Does anybody think you're weird for being on MMC...

I'm just curious, I tell people about how I'm a part of this MMC website and I explain it to them and I get a lot of "that's weird", does anybody else experience this? I don't tell everybody, just people that I'm close to and good friends but they all give me a look like wow you got problems...And it doesn't phase me but I'm just curious if anybody else gets this from people.

I don't tell many people. When I do, the response is usually more of a polite "really? that's interesting" type of response. But people who know me are used to my having rather eclectic interests anyway, so I think they just chalk it up with my other "idiosyncrasies."

I don't share about MMC with many only because they wouldn't really "get" it. We are a select bunch after all!
But, my family knows I like to talk Christmas all year so they just think it's great I have an outlet so I don't drive them insane!

I do get some "different" reactions also. Mine are more of a mix between what KG says and also what MerryCarey says. I get very odd looks and the comments "how interesting" a lot. Except from my husband, of course. What I got from him when I told him about it was that it was going to cause a problem. I agree that perhaps you do have to be careful what you are doing no matter if it is on the internet or in person but that doesn't mean EVERYONE is out to "get you." Of course, I ignored him. MMC is so much better than any website I can't even describe it to people. Everyone here is my Christmas family and I am thankful to have you all xo

Most people think I'm crazy when I tell them but they think I'm crazy most of the time any ways.

Wifey knows....my mom knows....my family and friends know I'm crazy about Christmas...but they really don't know about MMC....maybe a couple of friends do when they have seen me on it by looking at my computer. Yeah, they probably have given me the "your weird look", but the look I give back usually makes it's point.

I haven't told too many people about MMC as well. I told the wife and she thinks It's weird; she tells me that It's not normal to make "friends" with people on-line and talk to people that you have never met before. My kids and In-laws know I'm here on MMC and they just get a chuckle at me, and the things I do because they all know how much I love Christmas, so their not too suprised. Some people at work know that I love Christmas and am into everything about it, so they're not suprised when every once and awhile one of them will see that I have MMC up on my screen.

Every once and awhile, the guy I sit next to, looks over and asks me, are you listening to Christmas music? "Yuppers".... After 3 years of sitting next to him, he's gotten used to it. However he has told me that I am the very first person that he has ever met (as an adult), that listens to Christmas music, watches videos and surfs the net looking at Christmas related things, throughout the year!

I have always been a little different in regards to the way I celebrate and enjoy Christmas and the entire Holiday season. What can I say, I just Love it! I'm deeply happy inside that have found other people that feel and talk about Christmas, the same way I do. Granted, we have never met, and our relationships may be different, but I have made alot of friends here and some you have become very special friends to me here as well. Hopefully, one day, somehow, someway, I hope to find some point in life that we can finially meet. We are all of the same kindred spirit.....

My husband thinks I'm silly for loving Christmas so much. The ones I've told about MMC just look at me like I'm crazy. But, I laugh it off. I love Christmas and everything that goes along with it. They just don't know that they're missing!
