Now that Christmas is done and over with, part of me breaths a sigh of relief.
And part of me feels bad about feeling such relief.
I somehow feel like I should mourn the fact that Christmas is over and that it only comes once a year.
And I guess if Christmas was just celebrating Christs birth then I should and, probably would feel that way.
But everyone gets so caught up in the commercialized part of Christmas.
Now I will say that I don't think there is anything wrong with getting excited about getting people things (I probably say that because I have way to much fun doing it). =P
But the side of writing lists miles long about all that you want and what you could get just seems so insignificant and pointless.
Christmas is supposedly a time of giving.
Then why is it during this shopping season, especially during a sale people are racing to the shelves and almost killing each other over a stupid toy or something?
And why is this the time of the year when people are most stressed out?
I love to celebrate Jesus's birth and marvel at the fact that God loves us silly people enough to send his own son down to become one of us, and ultimately kill him. Blows my mind.
And I love buying gifts for people and giving it to them. And knowing that they liked it. hehe that's fun.
But I don't know. I wish I was 5 when I think about this kinda stuff. lol
I'm probably just being cynical and grouchy.
But yes, hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! I really do mean it too! =)
