News room: 10 Slightly Depressing Quotations About Christmas

10 Slightly Depressing Quotations About Christmas by Jessica Barrah

“All I want for Christmas” has been on repeat in the shops since September – and all you want for Christmas is a little peace and quiet. As the season of advent approaches with its cash tills jingling all the way, we gather together some rather downbeat quotations about Christmas, just for once.







1. “I walked inside Macy’s and faced the pathetic spectacle of a department store full of shoppers, none of whom were shopping for themselves. Without the instant gratification of a self-aimed purchase, everyone walked around in the tactical stupor of the financially obligated.”
― Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares


2. “The worst gift I was given is when I got out of rehab that Christmas; a bottle of wine. It was delicious.”
― Craig Ferguson


3. “Ever since the Christmas of ‘53, I have felt that the yuletide is a special hell for those families who have suffered any loss or who must admit to any imperfection; the so-called spirit of giving can be as greedy as receiving—Christmas is our time to be aware of what we lack, of who’s not home.”
― John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany


4. “It struck him that how you spent Christmas was a message to the world about where you were in life, some indication of how deep a hole you had managed to burrow for yourself”
― Nick Hornby, About a Boy


5. “Although it is pleasant to think about poison at any season, there is something special about Christmas, and I found myself grinning.”
― Alan Bradley, I Am Half-Sick of Shadows


6. “I felt overstuffed and dull and disappointed, the way I always do the day after Christmas, as if whatever it was the pine boughs and the candles and the silver and gilt-ribboned presents and the birch-log fires and the Christmas turkey and the carols at the piano promised never came to pass.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar


7. “The Little Drummer Boy" was playing in the background for what seemed like the third time in a row. I fought off an urge to beat that Little Drummer Boy senseless with his own drumsticks.”
― Dana Reinhardt, How to Build a House


8. “I stood for almost an hour in a line of shuffling, bitter – eyed late mailers (Christmas is such a carefree, low – pressure time – that’s one of the things I love about it),…”
― Stephen King


9. “It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.”
― Dylan Thomas, A Child’s Christmas in Wales


10. “Christmas ought to be brought up to date,” Maria said. “It ought to have gangsters, and aeroplanes and a lot of automatic pistols.”
― John Masefield, The Box Of Delights

    That is hilarious. I love this period of time, everything is so festive. I suggested a very “cute” article about Christmas for Canadian Edubirdie and it appeared to be awesome and so “cozy”. I used some of these quotes to make it more atmospheric.
