I suppose eventually someone's going to ask this, so I'll just get around to answering it here and now . . . Why is it that I really don't like Christmas?
Well, take a look at the reasons people *do* like Christmas. For one, they like the religious aspects. I'm not religious. Two, they like being in a house with family and such. The only family I've got here is my mom, and, well, as much as she's a nice person in some ways, it's kinda stressful being around her in a living situation and I don't really like it. Three, they get gifts. I'm not getting much this year. Mom and dad are broke. Four, they can be around loved ones . . . no comment.
And, of course, there's the other thing . . . that last year I was looking forward to spending a wonderful holiday with the one I loved(-d), and we're all sick of hearing about how that turned out, aren't we?
Christmas doesn't have anything for me except bad memories. Neither does new year's. Neither does my birthday. And I get all of them in quick succession, woooo.
Incidentally, still looking for answers to questions posed in last
