  1. When I was young,I really enjoyed Christmas. Now,I can't wait for it to be over! Too much work,no time for family.

    How about you?

    The year I retired was the first time I was able to enjoy Christmas in at least 20 years. UPS sucks the life out of you at peak with nothing left to enjoy Christmas.

    It all depends on the attitude you go in with, as to the attitude you'll go through Christmas with. Will it be all sugar plums and candy canes, no, but the majority of time I'm jolly.

    The "You ruined our christmas" tidalwave put the final stake in it's heart for me last year.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Used to look foward to it myself now I absolutely hate it. Can't enjoy it at all between getting beat like a dogg, not getting enough sleep n getting home at 11PM every night, pretty much blows really. Can't wait for the nightmare to be over in 13 years lol.

    I was never much of an xmas guy anyway, but UPS made me actually dislike it. The paid day off is nice but other than that the only good thing about it is when it's over.

    Used to love Christmas as a kid (duh) then as a young adult, I loathed it. Working in the industry didn't help either but since I had kids, I find myself loving it again, despite getting my :censored2: pushed in on a daily basis from the last week of November till the 24th.

    Got that right! We get a lull in March and maybe the beginning of April....then summer peak starts (it used to start the end of May) and rams us again till the end of September.

    I remember when the day after xmas it was like turning off a faucet, we would run a skeleton crew between xmas and new years and then the following week it start picking back up but there would still be plenty of days off available. That's gone now too, peak basically runs through mid January.
