Top Ten Worst Things About Christmas

Christmas is a great holiday but damn, there are some weird/bad things about it.

The Top Ten

1 Santa isn't real

When I discovered Santa Claus isn't real, my childhood was done

Based on Saint Nicholas a real person. In ancient England man would dress up in green or blue cloak, he was called Father Christmas, he was not fat either he was a performer. He wasn't even for children until Victorian times.

2 He sees you when you're sleeping... he knows when you're awake...

Valid proof this guy is a stalker

3 People start preparing and talking about it loads in November
4 Eating and buying fruitcake

I heard they can break your teeth

5 They play Christmas songs in November

I don't like this either. I like a little Bing Crosby, Perry Como or many others right before Christmas, maybe a week, is fine with me. But to play it for so long makes it a drag for me. A local classic rock radio channel starts playing Holiday music on Thanksgiving day, then plays only Holiday music all day, everyday until January 2. It's too much for me too.

6 Greedy kids
7 Christmas crackers
8 The fact you have to kill a tree

Not if it's artificial. Me and my family always used a factory-made Christmas tree ever since my childhood. Say what you want about it not feeling the same as getting a real tree, but hey, at least it saves trees and money and no having to clean up pine needles on the floor afterwards. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 Sometimes you don't get what you really want

My gifts were always junk
If my nother says the present is for me and my younger brother, only he benefits
AND HE IS VERY BAD
ANNYOING
ARRGHH

10 Having to go to church with your school

HA! Not me we went singing carols outside a shop.

The Newcomers

? Christmas adverts starting in summer
? Forgetting that santa claus was originally called father Christmas and wasn't fat, wore a green or blue cloak.

The Contenders

11 You get presents

This is the worst things, not the best things

Htf put this here

12 You have to put up all those decorations that no one appreciates and take them back down
13 Christmas commercials

GEH every time I GO WATCH A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE A CHRISTMAS AD PLAYS BEFORE IT. MAKES ME WANT TO SMASH THINGS. - Iamcool

14 You can't escape from the Christmas music
15 You have to spend loads of money
16 You see your relatives
17 No school

Winter breaks are a Christmas miracle. Though, I have heard countries like Japan still have school during Christmas. Eh, I guess it means you have more time to give gifts to your teachers and best friends at school (though, the former only applies if you LIKE your teachers). - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It would be interesting to be at school on Christmas.

That's actually a good thing. School is so boring.

WHOEVER PUT THIS HERE! @@! DOESENT KNOW HOW BAD SCHOOL IS! @@ Who agrees with me! This is the best part about Christmas! - venomouskillingmachine

18 Giving underwear as a legitimate gift Giving underwear as a legitimate gift

The only time you'll ever see anyone be happy about getting underwear as a legitimate gift on Christmas is Mac getting it in FHFIF's Christmas special to prove that Santa is real. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

19 All the best video games get released in November and late October
20 People brag if they get something you really wanted that you didn't get
21 Over-crowded stores
22 It can snow
23 Disney's Frozen

Not just Christmas. they talk about it ALL YEAR ROUND!

24 The fake Santas everywhere
25 School In December

It feels like the teachers are more strict and the whole of december should just be holiday. - Harri666

26 It isn't a regular day
27 Many don't focus on its basis as the birth of Jesus
28 After Christmas letdown
29 The music
30 Displaying Christmas decorations as early as August
31 Shops constantly brag about sales
32 Forgetting it wasn't even a Christian holiday, it was originally called Yule and Catholics took it and made it Christian. Jesus wasn't born in December.
33 Getting nothing at all
34 Waiting for it
35 Toys R Us Has Closed So the Christmas Advert Won't Be on Anymore at Christmas.
