    j/k, I know what you mean though. Christmas morning had a better feel when I was a kid and also the days leading up to it. Even the cartoons were better.
    I guess that now that I'm an adult I don't think of Christmas as a way to milk items from others. What a selfish way to think of how to celebrate the birth of Christ. I get the symbolism with giving gifts and everything, but in my family it's almost a contest of who can spend the most cash. I say it's a bunch of crap.

    Christmas is supposed to be about Christ, not buying stuff for everyone. It's more of an obligation these days than it is to help someone else feel good because you cared enough to get them a little something. Granted, if your heart is in the right place then kudos to you. If not, well... that's really none of my business, is it?

    Back on track though, we have a guy in town that leaves his lights LIT all throughout the year. I keep getting confused when it's 1am, I'm sweating because it's hot, and I see "Merry Christmas" lit up on his roof like it's December 20th. (December 20th is usually cold in Nebraska)

    Keep milking this thread like some of my colleagues milk calls, and it will be Christmas time.

    On a side note, Christmas is overrated. It has lost the meaning that it once had and quite frankly it sickens me. I like to pray on Christmas instead of blowing a ton of cash on crap that people probably don't want anyway.

    Yep, I'm a grinch.

    There is a house on the way to my parent's that leaves the tree in the window and lit until Easter. It is put up the day after Halloween. The outside decorations stay up there. I myself haven't decorated for Christmas in years. I always work Christmas and I live by myself.

    Kind of white trash. Reminds me of Randy Quaid in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Something he would do, if he had a house.

    We did once, but afte a while the houses looked tacky...If a hurricane comes by we would have to take it down, putting up the shutters is a PITA itself...
