Advantages: The birth of Christ, Celebrating in the right manner
Disadvantages: Too much money spent, Too much drunkeness
You know, I don't actually mind spending Christmas on my own. Personally, I feel Christmas has become too much of a farce. Maybe I'm a bit of a baa humbug, but there are a number of reasons why I'm beginning to get dispondent about Christmas time.
Years ago, Christmas was a time of remembering the birth of Christ. People would dress in their Sunday best, and the WHOLE family would go to Church to celebrate this. A few simple gifts, games and a lunch would be sufficient. But, nowadays - things are well and truly different, aren't they?
The sheer madness of it all has gone way past my head! People are running around like headless chickens spending all their money and then some on the gifts their loved ones want or what they say they need. Shops are opening late because of this, and Asda have been open 24 hrs a day over the festive season.
People tend to think of Christmas as a time for partying, food and drink. Yesterday, I phoned my brother up to wish him Merry Christmas, and he was plastered! So, that cut short that conversation!
For these reasons, I'm quite happy to stay put at home on my own. Well, not entirely! I've got my dog, and she's good enough company for me! I seem to have had it up to my eyeballs with the whole Christmas palava. People drive me mad at the whole mad rush of it all. There's simply no need for all the rushing around and drunken stupors they get themselves in.
Now, I'm not saying not to have a good time and enjoy yourself. Far from it! I mean, it's the Lord's birthday, and this we must celebrate, like any birthday! But, it's the way we go about it that's all wrong! If we got things into perspective, and celebrated Christmas like Jesus would want us to, then I'd be quite happy to celebrate with others. But, until then, I'll be staying home alone and celebrating it in my own little way.
Thanks for reading this, an
d enjoy yourself!
