Beware : non-Gentoo post ahead, feel free to skip if you don’t care, I won’t hold a grudge against you.
By all measures, I can safely say I’m not really a Christmas-y fellow. I hate Christmas shopping because I’m really bad at it (or is it the other way around?), I give the rest of my family a hard time at Christmas since I never know what I want and I’m really hard to shop for (took me 3 years to find an MP3 player that matched with my needs).
And usually, just a few days before Christmas, I’ll turn into the Grinch: people on the subway carry even bigger bags than usual, people on the streets are way more careless than usual, ads and commercials everywhere overload my senses with Christmas references, etc.
So there, Christmas is not my favorite time of year.
I’ll just say that after my light lunch, I positively love Christmas.
Edit: To all the people who are trying to ruin my Christmas left-overs by trying to make me feel guilty about how foie gras is produced: take a step to realize that all industrialized agriculture works like this (especially eggs), not just foie gras. So unless you are 100% vegan, don’t even try. If you are vegan, then just forget I even talked about the foie gras and have a glass of Sauternes, I’ll happily share the rest of my bottle.
