Each to their own I think. Plenty of us don't celebrate Xmas as such and whilst some like to look back on The Good Old Days, there seems little point in doing so if it only makes you feel unhappy.
Mike's post is the usual mix of loneliness and random comments so nothing different there - some posters like his ramblings and most are aware of his propensity for setting cats amongst pigeons and then apologising profusely when things get a bit heated.
Don't see the point in continually picking him up on what he posts ( unless he is discussing garden related matters and you happen to disagree ) - otherwise, let him get on with it and enjoy your family, friends, Xmas or WHY.
I'm not a fan but Mr. Allen is here to stay whether you like it or not and at least he isn't trying to flog roofing materials, jungle roasted rabbit, etc.
