So after clicking around a little bit, I’ve realized that feelings toward Christmas and the holidays are, shall we say, diverse. Half of everybody loves it (yay, santa! yay, more food! yay, driving to grandma’s house! woo-hoo!) and the other half is a little more….well, a little more like this:
Trish: Hey Alex! I hear it’s supposed to snow tomorrow!
Alex: Snow? But it’s October…
Trish: ….Uh, no….It’s December….
Alex: IT’S WHAT?!?
Trish: Yeah…December 22nd…
Alex: IT’S CHRISTMAS AGAIN ALREADY?!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO *echo echo echo*
It’s also that time of year everybody talks about dying (I wonder how many more years my christmas lights will not-explode…), gets into debates on whether or not to say Merry Christmas* or not, and no one can forget about commercialism. All this lovely commercialism.
♫ It’s that time of year… ♪
So SANTA, HERE’S YOUR CHRISTMAS COOKIES
Here’s my LOVELY TREE
And we’ll all sit on our couches
And watch the shoppers go at it
Merry Christmas guys!
*You shouldn’t. Not everybody celebrates christmas, so leave your debate and deal with it. Besides, that’s what the all purpose ‘Season’s Greetings’ and ‘Happy Holiday’s is for. Although…now that I think about it, nobody ever says ‘Season’s Greetings’. Like, at all. What, did the card companies need a christmas-y phrase only they could use without it sounding weird? Those dang card companies. Always trying to take advantage of the less fortunate.
