Something about the whole Christmas season just irks me constantly. It’s like nobody cares about the wintery aspect of Christmas, probably because most people don’t get enough snowfall anymore or they get too much. Also the whole, BUY BUY BUY IT NOW FOR YOUR GREEDY OFFSPRING! Too much snow and it’s a hassle and a problem that needs dealing with and with too little snow it just doesn’t feel like Christmas. I want to go outside and get frostbite from hours of intense Snowball Wars, sledding and one-horse open sleigh rides!
What happened to evenings of sitting in front of the fireplace with a cup of cocoa and a blanket cuddling your cat/dog/hamster and watching one of the classic Holiday movies! That used to be the pinnacle of my year, nothing else came close in my book. Well…maybe when school got out for summer…eh. The only thing I really hated about the Christmas season was “A Christmas Story”. I really liked the movie, except for the little brother. OH.MY.GOD. Scut Farkus was more appeasing to me, and that guy make me want to put a knife through his forehead.
Did you know that the actor who played him, Zack Ward, was in Transformers? He dies fast. I lol’d.
This Christmas is the first I have ever not celebrated it with my family. Right now I am alone in my apartment looking for a job(with no luck) and a tiny Christmas tree. It’s a tad disheartening not being with my dad or my mom or of course the rest of the family, but I really can’t say that I hate the predicament that I’m in. I miss the warm feeling that once came from putting up the Christmas tree ornaments and decorating the house with tinsel and tree needle pollution. Also massive snowball fights with my friends and romping through my woods. But since I’m an adult(lol) the time for playing is, unfortunately, over and I have to tend to matters of a more…mature nature. Now if you’ll excuse me I must be off for my rendezvous with the Barney Christmas Special. EEEEEH OMG HE SO AWESOME!
