Bah Humbug!

I hate Christmas, I hate the madness that comes with the season. Everyone going on a crazy consumer frenzy; people putting on a front pretending that they are having a great time; the over indulgence of the season. Christmas really has lost it's original meaning; I recently heard about someone who had trouble finding a religious Christmas card in Clinton Cards; the sales assistant was apparently a bit confused at the request.


I also hate it, because of what it reminds me of; I remember the look of sadness on my parent's faces on a really poor Christmas day, all because they couldn't afford a lot of gifts. It reminds me of disappointments and promises that were never kept; and it reminds me of how isolated I've become.
