Well, every Christmas is a quite sad memory to me. I don't actually have a Christmas. Just stay alone, sometime because of too lonely, I cry at night *blush*

I am a Scrooge ("You keep Christmas in your way and let me keep it in mine.") but not a Grinch. Everyone else is welcome to Christmas their brains out, as long as they don't insist I do the same.

I would say nothing.
I celebrate Christmas, but other than it's Jesus' birthday, I don't see the big deal over it as you can always give someone a gift any time of the year. Don't need to be "forced" to do so on one day (or multiples if you count mother's day, father's day, and doomsda... er V-Day)

2 and 3 because my religion is not in that vein of Christianity
2 because I like getting stuff even though there isn't much I need or want
3 even though it's just me and my parents although I am spending it over with extended family this year

We always make a lot of appetizers on Christmas Eve and on Christmas so we help cook and it's really fun. Plus everything tastes fantastic!

I LOVE all the hype that comes before Christmas!!!
After Thanksgiving, Xmas carols start to come on the radio, you shop for gifts for your freinds and family, you look forward to the celebrations, and pray for snow and a White Christmas (which never happens, btw). And buying and decorating the tree, and baking Xmas cookies and coffeecake, and BEING SO HAPPY!!!!

I DON'T enjoy, on the other hand, the midterm exams that come around riht before Xmas...THOSE SUCK.

But other than that, what's not to love? :3

While I do enjoy the idea of Christmas where one gets together with family and celebrates the birth of Jesus, I think that what we celebrate today has become a perversion of the true spirit of Christmas. It seems like most people only care about the presents rather than the fact of His presence. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy getting presents, however, that is not what Christmas is all about...

The expressions on my friends' faces as they open the presents I worked so hard on for them. It's a gift unto itself...

And also the looks of pride on their faces as I freak out over the gifts I received from them...

I like the giving aspect. I mean, getting gifts is cool, but I have more fun seeing how other people enjoy gifts and being happy. I dunno where that lands in the poll exactly...

Some songs, the christmas tree with its candles, our typical German Christmas pyramid, the service, the food, some familiy members, snow and food. Probably almost everything :)

I don't believe in the religious aspects of it, (I don't follow any particular religion - i'm not an atheist though) I think of it more as a time to come together with family and appreciate the whole of the year, especially seeing as everyone usually gets too blitzed to do it at new year.

I am one of the very few it seems that genuinely prefer to buy gifts for other people, than to receive them. I just love finding that perfect gift that I know that person will love, and seeing their face when they open it. I always try to do it at least 3 times a year, not just at christmas.

It's also a time to celebrate the amount of goodwill most people seem to save for only one month a year. I notice at work, when all the business men come through to buy their lunch, or the mums come in after a long day of christmas shopping with two toddlers, they all seem far more relaxed and just generally happier than earlier on in the year.

Too old to get presents, plus I had to spend my Christmas working so it felt just like any other day. But it got better once the older people of the family got together and had an alcohol induced karaoke party.

... No, there are just some less religious people out there that consider Christmas only as a holiday for giving rather than a day of religion.
