It’s coming on Christmas

It’s coming on Christmas
And they’re cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

It don’t snow here
Stays pretty green
I’m gonna make a lot of money
And quit this crazy scene
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

 

Although I enjoy Christmas as a time to give things, I have really come to despise the commercialism and obligations that have come to be centered around the holiday.  Why do Christmas decorations need to be on sale in stores on Halloween?  Doesn’t Thanksgiving get its own time of year?  Do we need 30 days plus of Christmas time?  Do people understand Black Friday doesn’t mean anything other than “day for businesses to stop losing money”?

We haven’t decorated for Christmas in 3-4 years now and I don’t miss the tree, I don’t miss the lights.  I still have a bunch of ornaments from my childhood, but it’s actually kind of nice to not have the stress of putting them on display with several cats to worry about.

It used to snow around here every couple of years.  It’s now been almost 4 years.  “It doesn’t snow here/stays pretty green”

I’ve got two days of work this year, I’m taking off three hours tomorrow to see Star Wars, and I have half a day off on Christmas eve.  Then I get to play “Home Repair Man” for 9 days (since I’m insisting on Christmas being a ‘watch tv all day day).
