For me, it has to depend on my mood. Last year, I went out of my way to see a bonfire night which happens once a year to watch the flames and fireworks. This year I just wasn't fussed. I usually celebrate Christmas but family fueds and disagreements can often suck out the enthusiasm, but I would say this is more situational to my own circumstances. I've never bothered with halloween, but I have been tempted before now but one thing or another has stopped me (and that's if my mood actually cares that year).

I definitely 'celebrate' Easter! Chocolate eggs! :ecstatic: :happy: :whistle: I don't usually celebrate Easter in any way mind, but the shops are suddenly filled with chocolate eggs (that get smaller and more expensive as the years go by :cry: ), which is something I often look forward to. I often forget about Easter though, the first chocolate egg is usually a sign it's coming round the corner! :D

Birthday's I'm hit and miss about, sometimes I don't want to make a fuss of either mine or other people's birthdays, but then othertimes it's good to give people a bit of a break and a gift or two for their birthday. Other than Christmas, it's the only time where people really get a chance to have a bit of fun and be with family (or so it seems).

Yup. We usually celebrate birthdays of family and close friends, Christmas and the wife likes to celebrate Easter (I'm indifferent). I usually don't have a big problem with birthdays etc. (save some dread before I arrive) but most of the time I'm good for about 3 or 4 hours then I'm longing to find the exit. Every now and again I have a great time and don't want to leave. A few weeks ago I was at a party and didn't get to bed until 4am. I hadn't seen that group of friend for a few months.

This reminds me of my immediate family. Me and a brother can go weeks to months without exchanging more than about five words at a time usually, yet we normally reach a stage where we have a catch up and just socialise for a night. It's quite invigorating and relaxing. I can usually go a couple of days of non-stop talk because we've usually gone months building up things to talk about (good and bad alike). We also live in the same household, so it's a weird setup we have.

Years ago, I used to go wilderness canoeing/camping with a friend. After catching up the first day, we wouldn't speak much either. Only enough to communicate what needed to be done and the odd quip here and there. Now that was an awesome setup. We both enjoyed the quiet of the wilderness so much that neither of us wanted to spoil it with small talk. Many times very early in the morning we would paddle a river or into a marshy area to see moose and other wildlife. Rarely having to say a word.

Now that is bizarre...lol — but good. I don't get nearly enough time to myself these days. I miss the days of living on my own. Fortunately I've got spot up north to retreat to in the winter. My wife doesn't like the cold so it's all good! I can even throw my jacket on the floor and leave it there for the whole weekend... :happy:

I DO NOT celebrate holidays. I'm not religious so feel no need for them.
I don't like seagulls...
