Bah Humbug to all!
I dont recognise the 'Spirit' of Christmas until I actually participate in doing something to help others(which I have planned for Jan next year and hope to continue into the Future). Otherwise it's just another day of the year. However my folks are Christian so I try and respect that and am enjoying just bein of use to them..tis the only way I get through all the bullshit, Consummerist Orgy that Society has created around it...Its during the build up to X-Mas that I find most irratating and upsetting. My sense of loss is re-inforced by a lack of Family cohesion and absence of true 'friends'.
Just wanted to post a Thread so people can vent primarily about two things(but feel free to Elaborate):
1) About the manipulation they Experience at this time of year and how it contributes to them feeling like they dont fit the Stereotypes Associated with it!
2) Also, how they think they can combat this 'punishment' by a largely ignorant and self- serving Society.
So in a nutshell, whats missing from your life?; what needs to be changed and what needs to be Accepted?
