Home. Probably in bed watching movies. I've never quite understood the big hoopla over a calendar date change.

So you don't celebrate anything based on a calendar like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc?

For the most part, this is me too. I think in general holidays are way too overhyped and I just can't stand how commercialized Christmas has become over the years. As an atheist, it's even harder for me now to even care that much about Christmas at all.

The best part for me though is getting some time off from school to relax.

Even as someone who believes in God, I'm getting Christmas fatigue. It's too commercial. Too busy. Come New Years eve I'm ready to relax at home with some food and watch the Penguins game then maybe a movie before I sleep. I have no desire to go out all wild and crazy. There is something to be said about low key.

I'm probably going to stay home and watch something on Hulu. I still have to work the next day and I'm over the whole partying on NYE thing.

I will be having tasty beverages, (not uncommon) hanging by the fire with my wife, and a few close friends. Pretty much like a weekend. I try to ignore the Christmas overhype and treat it more like Thanksgiving. I'm fortunate because I'm doing ok financially, and I have a great life because of the people in it. I think remembering not to take these things for granted and to consciously be thankful is very important. (I weeded out some not-so-good folks this last year, including an old friend and my father.) My wife and my two stepchildren come first. Always. I'd be lost without them.

I feel the same way. It has become almost completely secular, so it is easy enough to celebrate it and enjoy the good parts. What I hate most is the annual "War on Christmas" B.S. and hearing how I am trying to rip away people's beliefs/rights/all joy in their lives. It's exhausting. As if the social pressures and expectations around gift giving weren't bad enough, now simply saying "Merry Christmas" has become a political statement.
