I know Thanksgiving or Thanksgivikkah(thank you, Robyn) is not here yet, but I am already sick of Christmas.
Sick of all the TV and internet ads.
People putting up trees and lights and posting pictures on the internet.
I hate the commercialization of Christmas.
Some of the same people that write "Tis the reason for the season" are the same ones that spends shit tons of money on gifts.
Which, good for you, if you want to and you can.
But, what happened to Christmas is love?
Last time I checked love did not come in a box.
My husband was raised getting tons of gifts for Christmas.
I was not.
He thinks it's a lean year if we can't buy tons of things.
Which is pretty much the norm.
I'd rather give a gift just cause rather than because I have to.
I used to mail Christmas cards.
I barely got any.
I never even got a thank you.
Is a thank you so hard?
I know. I know.
But, I put thought and effort and a thank you to show appreciation is nice to get.
Last year I really didn't care about getting a tree.
This year I don't either.
We don't celebrate the religious aspect of it.
I just I might as well start saying " Bah Humbug!"
