I decided not to post anything about the holidays before the holidays because I didn't want to further bum anyone out who was already kinda bummed out.
I hate Christmas.
Well, maybe I don't hate it, I just don't care for it. Christmas is just....meh. Why?
I have no children. This is stating the obvious. Christmas is such a child centric holiday and I just feel left out most of the time. I also have no nieces or nephews to dote on (although I'm still unsure if I will be able to muster the grace to dote on nieces or nephews when that time comes)
I don't get any presents. My family has evolved from presents to trading names to trading gift cards to nothing. We decided that spending time together was more important than gifts. The only problem is that we forgot that we really don't enjoy each other's company that much.
I hate the coworker-gift-dance-of-awkwardness. It's obvious to me that some folks enjoy buying gifts for their coworkers. I'm just not into it. If you get me a gift, then I have to run out and get you a gift. I hate it when someone gives me a gift and I haven't gotten them anything. Gift giving at the office is like orgasms. It's best when it happens simultaneously.
I think that the best I can say about the holidays is that they are over and I survived. I hope you did too!
