What Drives Me Crazy About Christmas

Hey there! The holidays are my favorite time of the year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t aspects that get on my nerves.

I know, the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. That doesnt mean they are always the most wonderful time all the time. Sp here are some of the things that drove me crazy about Christmas.

How early it starts

It seems stores start putting up their Christmas decor earlier and earlier every year. Now don’t get me wrong, this is my favorite time of the year, but it feels weird celebrating my birthday at the end of October and then jumping straight to Christmas, skipping Halloween and Thanksgiving. I’m a big believer of giving every holiday their chance to shine. Christmas seems to dominate the last half of the year that other holidays don’t really get their聽chance and time of year.

The extreme commercialization

There are always so many sales, asking Santa what you want for Christmas, buying the perfect gift for someone that it’s like people forget about what’s important. You don’t need to buy someone the latest iPhone or something extravagant. People are rushing to buy the coolest gifts on the best sale. I get that people want to buy gifts for their family, but that is not the main reason for this season.

Many people forget the “reason for the season”

Now, this kind of ties in with my last point, but it’s also a little different. I work in the travel industry, dealing with the public. A lot of times, people are very wrapped up in their plans and think those are the most important things. People forget to be grateful that they are able to travel to see family, have a family to be able to spend time with, and that they have what they have.

What bothers you about the holidays and Christmas in particular. Let me know in the comments down below!
