From the awful smell of peppermint to the annoying songs people play on repeat, Christmas is horrible. In fact, Christmas is the worst holiday of the year.

This disgrace of a holiday is vastly overrated.

Christmas colors are extremely ugly. Green and red are the absolute worst amalgam of colors. This color combination makes me want to barf because of how horrific it is. Although red and green are traditional Christmas colors and have important religious meaning in Christianity, they’re opposites in the color wheel which is why they are not a good mix at all.

The fact that parents lie to their children about Santa Claus for years is disgusting. Some kids cry they are so heartbroken when they find out that this magical man is not real. Not to mention, there is literally no point in telling them such far fetched tales. They still get gifts from their parents and other family members anyway, so what joy does receiving presents from a mythical man they can never see who that eats all their cookies bring young children that receiving them from their parents does not?

Children start to expect lots of gifts every year which begins to make them ungrateful. They are too busy worrying about what presents they will gain to think about giving to someone else or the true meaning of the holiday. Kids should be celebrating family and/or religion because that is the whole point of Christmas. However, a lot of them don’t understand nor do they care. Instead of thanking their parents for getting them gifts, they get upset about what they did not receive or about how little they got.

Christmas is not as great as everyone makes it out to be. Most of the traditional acts such as the songs, colors, and even the gift giving are all irritating and dreadful. This horrendous holiday should be banned all together. #CancelChristmas2020
