Thanks for posting PRanea. I'm  hella late. Sorry this had to happen to you! I would be upset too. You should tell him how this makes you feel maybe he will change his mind. 



I tried. No luck. I think he's depressed


That may be. What I would do was when he was out of the house. Set up a Christmas tree, light, the whole nine yards, put on some christmas music, something happy like, Rudolph the Red Nose Raindeer(sp?) and surprise him when he gets home. Put some gifts under the tree. You just have to try and get him in the holiday spirit!! That should do the trick!!

eta: I just went back and read most of this thread. I feel so sorry you have
to go through all of this. If you lived close I'd be your family and we
could have celebrated Christmas together.

I hope you granddad comes to his senses and understand how much this means to you.




This would be very disrespectful especially since he has already said his reasoning is that he believes its a pagan holiday that shouldnt be celebrated...its almost like youre saying I dont care how you feel or what you believe I want xmas and dammit we will have xmas!!!

i like the idea of feeding the needy.  


My opinion will never change either. Prolly because my bday is 5 days before.

I get really sad when things end. Especially traditions

Omg. When Monk (the show) ended I was crushed. Because that was our show. Every thursday at 8. Me , him and pop corn.

Fortunately we moved on to Bones I was shook for a second.

that's a great show.  i've never met a young person who watched it. i heard about if from old pplLOL

Work to have your own family and build traditions with them, while enjoying the best of what you do have with your family now, would be my best advice. 

I don't celebrate christmas so a lot of my relatives would probably dislike me if I went home during xmas time. Which I wouldn't for that reason. My immediate family and I observe the passover and other things in the Bible and that has been our tradition for the past 10 yrs. 

This yr my birthday is probably going blow because we all have so much going on in our own lives, things are much different now so there wont be no big new yr's eve birthday bash as I normally do, but I'm happy for life and strength and knowledge and wisdom. It bees like that sometimes. Life is fragile, I lost family members this yr who won't even see a new year.  I'm happy to be on my life journey, and I'm a winner. 

Accept your life journey, accept that things have to move and grow and change as it is the nature of the world, and change with it for a better, stronger you. If you don't want something to change, you have to maintain it, or else it WILL change as nature intends. Change is growth though. As long as you learn from everything, the change is worth it. That's the lesson of life: to seek and find through changing of the mind.

Happy holidays to you PR, and everyone else. Hug

OP, is your grandfather not wanting to have anything to do with you visiting under any circumstance, or is it the fact that it's just Christmas?  Do you feel that your grandfather doesn't want to deal with you during Christmas because you are a reminder of past Christmas celebrations?

I think you should enjoy spending time with your grampa and fam. Enjoy your birthday and your hard earned vacation. Even if it is not the Christmas you want, try to enjoy what you have. You can still get cider and maybe start some new non Christmas traditions?

Who knows, he may end up doing some Christmas-y things after all.

Happy holidays to u Derri

@tokyo I honestly don't know. He's such an introvert. I can't read him

@ CC I'm getting him a record player because all his records were destroyed when our water heater broke in the early 2000s

Then I already got Louis Armstrong (sp?) Wonderful world on vinyl because its His favorite song in the whole world. And god forbid one day I will sing that song to him in front of a huge crowd.
