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

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.

Some start playing them on November 12 - flaggy0666

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

10 You get presents

This is the worst things, not the best things

The Newcomers

? Waiting for it

The Contenders

11 Having to go to church with your school
12 You have to put up all those decorations that no one appreciates and take them back down
13 Christmas commercials

Yes annoying, not everyone does Christmas - flaggy0666


14 You can't escape from the Christmas music

Yes every store you go to and raido, plays it, be the only way to get out of it is listen to music on your MP3 player or iPod or phone - flaggy0666

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 The fake Santas everywhere
24 School In December

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

25 It isn't a regular day
26 Many don't focus on its basis as the birth of Jesus
27 Disney's Frozen
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
