So after speaking to a guy via email on here. I wanted to see what other people thought about Christmas. Is it a happy time for you or not. If not why.? If you want to share that is.
My point of view fluctuates depending on the rest of my life. The cynical side of me views it as deriving from a way of controlling the non religious people. When you remove Christ out of Christmas. Ie like the ten commandments listing rules to the believers, then Christmas has santa watching kids to see if they are good or bad with consequences of behaviour. All to instill a sense of morality on the next generation
On the other hand, I also see it as a magical special time of year. One which should bring families and friends closer.
Guess what killed it a bit for me is I was disowned over 25years ago by my folks. It was around Xmas and it kinda never leaves you even though I wish them no harm. I would see I even respect the fact they held strong to their beliefs. They are strong Catholics.
Anyway what's anyone's situation. If u wanna share. I like hearing if people love Christmas or not. Just anything that makes u tick.
