So this is... Christmas?

Well Christmas is almost over, with only three hours left here in Pennsylvania. A few things:

 

Does anyone else prefer Christmas Eve to Christmas? Christmas Eve seems to be the penultimate episode of the holiday season and Christmas seems to be the disappointing finale. On Christmas Eve you're looking forward to the next day like it's going to be some triumphant victory and after Christmas morning it's pretty dull. I suppose some families have some dinner party, but personally in my family we've sat around and played with our thumbs for the past 10 years.

 

Opening Christmas presents is actually pretty stressful, if you think about it. First off, you have everyone looking at you. You can't herd all of your presents into a corner and start tearing wrapping paper. Second, there's the possibility that you may have to pull off a bit of acting. Even if the gift is something you instantly know you'll never use, you're still going to have to look excited. "Wow, a feminine T-shirt with a New York Mets logo, thanks!!!" This is something I think we all do but don't outwardly admit sometimes.

 

Christmas music got repetitive. The problem is that radio stations continually play the same 50 pop songs for whatever reason. And there are about 500 arrangements of each Christmas song, 90% of which are bad. I'd like to see some less popular songs get some attention, such as March of the Toys.

 

Finally, I want to use this SUPER POPULAR blog to highlight a few cool people who had to live under the limelight of Jesus for their entire lives...

 

Today is also the birthday of:

 

Issac Newton! (1642)

Humphrey Bogart! (1899)

Rod Serling! (1924)

Jimmy Buffet! (1946)

 

I'm looking forward to New Years... anyone got a date? :love:

Excuse me? Thank you all for the gifts, but I'm just going to take this one, and this one, and this one, and... well, I'll be back for the rest... no, this one too... over there and absolutely destroy the wrapping paper and shred the packaging ALONE. Like an animal, you say? Yes, I'm an animal. Now go back to opening your box of bow ties and sipping your orange-macadamia-and-peanut-butter-frappachino and leave me alone. Grrrrrr. :evil:

 

 

 

 

I agree with you on just about all points. Opening gifts can be stressful, especially if you don't like being in the limelight. But it's also nice to see people open gifts from you and know they really love what you got them. And yeah, seeing as Christmas music starts playing in stores and on the radio even before Thanksgiving these days, it's bound to drive some people crazy. That's why I burned all of my radios and wear earplugs whenever I go outside. People call me crazy... I'm just a forward thinker!!
