What do YOU think?
December 1st!! It’s officially the day I like to refer to as the first day of the “appropriate” holiday obssesion time period. Anyone who put up Christmas lights before today: You got what you wanted! You win, okay? You were the first one, congrats! Now please get a life. Sheesh.
So. Do I celebrate Christmas? Yes. Why? Because it’s fun to be with my family and get presents and stuff my face with holiday food. Duh.
Did I even know Christmas was a religious holiday until I was like, in the 5th grade? No.
I forget exactly how the topic came up, but someone told me they go to church every Christmas and it suddenly clicked. When I finally realized, I was like “OHMIGOSH. Christmas. Christ mas. Christ. Mas. Oookay. I got it now. We want mas Christ. Got it.” (mas means more in spanish by the way).
I felt guilty for some time after that. Ehh. Am I allowed to celebrate Christmas if I’m not religious? Should Skeptics give in to the holiday spirit, even though we don’t celebrate for the same reason?
What do you think?
PS – I got over it. I just love presents too much to give up good ol’ Christmas. Plus, stuck in my head all day long today was:
♫ I saw mommy kissing Saaaaanta Claaauuuuusee, underneath the mistletoe last niiiiiiiiight.♫
