As a non-Christian, I don't celebrate for the same reasons as many others, but it is a wonderful excuse to be with friends, family, and even total strangers, just sharing good-will and love.
My family celebrates the Christmas tradition, but usually not on Christmas day itself since we all have differing work schedules and have to work around them. So tomorrow, I will be looking forward to next Saturday, when my family will be gathering to celebrate togetherness.
I kinda enjoy it, but at the same time I often think, meh, when'll this finally be over? I'm just not in the mood this year, because it feels like I completely skipped autumn and summer and spring too. Didn't even notice much of this winter.
The only thing about this christmas that makes me feel bad is that I didn't have enough money to buy gifts for everyone, and even still, my gifts are very... well budget is an appropriate word I guess. I'm looking forward to what I'll be getting for some gifts though.

I love everything about christmas but the only thing I don't like is reacting after receiving a present. I am really happy and all, but they expect me to look really happt and excited (which I am) but it feels really awkward trying to exaggerate it.
I celebrate the "Czech Christmas": Štedrej Den is today so that means I get to open presents after dinner and not have to wait until tomorrow!! Buut if I was being traditional that would also mean not eating any meat today and then killing a carp for dinner... but I like my řízek too much not to eat meat.
