There are a lot of things that can influence this way of thinking.
1. They have had a bad experience.
2. They are lonely
3. Christmas has a bad meaning to them.
4. Someone has given them a reason to hate it.
I love Christmas. But, I don't like all of the pressure. If it were up to me, I would spend Christmas quietly. I would like to make it a time of reflection to remember the loved ones that have departed earth. Both of my grandparents passed away within one month of Christmas. It would be nice to spend it with my immediately family, baking cookies, making traditional recipes passed down from generations. But instead, I am uprooted every year and thrown in to a pit of drama. So while I love Christmas, I am also a ba hum bug. I don't like drama. I don't like being forced to celebrate the holiday in the way others think it should be celebrated. I don't like the commercialism of it.
My ideal Christmas would be a lighted tree, candles lit in a dark room, a fireplace glowing, cocoa, and giving a few beautifully thought-out wrapped presents to my loved ones. Then reading poetry or talking about the memories of loved ones that have passed on before us. Discussing the true meaning of Christmas and then applying it to our lives.
Instead, we are forced out in to the dreadful cold, to drive hours away, to spend Christmas with people who wouldn't give us two minutes of attention any other time of year, so that we can watch a crowd of people have a present opening frenzy with no thought or appreciation in the gifts involved. Sad really.
So give me peace and quiet with a simple celebration any time.
Some people do not care for some of the so called "Pagan" traditions lumped in from early Roman "Saturnalia" festivals. I for one love Christmas, but I have seen the good will fall short the past few years. I think that the corporate merchandising stamp has sort of dwindled my festive cheer. But I'm still a huge fan.
