    not Scrooge as such but my parents didnt enter into spirit of things after me and my sister were grown up even tho they had grandchildren , they couldnt see why on earth i get so excited about the festive period but hey ho everyone is entitled to keep Christmas in their own way , just dont try and rain on my parade where Christmas is concerned oh and by the way my festive period is from Jan 1st to Dec 31st :)

    My mom has been like this for the past few years, hates to put up a tree (which is a 4 foot tree that she leaves decorated and puts a sheet over it in the basement and then just carries it upstairs at Christmas time so I don't really count that as "putting up a tree" but whatever!), she doesn't send out cards anymore, hates wrapping gifts (but she always hated that) and doesn't do any baking anymore. I know she figures her kids are all grown and she goes to the grandkids houses to visit so what's the use? But, my husband and I have no children and Christmas is a huge deal in our house (mainly due to me, my husband doesn't care either way but he is great at humoring me and playing along!) Christmas is more than just for kids; it is a joy and spirit for any age to enjoy if you allow yourself the opportunity!

    No Scrooges in my family :) I do have a friend that does. My friend's mom once said that Christmas is a "meaningless" holiday so she doesn't really care.

    I have an uncle who is not a fan of Christmas. He'd prefer family get together for a sandwich then go home.

    My husband. It's kind of lonely doing all the planning, decorating, and shopping all by myself. He helps get the tree and puts it up, but he couldn't care less about any of it. But, my daughter just turned 5 and she is my ultimate helper! We have a blast with Christmas and we will for years to come.

    I don't really think there's any Scrooge's per say, but people don't necessarily understand how I am so over the top into the season :D

    I don't really have a scrooge in my family, but my eldest sister prefers to have Christmas at one of her two children's houses so she doesn't have to put up and decorate a tree every year. She's the only one of my siblings that doesn't like decorating for Christmas for some reason.
