I am so over this Holiday. My family didnt celebrate it when I was a child. I started celebrating it when my kids were young, and in those days I
really tried. But, to drag all that C#$% out for a couple of weeks, then take it down and pack it up and then trip over it all year until Christmas is
beyond unreasonable. This year my adult kids all had somewhere else to be. Woo Woo I was sooooooo glad. Then at the last minute, about an hour ago, I
was informed their plans had changed and now I suddenly need to make dinner, and they invited people over. I flat told them no, its too late. Ive
asked all week and everyone had other plans. Sorry.
At one time I was able to convince myself that it was a Christian Holiday. But, it isnt. Its just a big giant guilt trip. The origin has nothing to do
with Christ. So to pile on top of my disdain for the Dead Tree and stuff, I almost feel like I betray my true self, and my true belief system. Its the
most depressing, demoralizing (to poor kids) and just plastic crap holiday. I buy and make my grandkids stuff all the time, so why is it my job to run
out in the freezing wet cold, and deal with over crowded stores full of other people who dont want to be there, all because we are obligated to hunt
down gifts that no one needs and will forget about tomorrow?
And it isnt optional. If you dont like it your an evil Grinch. If you dont support it, the economy will collapse. If you do support it and say Merry
Christmas your being hurtful to other belief systems. Im not trying to ruin anyone else's cheer, but am I the only one who really and truly hates
Christmas? Maybe if you dont "get" Christmas as a kid, then you will never "get" it? Because truly, I dont get it.
Im not doing it next year. Or the next, Im done with Christmas.
