I hate this time of year. I hate Christmas, I hate Chanukah, I hate New Years... I am a non-denonimational hater of holidays. I hate all the hype & hypocricy. I hate the expectations & ultimate dissappointments. Peace & goodwill towards men? Yeah, like THAT's going to happen. ONE of the things I hate is how this time of year has turned into all about how much the retail industry can sucker you into buying. And people fall for this crap year after year. It's like they try to make up for all their shortcomings or whatever with just the "perfect" present. Each year people, who can ill afford to, go deeper and deeper into debt trying to create the "perfect" holiday. Guess what people? DOESN'T HAPPEN. All that happens is that the Walmart family has another 0 to add to their net worth. Oh, and your gonna be paying for that shit until next Christmas. And if you don't have family or loved ones to spend the holdiay with, what the fuck is so Merry about that?
I think I've spewed enough holiday hate for today. We'll get to New Years eve another time.
**I'm not kidding. And believe it or not, I had a very happy loving childhood with very fond holiday memories.
