    I have worked 43, I despise the holiday with a passion. The materialism and this job have ruined it for me. I hope that one day it will be enjoyable again.

    Once you get out, you live your own life again.

    The enjoyment, of everything, will return.

    Trust me.

    After I did my 38 years, It took me a year or two, but I really get into the season now. I grow my beard out, I look like santa. I do most of the shopping, wrap 90% of the gifts and really decorate the house now. It gets better every year.

    It's not a total fix for the entire season but just take off on Christmas Eve. It's bliss not being there. :)

    I guess I’m not smart enough to amass a vast real estate fortune to fund enough hookers and blow yet.

    I agree. You can only make it stressful on yourself. I just empty one shelf at a time. First 3 hrs can suck. But it will empty
