Post by: J-cob9000 on 08 Nov 2009, 06:05
but oh well. I love Christmas too much to not start this thread early.

I only started this thread because I've begun listening to Christmas music. Has anyone else?

After working 17 years of retail (the first 8 of those in toy stores), this is my 2nd Christmas in a row I WON'T be on the wrong side of the counter (the bright silver lining to getting fired last year), so maybe I'll be able to untense enough to actually enjoy some of the season this year.

Shane, Sufan's good, but I'll raise you an even better album.

I also stole this last year (http://www.amazon.com/Maybe-This-Christmas-Various-Artists/dp/B0002S94XY) from my radio station and by "stole" I mean copied to my laptop. Some songs are not so great, but I think I'd still rather listen to this album in full than most other Christmas collections. I like the Raveonettes one the best, I think.

It's the only pop Christmas music CD that I don't hate.  Speaking of which, who else has a family tradition of listening to Handel's "Messiah" on Christmas day?  I was the coolest kid on the block!

I'm surprised the stores even wait until after Halloween to start decorating for Christmas.  Does it really help sales?  I personally avoid stores these days because I don't want to endure two months of Christmas, but I guess I'm vastly in the minority?  Everyone I know hates it.  In fact, in my house there was only one day on which Christmas music was allowed to be played while my father was at home (my mother would play it while decorating), and that was December 25th, damnit.

I really, really dislike Christmas. As soon as the carols start playing in stores I get very annoyed when having to go shopping. My mother would make a big thing about how we had to have a tree and decorate it, where we all had to be there to put the star on, and while that was great when we were kids, after a certain age my brother and I just didn't care, so she got annoyed at us. Plus, after a few years of Christmas Day ended in arguments neither of us actually wanted to be there to pretend to be a happy family.

The only good thing about it is that New Year is really soon after that, and once January 1 comes about then the supermarkets start making hot cross buns, so I get to eat them for months before it is hard to find them again.

who else has a family tradition of listening to Handel's "Messiah"

Every couple of years, when my grandmother was alive, my family used to drive from Canberra, where we lived, to Adelaided, where she lived, for Christmas. That's a fifteen-hour drive. When my brother got old enough to drive we'd do it all in one go, starting soon at dawn and ending well after dark, with my mum, my dad, and my brother taking turns to do the driving. Needless to say, it was not something any of us looked forward to. (This was before the days of budget airlines and cheap and plentiful flights in Australia.)

Anyway, naturally on such a drive you do a lot of listening to the radio. And it being Christmas, ABC Classic FM (the national classical music radio station) would always broadcast a live performance of Handel's Messiah. And one year, I kid you not, while listening to the Messiah and after being on the road for fifteen hours, the Hallelujah chorus started literally the instant we turned the corner into my grandmother's street.

It was pretty amusing.

I can find them in two bakeries in Sydney, so it is not a big deal any more (though they have peel in them, which i don't like), but when I lived out of a major city I couldn't find them anywhere after Easter. Also, listening to Classic FM for 15 hours (not even considering 15 hours of classical christmas music) sounds like torture. Then again, my brother would probably say the same thing of 15 hours of Triple J, so to each their own, I guess.

Huh. My family regularly does cross-country trips (this being across the US, from Colorado to Georgia, 1500 miles), and we enjoy it. Of course, we usually start out at night, so we sleep through a good part of it (including Eastern Colorado and Kansas, which is the extremely boring part anyway), and we always stock up on books and games beforehand.

We might be doing one this Christmas, actually. That will be fun, as long as we don't hit any blizzards.

All due respect to your blizzards, but I expect if you were doing it in the middle of an Australian summer you might feel differently about it.

When I was very young we did it in a car with no air conditioning. Ho. Ly. Shit.

I do this thing where I leave anonymous gifts for people I appreciate, mostly because I really appreciate them, and I don't want to diminish the gifts by having me give them (I have a piss-poor self image).  Living on a college campus makes anonymous giftleaving quite easy in practice - all I have to do is approach the dorm room or the office, knock thrice, and run like hell.  Not too far, obviously - I do want to ensure that they've received the gift before I leave forever and make no mention of it forthwith.

Does anyone else do this?  I actually enjoy it a great deal, and hearing the appreciative reactions like a creepy voyeur actually brings me a bit of calm.  I'm going to commence work on them as soon as my schedule clears up, and I can't wait to start leaving them around.

