Am I getting old?Keskiviikko 21.12.2005 13:17

I remember when as a kid, Christmas was something that you'd wait for the whole year, or at least half a year, the other half you would wait for your birthday :)

Now there's three nights till Christmas and I still haven't got any sort of Christmas feeling, anxiety at most. Still haven't bought any of the few christmas presents I'm going to give, probably 'cause I don't have any money until paycheck comes on friday. It's going to be fuckin' hilarious to try to get all the presents bought in four hours, 'cause this week I have the evening shift from 14 to 22. Well, I don't think that there's going to be so many people in the city on the eve of Christmas eve.. (yeah, right).

Well anyway back to the subject, I don't know is it the commerciality or what that has taken away my christmas spirit. I just don't think that it's very reasonable to start selling and advertising christmas in the middle of June. Then after Christmas the sales begin and continue until June. It's a vicious circle. This is starting to sound a little hypocrite, but people have, including me also, forgot the meaning of christmas. Whether the true meaning is the pagan feast or the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

The last paragraph was so hypocrite that I want to puke.

The point, before going hypocrite, was that when I was a kid, the Christmases were full of joy (probably 'cause of the presents), staying up so late that you wanted (a big thing to a 7-year old) and holiday from school. Nowadays it's full of stress and asphyxiation from all the commercials of wonderful new toys that will eat, drink and go to take a dump for you.
Merry Christmas indeed.
