You're right my dear: these things don't have much to do with Christmas.I used to like it but now I find it incredibly boring and cheesy. The faux positivity, the overindulgence, the mini pizza leftovers that you have to eat the next day, the boring family gatherings and generic small talk, the fat uncle disguising as Santa, the kids crying because they're scared of Santa... (ugh can't stand kids)
I even muted the company's Whatsapp group so that I don't get to see another cringe-worthy Christmas GIF greeting card.
Who wants to see his coworkers and their children dressed in silly Christmas jumpers? One guy just sent a picture on the group of him and his family wearing elf pajamas. Felt like punching him in the face.
I actually used the bonnes fêtes de fin d'année (French pc term) on a distant Jewish relative to wish him a happy Hanukkah and he was just excited someone remembered to send him well wishesMerry Christmas to all
Double Merry Christmas to those of you who caved and now use "Happy Holidays" instead.

may your bellies be filled with turkey and wine and your cholesterol levels soar to new heights, and for those who attend mass go to the midnight ceremony because who’s got the energy to wake up at 9 and get dressed!
merry christmas y’all
One can choose to quietly refrain from celebrating Christmas, or anything for that matter. But to trumpet it out and overindulge in anti-christmasish manifestations these days is no more a sign of "social coolness", rather a Johnny Come Lately arrival.
