All I want for Christmas are calls from family out of state and time with local friends and family. The holiday seems so blurred by materialism. Plus I want an IWatch and a virtual reality headset. Oh and a Tesla. But that’s all. I don’t want to be like greedy people.
I’m not going to be cliché by saying that gift giving overrides the true meaning of the holiday. I’ll just say that giving and getting presents sort of serve as camouflage for what the holiday represents for many people. Wait, did I just…?
I enjoy the gift exchange process. And by that I mean hitting the stores on December 26th to exchange all of the junk I received and can’t stand and getting what I really wanted in the first place. People just don’t listen!!
Like I was saying, Christmas is about the birth of The Christ and spending time with family members with whom I can stand . I don’t waste any time at all on people who always seem to find a way to ruin the day for everyone. How am I supposed to enjoy my new virtual reality gizmo when the mood sours? How is everyone else supposed to enjoy the popcorn tins I gave each of them?
It’s a wonderful time. The most wonderful if you believe the lyrics of the popular Christmas song. Don’t be the complainer that brings everybody down, man. Just chill. I can’t believe I just wrote those words.
