Thread: What happened with the Season?

  1. #1

    Default What happened with the Season?

    Everywhere I go this holiday season, whether it be the stores or online, I hear people complaining "It doesn't feel like Christmas." Personally I have several reasons as to why. Weather is too warm, political correctness, the state of the economy, and world affairs with ISIS. I even went out and volunteered with the Salvation Army to get in spirit and it worked. With some jolly Christmas music and the act of helping and giving, I really did feel like Christmas was once again upon us. Of course, I became the annoying Buddy the Elf of my friends and coworkers but the feeling was there nonetheless. So what about you guys? Why do you think it doesn't feel like Christmas?

    I've always felt this is more of an individual perception thing than a global thing. As you grow up, Christmas becomes more and more just another day. This is especially true if you have no kids in the family any more and arn't religious. I actually enjoy Christmas time because I spend a bit more time with family and take some time off work, but Christmas itself doesn't hold the same excitement it once did. We're all adults with reasonable financial resources, we do some light gift exchange and have a nice meal, but it's no longer the highlight of the year that it is as a kid.

    I imagine modern kids are just as excited as we were, and parents with kids are having just as much fun, but everyone else is looking back and saying "this doesn't feel like when I was a kid".

    Personally I don't feel like it's really Christmas until I hear the gently falling snow-shower of complaints that "Christmas isn't what it used to be" "too early" "too commercialised" "the council's lights display is no good this year" *giggles*

    More seriously, the real reason Christmas doesn't feel like it should is because we are no longer children. We can't make "what am I going to get in my stocking" the focus and limit of our attention any more. We have responsibilities and an awareness of the wider world - we have to worry about not just "will my dad like his presents?" but "will my dad feel lonely if I don't spend Christmas with him, since he has no other family near him this year?" (in the end I decided I would feel to guilty to do anything else.) I worry "will I have a job in January?" and "is there anything that can be done for the Syrian families looking for a room in a refugee camp?" This is what it is to be grown-up though, and despite being an whole-hearted ABDL I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Glad you found a way to feel seasonal in the end Binky :-)

    Tidings of Comfort and Joy everyone!

    For me .. any time it's cold out it feels like Christmas .. but then ... I was born in Florida rofl.

    I personally enjoy Christmas no matter who I am with. I also am not religious in anyway shape or form. XD Still like it though, as it involves people getting together .. and it can really show humanity at it's finest at times, which can bring me a warm smile to my face. It's the only time of the year where you get to see this a lot more than all the drama that is going on.

    Yeah, Christmas losing its magic is one of those crumby parts about growing up; even as an adult baby I can't really enjoy it the same way. It might be better if I could be completely babyish at Christmas and get babyish gifts, but living at home I'm kinda limited.

    I also live where we're experiencing warm weather right now, so that probably doesn't help too much.

    It feels suitably Christmassy to me. I don't expect that much from it these days. I like seeing kids get excited about it. It definitely counts for them.

    Yeah, this. Our neighborhood is suitably decorated, and we've got a really nice tree this year. Straight, bushy, no dead spots. Can't even see the trunk. Our eclectic collection of ornaments kicks butt as well.

    If the weather cooperates, I'll take my usual pre-dawn walk around town to see the lights without all the bustle of traffic. "Cooperates" means no downpour, gale force winds, or below zero.

    In my case, it's more the weather. Snow in December is rare in the UK over the last decade or so, but we've only had one frost this year. 10C temperatures feel more like October than December.

    In Canada, we've been experiencing an unusually warm winter due to the El Nino effect.. Usually it's about -15 to -20 degrees Celsius this time of year. We're supposed to be covered in tons of snow by now. Today it went up to 10 degrees and tomorrow we will break the record for the warmest Christmas Eve ever. I went out for my run today in shorts and a sweatshirt. It just doesn't seem like Christmas without any snow on the ground, but being a runner, I'm not really complaining about it. I do feel sorry for the ski resorts and sporting goods stores. They must really be feeling it badly.

    IT depends on where I go and what is going on.

    I hear the Christmas music and start to feel the season only to be nailed in the back of my leg with a grocery cart from someone who is more important then anyone around them.

    Then I stop and think and realize that that is a person who need a visit from and angle.

    Then I turn down the next isle that is empty except for the Valentines day decorations that are being set up.

    I just go home and do my thing and find the spirit in my kids and a good movie channel with the classic Christmas movies on.
