, it just isn’t any fun anymore. But, each year I go to the family gathering, give away 100 times more than I receive, and feel depressed afterwards. It seems the true meaning of the holiday is lost, it’s all about, “how much did you get?”. And what about Rock versions of classic Christmas songs?
