Christmas day is one of the days in the year that I would like to fly by just to get back to normality. As bah humbug as it sounds, to me it seems a lot of fuss about nothing.
I understand the real meaning of Christmas but I am not religious myself.
For me it has become too commercialised. So many people, including myself, spend far too much money on presents, food and drink. A lot of food goes to waste, the wrapping paper gets added to landfill and people get far too drunk.
So I try to think of it as a time when my family get together. We have a lovely meal, watch the same films we watched last year and play games.
This year was the second year that I have spent at my sister’s with me, my mum, my sister’s husband and his dad.
To say my sister’s husband and his dad (78 yrs old) were being crude feels like an understatement. I don’t understand why some people are like that. It is not acceptable anytime, anywhere!
Keep those kinds of comments/thoughts to yourself.
