Stanleys Christmas Adventure (Flat Stanley, #5) by Jeff BrownWho will save Christmas?
Santa Claus is not his usual, jolly self. In fact, hes in a terrible mood. He doesnt believe that children appreciate Christmas anymore. This year, he has decided that he is not going to deliver any Christmas presents!
Luckily, his daughter, Sarah Claus, knows who to call for help. The Lambchop family! But can they convince Santa that there are still good children in the world? Just leave it up to Stanley.

I don't like Christmas anymore :(
Growing up, Christmas was always awesome because "YAY! These days I just can't care. I don't get much time off from my job, and if there are games I want, I can just buy them with my own paycheck. These days it just seems to be an excuse for my mom to stuff me full of fatty food that I'll spend January working off. Maybe I'm a unique case due to not much family, but for how many people has Christmas just gotten dull? OT: i personally don't care for xmas.
Even though I went to a Catholic school from kindergarten until the end of high school, school-time masses involved me siting alone in the pew while everyone awkwardly squeezed by me to get their host. We divided our time between family in Toronto and Thunder Bay, which often meant scary, cross province drives in insane blizzards, or super expensive flights coupled with suitcases containing only a spare pair of gotch and dozens of gifts. It was often very stressful. We continued to celebrate Christmas until the year before I left my hometown for grad school. We loved the lack of preparation and stress and rushing around. We still got to be together as a family but it was more relaxing, and on our own terms if that makes sense. It was liberating to to spend time together without having to pay homage to a date that held no significance for us.
I don't like Christmas as much as I did when I was a kid. I can sort of sympathise. I think it's different now we're adults, there's not magic to Christmas. I can definitely sympathise with the hermit bit and no job stuff, because it's like same old same old Couple of years ago I had two friends die on Xmas Eve, seperately. I was already over the "magic" part and never into the religious part, but after that all that Xmas gives me is candy canes At least those never lose their awesomness.
Well this was the first year where I realized I don't like Christmas. There are gifts, lots of it, but I don't really care cause they don't seem to know why we came .

I remember being a kid, and anxiously awaiting the arrival of Christmas morning. I started my Christmas countdowns in August, sometimes earlier. I decorated the tree with shiny ornaments and string lights, made sugar cookies for Santa, and left carrots on my front porch for all of the reindeer to snack on in case they got hungry. These activities are what made Christmas, Christmas for me. Key word being friends, and not family. I used to dance around my house and sing to Christmas music starting in October and continuing these dances and carols until the New Year. We forget that the little things in life are the things that matter the most.
Ask Your Question today. Well this was the first year where I realized I don't like Christmas. I think it's because of what it has become: a holiday for mass consumerism. I hate buying and getting gifts. I also don't have much of a family so yeah. I just merely believe in God but I'm not affiliated with any religion.
