so apparently, christmas starts in november this year. it seems every year that christmas shopping/music/decorations get started earlier and earlier. im not a fan of this, since my love of christmas has dwindled over the years, right down to almost deep hatred for this holiday that has become so pagan and commercialized. i guess if i had kids, i would see the fun in it. and i know what christmas means to me, but having everyone else around you make it to be something it’s not makes you lose sight of why we celebrate it in the first place.
it’s funny how people think you’re crazy when you don’t like things such as animals and christmas – it’s like you’re the worst person ever. haha. at least i still like kids, though!
every year i try to get my family and friends to join me in a Buy Nothing Christmas (http://adbusters.org/metas/eco/bnd/bnxmas/) but I never have any luck. I guess people assume that i’m too lazy/cheap to buy gifts, but i’m not asking for gifts either; i just want to enjoy christmas without the frantic shopping and stressful decorating, etc. maybe one day….until then, i’ll oblige the shopping, the baking, and (maybe) the decorating.
if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. or something.
