I think many of us have empathy, whatever our feelings.Seriously glad for you but a little more empathy for those who have clearly admitted to not feeling anywhere near as good about life or the up and coming holidays as you do would not go amiss tbh.
Personally, I dislike this time of year more than any other. I don't generally get anxiety but I worry about the stupidest things. Have we got the kids too much or too little. Is that bird really reserved? What if they run out of sprouts? It's stupid first world problems when there's war and famine on elsewhere but it seems to be all I think of for a good week or more before hand. Then it's always ok on the day and I spend it cooking, drinking, eating and playing one of my Christmas playlists inspired by @chaileyjem 's excellent Spotify selections. I'm lucky, I've got wife, kids and dog here and a roof over my head. I can well imagine what it would be like without though and I think even the most positive of folk on here can too.
With that in mind, let's give everyone the space to use this thread and talk to each other. It's not a thread to be dominated by a couple of people. Everyone will have different feelings, different experiences. It doesn't mean that they are not sympathetic / empathetic to you or anyone else.
