The key word for me is "day." In other words, a day off. People get on my case for not putting up a tree. I have not put up a tree since I was 9 years old and I haven't missed that tree since.
This time of the year has not changed for me. I do not personally participate in the holidays. Holidays for me is comparable to being indoctrinated into a religion or cult. We were taught these things as children & I personally decided long ago to do away with childish things. You can celebrate any time of the year & make up your own traditions & holidays as you see fit as individuals. Most holidays are about propaganda & big businesses. The only purpose the holidays serve for me are days off of work.
