I did not grow up with religion but my mother threw the best Christmas Eve parties and we always had beautiful trees. After I left home, I tried to keep the tradition going with my sweeties. So the event actually ended up being more of a special date night - even though the parties always involved friends and family.

I am single now and have been for some years so Christmas has not been celebrated.

Add to that the fact that we get bombarded with commercials and Christmas music rewritten with ad jargon and I've completely lost my interest in the holiday. From Halloween on until about the end of January I try to keep the commercial aspect of Christmas as far away as I can.

I am not a Grinch but the holiday season does little for me anymore and I'm always glad when it is over with.
