…on the bus, in line for lunch, or on the street. What do people say? What do they really sound like?
Lately, it’s been all about Christmas which makes sense considering it’s right around the corner now. People talking about where they’re going, who they’re seeing, what they got them, when they’re celebrating it, and why they aren’t looking forward to it. Which I find pretty funny considering how many people complain about the Christmas season and can’t wait for it to finally be over and done with.With so many people who complain about it, it’s interesting how the holiday season has managed to survive the way that it has for all these years. In fact, it seems to get worse with every passing. Personally, I chalk it up to social obligation. Nobody wants to be seen as a Scrooge (me excluded), so they go along with all the hoopla of this yuletide disaster which means other people follow suit as well.Of course, there are those that really do enjoy Christmas but those people are freaks or are insane and shan’t be included in this completely biased opinion piece.
Behind the Random: I don’t celebrate Christmas unless it is a mandatory obligation that I can’t get out of without repercussions, such as a staff party or family dinner. My feelings for this season are so passionately negative that they border on complete and total hatred. For a while, I was one of those people who would get all huffy and puffy when someone wished me a Merry Christmas, to which I would retort “I don’t celebrate Christmas.” but as I got older, I realized that I was just looking like an asshat so instead I merely nod. People accuse me of being a Grinch, which is hardly the case since I have no problem with people celebrating it, no matter how ridiculous I find the idea, I would just rather not be included in the festivities which would make me more of a Scrooge than anything else. To which I say, “Bah humbug, I’ll take it.”
