I don't like the hectic nature of Christmas. The pressure of buying things for others that they might not want or need. The debt many go into so they can buy all these gifts.The stress of getting together with family members, that you don't have a desire to be around, because it is "what you do at the holidays."
Make Christmas a time to reflect on all you have done in the year. Take time and celebrate as simply or as lavish as you choose. Remember to be grateful for all you have. Listen to a good Christmas song or two, and maybe sing along.
"Christmas and New Years is a time to celebrate our lives, be reverent, to give and center ourselves in the energy of illumination, love, and wisdom. A celebration of the past, present, and future!"--John C. Bader http://responsiveuniverse.wordpress.com/2013/12/24/what-does-christmas-mean-for-a-buddhist/
