I’ve gotta be honest here. Even though I’m all up for secret santas and watching the holiday specials on TV and spreading the holiday cheer, I actually hate Christmas. It’s a personal thing, really…
I mean, the whole point of the holidays is to spend time with your family and bond, right? Well, since I’m not too fond of mine, I could really do without the insane amount of time I’m forced to spend with them. And what about Christmas? For a holiday supposed to represent the birth of Christ, it sure is all about the presents. And you know what, even though I’m not much of a believer (I’ve given up on religion. It’s complicated.) I still find it ridiculous that I’m pressed to buy presents for my family who really shouldn’t be materialistic if they’re so goddamn religious. Talk about hypocrite!
Despite this, I still like to wish others ‘merry Christmas’ and ‘happy holidays’. Hypocritical on my part? I think not! Just because I personally don’t like spending more than 12 hours with my family at any given moment or being force-fed turkey through my nostrils, it doesn’t mean I’m going to spread my ‘bad attitude’ and be a total SCROOGE. Seriously, if I greeted you a ‘merry Christmas’ and ‘happy holidays’ I really meant it…Why not have a good time with your fam if you ACTUALLY enjoy their company? DO IT UP, I says.
Anyways, rant over. I hope that didn’t bum you out too much! I thought I’d tell you all this before I told you what a rather dull/crap/lame Christmas I had, haha. Thank you for all the sweet wishes though:) They made me try A LOT harder to make it a merry one!
