Almost Officially Over It

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!"

  1. Amen! The past couple of years it's been gift cards and will probably be the same this year.

  2. I started hating Christmas before Halloween. Actually, I've pretty much hated it most of my life. I like looking at and smelling Christmas trees, though, especially the real ones. =)

    I hope you experience some holiday love, Ruth.

  3. Thanks, Robyn. Christmas has never been my favorite holiday. We get a real tree. When Kiddo was little we used to head to a tree farm and cut one ourselves. Then the people got old and it closed. Now we get an already cut one from Menard's.
    Happy Hanukkah!

  5. Bah Humbug to the tenth power - or to infinity and beyond.

    I'm with you on this one, Ruth - I give all year long as needed, when needed and because I want to. Not because some date on a calendar says I have to. And… who decided all the dates in between also - take Mother's Day - I told my daughter that that's the one day in the year she was welcome to forget me because I expect her to be there, in some capacity, the rest of the year… when and if needed; just like I am there for her.

    I may not say it in person, as we've never met, but I really have enjoyed out bantering out her and consider you a pal - consider yourself deeply hugged, even if it's a cyber one.
    With love and joy… your friend, Jenny. Oh… and Happy Bah Humbugging to you!! (hehehehe)

    1. Sara, I've always been more of a Halloween fan.

  8. I think for most, expressing appreciation is like having a tooth pulled. I gave up long ago on that point, and as to the cards and presents, that's always on a whim and a prayer these days. Since feedback is usually non-existent, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Have a happy Thanksgiving, Ruth. I'm very thankful you're part of my blogging experience.

  9. Christmas truly is such a crazy and stressful time for so many people that it is just a bit sad.
    I too love giving gifts "just because" and have already given several christmas gifts early, just because