My mom always made too many Christmas cookies.  By "too many," I mean that we are still working on the previous year's batch when she starts a new one.  She has reduced that number since the number of people she can give them away to through me is pretty much zero (since she can't even get any to me until I come visit for Christmas), but it's still impressive.  It's also probably why I am fairly into baking myself, though these days I don't really have that much time.

Most of the fun is running like hell and experiencing them receiving the gift, though I suppose the pigeonhole would make it a security that the gift would get to them.
And you must admit that the anonymity sort of adds to the mystique, even if it does beg the question of 'who was socially awkward enough to leave a gift without the good grace of presenting it personally.'

Christmas time is awesome. Even more awesome, though, is thanksgiving time. It is only nov 10, but my grandma is already starting on thanksgiving dinner ingredients. Which means soon the house will smell like thanksgiving for about a week before thanksgiving it's self. Then it will be christmas season and cookies and candies will be everywhere.

That said, fuck christmas music. I worked in the mall one christmas, and, irritatingly enough, I worked about twenty feet from the stage for the live, awful christmas performances. Nothing will make you hate christmas music like hearing it for 10 hours a day 6 days a week for three weeks.

I think Christmas is pretty cool. When I was 15 I moved quite a considerable portion of the province away from my extended family, and our annual family Christmas party is the only time I get to see them all.

I have a question: Am I a rare case in that I am not particularly fond of Christmas/Thanksgiving dinners? The food is just kind of boring to me. I have been trying to convince my mom to do something more interesting on Christmas for years but the turkey tradition has not released its stranglehold on holiday meals.
Title: Re: (It Is Much Too Early For) A Christmas Thread!
Post by: Bastardous Bassist on 10 Nov 2009, 11:27
I think that the dinners are pretty awesome, because (1) lots of stuff can be done with turkey (for Thanksgiving) and large roasting meat (for Christmas) and (2) I rarely eat turkey or a large roast, so it still maintains the deliciousness necessary.

This is the first year my grandmother won't be doing either.

My grandmother is an English woman. As such, she cooks like an English woman. Mm, boiled potatoes and steamed cabbage. It's nothing spectacular, trust me.

The trick is to have lots of other stuff as well. I for one am a sucker for turkey because the only time I eat it is during the holidays, and I always end up eating turkey for like a week after thanksgiving because there are always leftovers. It's awesome.

That said you can cook whatever you want, it'll all get eaten. So if you don't want turkey, learn to cook and get to work. Broaden everyone's horizons.

My family isn't much into the whole christmas thing because we're Belgian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas), so we don't have the big roast and stuff. Instead it's our 'everyone cooks a different part of the meal night'. So basically it usually ends up with my dad or mom cooking the main meal, and my brother or me preparing desert/appetizer. It's always really delicious, and lots of fun.

One year my dad made an icebox cake in the shape of a dragon's tail. It was pretty awesome.

My family used to cook a full hot lunch with ham and turkey and cabbage and roast potatoes and cauliflower, the whole shebang, when my (very Irish) Grandparents would visit. This is in the middle of Summer, remember, so my parents would be sweating in the kitchen while the oldies would sit in the air conditioned room and relax.

Once we moved 6 hours away from them we went the more logical route and had a cold Christmas lunch, With a small breakfast and leftovers for dinner. Oh, and prawns; lots and lots of prawns, with salt and lemon. Maybe my favourite part of Christmas was sitting down peeling and eating prawns all afternoon until you can't eat any more, then going and laying down for an hour to digest.

You haven't lived until you have experienced a summer Christmas.

Man I love the Christmas siesta.

Sometimes my family has a salmon, but usually we do the traditional Christmas turkey etcetera, partly because my mum's from England.

Speaking of which, I ought to step in here and defend English food. I spent most of 2003 living with my grandparents in England. My grandmother did all the cooking, and she cooked very traditional English food, which meant that basically there weren't any spices in it. But she was a good cook and she took care to get good ingredients - especially meat - so all the food she cooked was delicious. I'd call it "subtle" rather than "boring".

On Christmas Eve I'll be going to my Dad's place (it's a European thing apparently?) and I am expecting prawns, smoked salmon, lots of fish, various Hungarian foods and other such stuff. Then on Christmas Day I'll be at my mums where I am expecting turkey and shouting. I like Christmas Eve a lot but Christmas Day has been terrible ever since my mum decided she didn't want to go to the big family things that happen every year because she refuses to get over some minor argument she had with one of her sisters. The year my brother and I decided to have Christmas at our place (at which we cooked and did everything so that all mum had to do was show up and have a good time), she told us we'd ruined christmas and were terrible sons for doing so and that we're never having christmas anywhere but her place again. My mum's place is incredibly filthy and littered with useless junk (she's a hoarder so she has piles of magazines from when I was a child and because she has a bad back and knee she can't clean up after her cat which is not really litter-trained).

