A Christmas Message


I'll let that sink in before I go on.

No, really.

You ok, now? Good.

It seems that people have slightly misunderstood my attitude and general tone of late, in relation to Christmas. The term "Scrooge" has been used quite a few times and to be honest, it has really pissed me off. Not once have I been against it all. Not once have I said "Fuck Christmas" or wanted to kick the whole season in the face.

I love Christmas when it's done properly. The only problem I've had this year is that I've just not been able to get into the spirit. Read that last sentence again. Now think about Scrooge. He didn't want to be in the Christmas spirit. He hated it all. I, on the other hand, just haven't been able to get into it. I've just had too much to think about, mainly the immediate future, as in a few weeks I'll be out of a job and so far my plans and hopes haven't really progressed, so stressed really isn't the word. There has been other stuff going on as well, so it's just been hard to get into Christmas this year.

Today has been good, though and I'm now back at home, having a peaceful night to myself and despite not being as Christmassy as I had hoped to be, I tried. I even said "Merry Christmas" to people. People I don't know. Some of them said it in return and smiled. Some of them didn't bother. So, who's the Scrooge?

Anyway, enough! I just wanted to say something. Now, I hope you've all had a lovely day and even if Christmas isn't your thing for whatever reason, I hope you have had a nice day doing other stuff.

Merry Christmas and thank you for reading!
