Ive emailed and texted all my friends, and have told them I am not doing Christmas this year, so please do not get me anything. I havent liked how Christmas has gone for the last 20 years; Im tired of the commerciality of it. Im tired of it being about how much money people spend on others that certainly isnt appreciated or remembered, meanwhile people rack up credit card bills that takes them a year to pay off. Im especially tired of how it has become improper to put up Christmas trees in the mall, because someone might be offended. Im tired of not being able to say Merry Christmas, because it might offend someone. So I am not acknowledging it this year, I am going to slide right thru it. I will watch a few of the choirs on TV, because I really enjoy that. I will not put up any decorations, I will not have any special Christmas dinner. I will go to a service on Christmas Eve with a wonderful friend of mine. And that will be it. Hopefully it will be a wonderfully beautiful day here, as it usually is, and I can enjoy my day with my critters; my horses, and my chickens, and my wonderful puppies.
