All these happy wishes and lots of Christmas cheer is all I really want this year!
I got that line and the title from Family Guy. Been binge watching the hell out of it. I’m proud to say I have seen every episode now.
Ok, I am more than capable of understanding that a Christmas post is a bit too early but fuck da haters. Thug life.
Also, you might see less of me with gore but more on discussion posts. I have already have a line up that I might publish bi-weekly so stay tuned for that, Gorriors. Who coined that term, by the way? I already forgot. Refresh my memory.
So, I got a question last night: do atheists celebrate Christmas? Fuck yes we do! *High five, @obli* Even people whose religions don’t celebrate Christmas still kinda do celebrate the festivities. What’s so bad about it? You get together with friends and family, eat till you’re sick, drink you’re sick and exchange gifts and pleasantries and, for those with highly potent sex drives, fuck till you’re sick…hopefully not of gonorrhea lest you get featured here. Plus the weather is so lovely. I’d trade Christmas weather for summer any day.
If you’re a business owner, you might want to rack the shelves up with goodies because people spend money on things they don’t need most especially on Christmas. People gonna be looking for deals. If you’re a normie like me who spends money working for someone, discounts and freebies seem to be overflowing during the days where 12/25 is approaching because of clearance sales. For a single month, or even a week, you’ll see your hard-earned money pissed away. But, holy shit! That thing you’ve had your eye on for the rest of the year is 50% OFF! Great goddamn deals. I like to take advantage of those myself and live in poverty for the rest of the month.
I understand not everyone is fond of the holidays. Other people might have bad experiences about it like the loss of a loved one, people who can’t be with them for the holidays because of work or financial reasons, or reconnecting with an estranged parent who threw you out of the house because you told them you were gay or those starving children in impoverished countries. I surely would think they wouldn’t necessarily have a happy Christmas.
Yeah, the holidays have its ups and downs and both its good and bad. Surely, we all have had our fair share of losses whether it be a loved one, family or friend. I celebrate both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day with the family which is very enjoyable since we get to have the laughs and the discussion and reconnection and exchanging nice gifts and then move on and forget about each other for the rest of the year. For the few days in between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I commemorate my father’s death. He was cremated on New Year’s Eve. I think that was the saddest day of my childhood. So that kinda happened every holiday for about 10 years now and people say you’ll get over it but I don’t think anybody does, do they?
I’m gonna open this post for a discussion. How are you gonna spend your holidays? What is so good and so bad about it? Are you gonna make up shitty New Year’s resolution that you’ll only do for a week and forget about for the rest of the year? I’d really love to know what you are gonna and plan to do. Oh! Have you set up decorations yet?
Here’s the song from Family Guy:
