I Hate It...
Christmas, that is. Always have and always will, but this time of year there just seems to be no getting away from it.
I'm not going to go on and on about it like I did back in 2005 on the day after Christmas. I was thinking of rewriting that piece this year and posting it again but thought better of it.
All I'll do is my traditional ignoring of the holidays and special events so many people seem enamored of. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter...I hate them all, so you won't find anything here about them except an occasional hateful post.
But no so with everyone else. We already have at least a couple bloggers posting what they must feel are their obligatory posts on the special event of the season.
At least Richard Marks was able to come out a little bit negative. His post of December 7 asked what the five worst Christmas songs are. At least he's moving in the right direction. I don't think there are any good Christmas songs.
Hold on a second. I think I'll take that back. There are actually two Christmas songs I actually enjoy. I actually don't mind listening to either of these any time of the year. Good stuff.
This first one I think would be obvious why I like it as it's done by one of my favorite of all time music groups.
This second one I actually heard the first time years ago on the old Simon and Simon TV series (remember that one?). For years I never knew who wrote it until I heard it on a local radio station a month or so ago and the DJ identified who it was.
Not to say that those two songs make Christmas any more acceptable. I just like the songs, despite their connection to Christmas.
Ok. Back to finding more reasons to hate Christmas now. Don't worry. I won't post those new reasons here, at least not now. Maybe next year.
