How about diamond-studded toilet paper for that extra touch of luxury!

I am traveling to my relatives for New Year celebration this year, to Hamburg, Germany. Can't wait to the trip, and just curious to know how the celebration would be there, with new people, in a totally brand new place Cheesy

Re: Getting ready for Christmas, how about the New Year?

Thankfully we are all different and we all have our own ways of thinking and doing and long may it continue; but for me, if the truth be told I hate, and yes I mean hate, this time of year when nearly everyone uses it as an excuse to either sell you something or justification for forgiveness for passed or current misdemeanours.

The phrase “Oh, but its Christmas.” or ones of a similar nature should never be uttered, what time of year it is should not be used as a basis for or justification of a change in ones morality or opinion.

I am not saying that people should not build bridges if they have fallen out previously, in fact I’m all for it, but this type of action can be done at anytime of the year, ideally minutes after the fall out.

Anyway, enough ranting before I fall off this soap box.

Re: Getting ready for Christmas, how about the New Year?

Can`t say I "hate" Christmas... as a holiday,  but I do hate all the commercialism that goes with it..

 

Unfortunately, my Christmas times have been blighted by some bad memories, (already mentioned in my Great Adventure thread).. and still are.  On the outside, I enjoy it as much as I can... inwardly, I feel somewhat depressed by it all.

@shutter

I fully understand how you feel as I had some particularly bad memories around Christmas which, try as I might to shake off, they still put a dampener on thingsSad

Re: Getting ready for Christmas, how about the New Year?

Which is why new year should be the focus of celebration.

As society changes and becomes increasingly multicultural, the 25th of December is becoming increasingly irrelevant for the majority, and those that promote it from September onwards in shops and stores especially are pushing against the tide of secularism.

Celebrate, and mark times and seasons by all means but to have what was our midwinter feast hijacked by religion and corporate commercialism? No thanks.
