Am I the only one who ever never lost magic of christmas?

I never lost the christmas magic. the only problem with christmas is i always fear it might end up not being good. like this year i lost the digital tv so less channels=having to rely on the normal channels to watch tv this xmas.

i still get presents under the tree and even do a list lol. but all in good fun

I love Christmas and it's great to hear others sharing that sentiment
It's hard to pinpoint one exact thing, I just love the cold weather, the Christmas lights, the songs, the tree, the craic at home, in the pub and in the town.

Every year, I think more and more of my mates and people in general complain about Christmas and say they can't stand it. I think the fact that the ads start in October (earlier this year?) irritates people and they get tired of it quicker but I try and ignore all that until December.

I'm feeling fairly Christmas-sy this year. It's been a while, the last few have been fairly lacklustre...

Not feeling the festive buzz yet, but there's time... I think it's because it's rolled round so damn quickly this year - for me anyway.

Most years I get the Christmassy feeling, but the odd time I don't - until just a few days beforehand, then it always kicks in.

Yeah, I think Christmas was the bleakest in the years between my leaving home (and therefore being waaay too cool to care about such things) and when my siblings started having kids. Now I've been full of it (the spirit) from around mid November right up until the 2nd January. I drive my nieces and nephews insane

I just love when i get that first smell of christmas. People say i'm mad but i swear i can smell it! I've never lost the magic of christmas, i just love it, and see it as my mission in life to help others to as well. It'll be me who wales my nephew up at half 5 to see if santa has come... We still get our stockings and selection boxes etc. It's all so magical :-)

Jasus it really kicked off for me last weekend when I was taking the tree down from the attic. My three kids (6, 5 and 2) were at the bottom of the stairs singing Oh Christmas Tree at the top of their voices.
It was class, brilliant, they lifted me with their spirit.

Bring it on I say, bring it on.

I love Christmas !

I think it depends on what you're doing for christmas. Some of the xmas songs-eg mariah careys "all I want for christmas" kind of depress me because I was with my boyfriend last christmas and this year I have no-one

Im studying alot this xmas and not going out much so in comparison to last year when I was ice-skating with my boyfriend, going to xmas parties and rushing around buying presents, I guess you could say I was more in the xmas spirit last year, xmas had more magic.

I believe it depends on what you're doing for xmas that makes it magical or not.
