    Every year I try to get in the CHristmas Spirit but as Christmas inches closer I seem to get more and more depressed. This year is kinda the worst because I found out that I have cancer a few weeks ago.I get Non stop sob stories in email and PMS and can't help everybody. I know it's strange but I didn't join BHW to make money did that well enough before I found this site I joined to help people but it seems that a lot of people want to be spoon fed or want you to give them all the tools for free. It kinda eats away at you. I want to help people but sometimes you have to ask is it worth it. Anybody else have a problem keeping the Christmas Spirit going?

    I hear ya mad. I'm sorry to hear about your cancer. Actually i'm sure you've been hearing that alot lately so I won't do it to you. I myself have been this way for the last 3 years. It seems like my christmas spirit is completely absent now. Just another day to me. The only thing keeping me running on fumes is my 4 year old girl. Watching her face as she opens her gifts is the only joy I look forward to. Other than that, i'm focused on 2009 as 2008 has been the most stressful year i've had. This is a really great community and I hope to contribute one day.

    christmas sucks one reason people hate it because they start advertising it and selling christmas shit around october

    so by time it comes to end december people had enough of it

    in uk radio 1 held a petition to try make it that it cant be advertised till december the 1st lol

    would be better that way

    Hi Madinaz.

    Im so truly sad to hear about your situation. :(

    I used to love these times in the past but we found out that my mom was seriously ill round these days in the end of 1999 and unfortunally passed away a few days later in 2000. Also i miss my child that i cant see anymore at this moment so yeah...

    Its time that hell freezes over i guess sometimes hehe...

    Keep your head up high bud!

    Let me start by saying sorry to hear you have Cancer, I hope you will fight it and get rid of it.

    Well I don't believe in Christmas or any other holiday so there is nothing really changing it for me.
    Only thing I like about Christmas is that most people are in better mod than usual.

    Now to the point of helping, I have an uncle that gives just a bit of information on most things that people ask him, never the whole story or anything really useful, just couple of hints for you too look for.
    If you can't figure out and get the information or what your trying to do after this hints your not worth having this information or what ever your looking for.

    But if you find something else and tell him, yeah I found this and that, then he gives you a little more hints that are a little bit better.

    So after going through the process of find out what you where looking for and the time that was spent on getting all the information and knowledge you become almost an expert in this area.
    So it gets to be kind of like the fishing story or what its called.

    Give a hungry man fish to eat and he will survive today, learn the hungry man to fish and he will be able to survive and support him self in the future.

    I`m actually pretty relieved that I don`t put so much emphasis on xmas. I`m tired of all the christmas charade. People putting coca cola on the table, and saying this is what christmas is all about. I don`t really know what christmas is really all about, but I know it`s not about consumption. I laugh in the face of sheeple. I don`t worry about anything :)

    Ah man, sorry to hear about that. Cancer is such a bitch. I'll just leave it at that. Is it operable?

    I know what you mean though, most of my relatives get on my nerves.

    Madinaz of course it's worth it. People are greedy, you are greedy, it's a human trait, selfishness. but we also have really good traits which become "Christmas spirit" and you can find that everywhere too.

    I love Christmas, i love buying things for the people i love. Damn, you people need some Christmas spirit =/

    go sit by the fire and watch some christmas films, make some time off your computer to get your pet some attention or read a book to your kids.

    Those are the true feelings of christmas.

    I'm glad I dont have kids so I can have xmas day as just another day. Might eat a bit better and drink a bit more but I'll be building and pimping same as every other day. One good thing about xmas is if other people are taking a few days off you get a few days up on em ;)

    Sorry to hear about your illness madinaz, take care of yourself.

    Good luck with fighting the cancer, stay strong and you will win.

    As for Christmas - I love it for the sole reason its a time when I can watch my kids and their faces lighting up with every rip of the paper and a time when I can get my family into the house and cook a big dinner for us all. Saying that, cooking for 9 this year so not as bad as 15 last year :)

    Enjoy it anyway you can - its a holiday afterall and who doesn't like a holiday :D

    Well, Christmas is a total abd utter hoax.
    Jezus was born on June 17th, most likely 2 BC.
    So the religious meaning behind Christmas is fake.

    Besides, it's the feast of the consuming-mad people who feel obliged to buy presents for each and every sould even glaring at them that day.

    BUT - I still come togethr with my family for the comfort, joy of being together, and for tradition's sake.

    Word :)

    You can actually watch christmas films

    Cant discuss my real thoughts about Christmas, lets just say its not about Santa Claus.

    I have a 4 year old Daughter and that keeps me interested in the season, If not for that not really. I always tell my wife dont get me anything for Christmas, I dont want anything. Ill explain why.

    I was shopping for my daughter and have a coworker with a small daughter, I got a hoody for my daughter and thought, wow it would be cool if they had matching hoodies, so it was $4 so I got it.

    I gave it to my coworker and just before we left he told me he felt bad as he did not get anything for my daughter. That was not what it was about, If you feel obligated to get a present for someone it is BULLSHIT, I dont want anything that is given under obligation.

    That is the part of Christmas that Gets to me, It means more to me to get a $5 gift anytime throughout the year, than A $1000 gift given because you have to at this time of year. I would rather have nothing.

    Sorry to hear about the Cancer, my grandmother beat 4 different types of cancer in her lifetime. Just fight like hell. I know you can beat it!
