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?

For me, the best part of Xmas is getting all those presents out of the house and having all my storage space back. So I can start shopping for next year's gifts. sigh

Does the idea of "Giving gifts to people I know didn't buy me anything so I can see them nervously him and haw about how 'Oh, well, I got you this... Thing. Off of... Woot, or something... and yeah, darn US Postal Service." Because really, that's what I do it for. It's not Christmas, it's "Merry De Sade Day."

Going to church...the quiet...meditating while loking on the nativity scene. As they say in Home Alone "You're always welcome at church".

I answered presents because eating/the food was not a choice

126 Woots to date across all sites (now Woot! says I am better than everyone else) including 7 Bags of Crap...snagged a Big ol' Crybaby (#6) to secure my black square!

The poll specifically asked us to be honest. I don't think some of you are.....

As a non-christian (and non-jew, non-muslim, non-any-old-musty-book worshiper), my favorite part of Christmas is that it's only a few days away to when, about January 8th or 9th, that I notice the days are getting longer again. I can think about starting my tomato and pepper plants and know that the darkness is passing.

You are not the only one that treasures that sweet, sweet day off work.

We're really in need of an "other" option on this one. Time off from work, Christmas lights, food - the list goes on. Staying up late enjoying the Christmas lights and holiday snacks and then sleeping in the next morning because I have the day off...that's my Christmas present!

Really Woot!, Your asking the best part of Christmas without even including Christ as an option? What kind of heathen are you?

Being with those I love, being thankful for what I have (including a great job), and praising the Blessed Father for it all.

Please support my husband's wootwatcher that he programmed. He is Active Duty Air Force and in college for programming. He made this because I couldn't find a woot watcher that was simple, and searched keywords. So he made it for us to use, but you will love it! Also Mobile Friendly now! with super refresh times!
~Thank you for your support!~

I second that! And I'll probably do most of my Christmas shopping here at Woot throughout the year again, which means I'll start losing storage space again come January.

Seconded.

Also, I've always been fond of the copious giving (both to friends and family) - although I rarely can afford to give anything of proper value.
