The Christmas Resistance Movement. I like it! I’m not a complete misery but I hate the commercialisation of Christmas and I’m not a Christian anyway, so it really doesn’t mean that much to me. I’m happy to celebrate midwinter and I’m always up for nice food and drink, but I refuse to be made to feel guilty because I’m not into all the crap that goes with December 25th.
While I’m on the subject, the other thing that bugs me is the really early start to the ‘festivities’. I don’t want to see decorations in the shops until at least December. There’s a house near me that’s already got a tree in their window, for fuck’s sake. And as for the other houses nearby that are decorated all over with rope lights and flashing Santas, I keep feeling the urge to blow the bastard things to kingdom come.
OK, rant over. I feel much better now, nurse.
