Hope everyone has been getting fatter with all the millions of dinners with friends and family and friends and more families. Yes, its a little sarcastic. I decided to be very lame despite an invite from a friend and a family member for Christmas dinner. I opened a can of Pork and Beans w Molasses for xmas and decided to spend the entire day eating it, stuffing my face in misery.
I had no Christmas tree, no Christmas stocking by the non-existent fireplace, no gifts or cards prepared for anyone.
I was Grinch – but in a very pretty white dress. I thought it was I was the only one that despised this time of year, but turned out a couple of my gfs were just as lame. Maybe thats why we’re friends ( we celebrated Christmas individually). I had no Christmas gifts, maybe because I didn’t give any. My usual WaWa women gift exchange with my church friends from Vancouver didn’t happen because I decided to stay in Toronto for the whole damn last 2 weeks of December. So, until today – my friend Vince, visiting from London surprised me with a gift! My only Christmas gift. He got me a super duper cool scarf from Amsterdam. My reaction was a little off since I didn’t quite understand how the scarf worked until he explained it to me.
I just dont care. I know I don’t like Christmas. I’m going to stop lying to everyone that I do.
My favourite holiday is Halloween actually. But for everyone else that is super happy about family get togethers, smiles, drinking eggnog by the fire and playing songs on the piano – kudos.
My heart is barren for Christmas, unless its to be proud that Jesus was born on this day.