I kind of hate Christmas Day.

so basically life isn't worth living unless you're in a relationship and the girl you're in a relationship with is uncreative enough to ask for anything for christmas other than expensive jewelry she sees in commercials on television?

dang man i am sorry if this sounds bitter but in an incredibly superficial capitalist society like this one you have basically got to realize major industries at christmastime profit immensely from this kind of thinking. forget about this nonsense, be happy, life is actually pretty cool.

While I do enjoy myself some anti-capitalist rhetoric, I believe I speak for all single-jewelry-store-commercial-watchers when I say that it's less about crass commercialism and more about the bitter, crushing lonliness.

Christmas is kind of a Big Deal in my house. My mum love love loves it, we have a ridiculously large Christmas tree (we can't have a real one, mum is allergic) and it's 10' tall. It takes about five or six hours to put it up and get it decorate, it's an effort.

We generally do a big lunch with a baked dinner and prawns and whatnot. But mum does a mixture of things, so there's the roast, prawns and cold meats as well. Because I have a sister and step-siblings who do attend their other parent's houses for Christmas as well, it gets a bit mixed up and basically, whoever is there is there. It makes it more complicated with we have boyfriends involved or whatever and we need to attend their parent's Christmas festivities.


My favourite part of Christmas is finding presents for people. I love finding perfect gifts and things that I know people will like. It's lots of fun.

Do you have an incredibly tall house, or do you have it outside? Ten feet seems kind of high to me, although I might be misjudging.

10 ft. is about the height of an average roof. It's a bit more than three meters?

I used to own a bunch of christmas decorations and a sparkly tree but it got lost/stolen in the big move/breakup.
I'd buy a whole bunch for this year but I'm saving my money and nobody ever sees my apartment anyway :(

Eris, I love the Fabian song too! You = made of win for reminding me of that one.

Last year we couldn't afford a tree but we hung up all three strands of tinsel and some gold gift shaped present ornaments that we have. It was my first Christmas ever without a tree and I got super sad when I realised we couldn't get one and cried a little bit, but not in front of Jesse because I didn't want to make him feel bad. Then my parents in law invited us over to help decorate their tree and we all had egg nog and sang carols and I felt better. I love Christmas.

This year I get two Christmases. I will have the regular one here in Canada, and then Jesse and I will be going to Australia to visit my family. It will be new years eve when we arrive, but I will insist everyone pretend it's still Christmas or else.

I am super excited for Christmas, because my mom and I go Martha Stewart all over the holidays.
We rarely Christmas shop (for presents) at the mall; instead we go to the One of a Kind show, which is this huge expo in this huuuuge convention centre, and a zillion artists bring their wares and we can usually find something for almost everyone. It takes about 8 hours to really shop this craft show. It's great.

Then we pick a colour scheme for the dining room table and begin preparations for the centrepiece! This (http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-sf2p/v165/68/113/1649550139/n1649550139_103031_2222.jpg) was the table in 2007, and this (http://photos-c.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v1766/68/113/1649550139/n1649550139_172020_830.jpg) was the table in 2008. Seriously, we go nuts.

The only thing I'm not happy about is working retail. The Christmas music has begun already, and Santa arrives at the mall TOMORROW. Ugh.

That would probably keep me from eating seconds. Honestly, when I am eating, if I have to get up again to get food I won't. My body either eats tons of food or moves around, but rarely both. That being said, I love that my family has a big dining room table, and I am looking forward to thanksgiving so much this year because it will be the last feast I have for a while.

I have done all my Christmas shopping as I have to give it to my Mum when she comes up to say hi next weekend.

I am not normally excited about Christmas, but I think I am this year. Mainly as the boy is the most Bah Humbug man you WILL EVER MEET.

As in last year he spent Christmas day on his own & had a pot noodle for foods.

This was all by choice.

I didn't get a lot of gifts, but the ones I got were pretty good, and the food was delicious, and my parents calmed down from their usual Christmas Eve-freakout around 3PM, and I even got warm quickly after being incredibly, ridiculously cold when we visited the cemeteries. Overall, it was a pretty good day, after noon.
