It's always depended on who I was with and who I've helped. Hope you have a good one this year, Tripps.

Tripps. Did Scrambler get your Thruxton? Merry Christmas Mr. Humbug.

I find your lack of Christmas cheer disturbing.

Celebrate on your own terms. Other people's traditions are theirs, they can have them.

I like getting gifts more than I like giving them. Does that make me a bad person?

I respect (and used to share) your opinion Tripps.
I found that by making it suck less for others, it sucked less for me.
I found that no matter how lonely, poor or disconsolate I felt, I didn't have to look too far to find someone in worse shape than I.
Society's commercialization and competition have made it difficult to enjoy.
Here's hoping for a brighter tomorrow and a safe and prosperous 2013.

A mate of mine was just killed in a plane crash doing a flyby with skydivers for a Christmas demo.

I'll ask his wife if Christmas sucks.

If you've got your health and the ability to make your own decisions I reckon that you ought to suck it up, not complain about it all. Just my opinion
