The holidays come
Parties, full schedules, travel
Is it over yet?
I don’t make it much of a secret that the “Holiday Season” is not my favorite time of the year. The sardonic way Christians go about “keeping Christ in Christmas” is part of my reasoning for this. If I have one more Christian tell me “Merry Christmas,” only to look at me and utter, “Oh are we still allowed to say that?” I may just scream 1.
Mostly, however, I dislike this season for it’s busyness. I have not had a moment to sit down and think for the better part of four weeks, and I’m beat. About this time every year I come to the point where I think, “Have I paid my debt to social convention yet?”
- Also, “Xmas” is not an attempt to hide the Christ in Christmas. Or, if it is its a pretty stupid attempt. That’s the Greek letter χ, which is the first letter in “Christos.” You know, Jesus’ title. ↩
