13. Thers a difference between Christmas and Xmas
As an atheist, I like the Christmas season, meaning the gathering of friends and family and the time off work :) What I despise is the commercialization and obligation thrust upon us to buy shit for others. I stopped buying shit years ago and only send a nice "holiday" card. Thats it, nothing more. It took my family a while to adjust to it but have come to accept that its just how I do it.
