What's Christmas Like?

Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Merry Christmas, greets everyone. Merry Christmas! I greet back without really knowing what Christmas, or a happy Christmas, is. Beyond the gifts and the glitter—things I admit I enjoy—that come with this special day, what is Christmas really like? For somebody like me who has never known or celebrated it, Christmas is just another ordinary day.

When asked how I will spend the holidays, I think of coming up with lies so I won’t have to explain myself and my beliefs (or the lack of them). It is hard to make people understand when you know that your views are so different from theirs and when you know that it is better to just keep your mouth shut.

happy holidays to include: happy kwanzaa, merry christmas, happy hanukkah, merry solstice day and merryFSMmas.

except for solstice day, all of them are made up. pure fiction! but like a good book of fiction, there is no reason not to enjoy them. :)

Merry Christmas, A. and it doesn't really matter what Christmas is to you... i know that it's the season for you to have a long break from work... that's if you're not working on DB's lessons. :)

and you don't have to explain anything, real friends do understand even without the explanation.
