#Blogmas2016 - Day 4

🎵Have Yourself a Merry Little Blogmas🎵
Yesterday I posted about what Christmas means to me, and I revealed that today's post would be what I don't like about Christmas. To be honest, there's not much I dislike about Christmas, but do revolve around a similar theme.
I don't like the stress that builds in November and reaches crescendo about a week before the big day, who should I get gifts for? What should I get them? Will they like the gifts I've got? What's an appropriate amount to spend? Can I afford it? When I start thinking about Christmas, it's usually in November all these questions start to bubble away and with all the talk about the big day, the pressure on each question intensifies until the last week when I breakdown and accept the position I'm in. I go through this cycle every year, so i'm used to it, but it's still stressful.
The second thing I don't like about Christmas is people trying to out do one another and being expectant of gifts. Christmas shouldn't be a competition and people shouldn't compete to spend huge amounts on each other.
Glad I've got that off my chest! Back with some more positivity tomorrow, I'll be doing my post covering the past week.
