And so the holiday season begins. Bring on the holiday frenzy, the pressure, the traffic, the shopping, the people pleasing, the expectations, the disappointments, the crabbiness–not to mention the suicides that you get around the most wonderful time of the year. Ugh! It’s here!!!
I honestly wouldn’t mind the jingle hell so much if I didn’t get beat me upside the head with that ever depressing Christmas music that makes me want to box my ears in. I know people get into some Holiday music cheer. My guy loves himself an X-Mas mix tape, but no matter how I slice and dice it, Christmas time makes me curl my lips, bare my teeth and try to form a gosh-jolly-gee-grin.
I don’t know why I find Christmas music so damn depressing and annoying. Even the songs with some jumpy holiday cheer seem to rub it in the faces of those who have little to cheer about. I swear, one run of the Charlie Brown Christmas CD bouncing off the walls at my local Big Gay Starbucks in WeHo, and I’m literally ready to chew my right pinkie off and feed it to a dog. It drives me absolutely crazy. KERAZY, I tell you!!!
Of course, the biggest shit-kicker being that everyone’s in on all things holy, holly and jolly, so there’s no escaping it.
All I can do is my very best to get into the spirit this year like I do every year. But don’t get mad at me if I make a run for it the instant I hear “Hark, the Herald Angel Sings” brought to you by Charlie Brown and kids.
It will all be over soon.
