Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I like how everyone looks either really fashionable in coats or really huggable in sweatshirts.

Also: hot chocolate and an excuse to cuddle.

It's a toss up between the peppermint mocha's and the holiday lights!

I love the whole season...especially time spent with my family (we put the fun back in dysfunctional) and the blatant commercialization of a Christian holiday that was a blatant attempt by a cynical clergy to recruit by saying "yes, we have a festival THEN, too!"

This seems to be one of the few times a year when people consciously try to be nice to one another.

I love Christmas music. It comes in makes you feel good for a month or so (I refuse to start Christmas anything until turkey day) and ten it goes away. I also live the snow, but have seen much this year or last.

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

Buying gifts for the people I care about. I'm an atheist so Christmas is all about spoiling the ones I love. I have a son & 5 nieces & a nephew that I love to shower with gifts. Seeing them, open their gifts, wow. I like the decorations & yes, I put up a tree (no nativity scene) & we decorate the outside of our house.

Not my "lord and savior". If I was going to let my life be controlled by 2000 year old desert dweller fables, I'd pick a more interesting one with flashier magic (talking bushes and donkeys? boring! Healing tens and tens of people instead of telling them how disease works and saving billions. plague-bearer move! ) maybe something with genies

"The blatant commercialization of what should be a holy celebration of our Lord and Savior?"

Uh..... First of all, Christ was born in the autumn -research it. "Christmas" was an adaptation of another Pagan holiday by the church to get them to convert.

Second, what kind of ass would say something like that? If you don't like it, don't partake. Welcome to America, home of freedom and capitalism.


Also: Feast of Winter Veil, in years past. Now... Not so much.

THANKSGIVING !!! Love it....

Everyone argues way too much about Christmas. Celebrate whatever you want,or don't choose to celebrate...just stop forcing views on everyone. (shooting at malls isn't looking good either. God Bless those folks...)

Thanksgiving, way easier. Family & friends without the collateral damage.

Heck yeah! Rolling the remaining vacation days into your holiday days off and being able to tell people "See you next year, I'm on VACATION B#%@HES!!"

That's always AWESOME!!!
