I've found that the holidays are more about resentment and "look what i can buy" than anything else...atleast i can say that about THIS
country...can't say so much for anywhere else since i've never lived there.
Between Dec 23rd and Dec 27th - i can't begin to count the # of miles i logged traveling from place to place...all because everyone "insisted" that
my wife and i show up.
Didn't have any fun at any of our stops, had more stress driving in the hideous onslaught of snow (midwest got its fair share recently)
i mean...the holiday's suck man. Especially Christmas. Macy's and Sears have turned us into 4 a.m. "sleep out in a tent the night before"
In a country where people will literally trample a fellow human
so that they can get the latest thing-a-ma-jig that plugs into the wall and makes a whirring noise...its not a wonder that several other
countries point and laugh at our larger-than-necessary behinds and over zealous religious beliefs.
on top of all of that, there are so many people on the raod who drive like they've never been in a car before. Omg i feel my blood pressure
beginning to rise just reliving it.
This country sucks so bad when Holidays come around.
And for that reason alone, we have made the solemn vow to never travel for Christmas again. Any relatives who care enough can come see US for a god
