Hiya everyone! I’m doing Blogmas, I know, but I am just struggling to feel Christmassy!
When I was younger, the holiday season was the best and quite possibly the happiest time of the year, every year it was beyond exciting. The moment December arrived, everyone was in an amazing mood. You were trying to be a good person for Santa. You were filled with excitement and far too many cookies that your body shouldn’t have been able to have digested.
Now that I have grown older, my attitude about the holidays has changed.
All I see is stress upon stress. Both from myself and from every other single adult. Being a child at Christmas made you overlook that. You didn’t need to prepare dinner, presents and do all of that is such a short space of time as you don’t even get many days off for Christmas. Luckily for me, I get a lump of time off because I’m still a student but that doesn’t make it any easier.
I think it doesn’t help that there is such a huge contrast to how you celebrate christmas as a child and how you celebrate as an adult. Children have no worries (if you do, I’m so sorry) at this time of the year because the adults carry them all.
Maybe I’m being the Grinch this year. I don’t know hahaha. It just doesn’t feel very Christmassy. I always expect to be full of love and festive cheer but this year, it’s just like everyone around me is exactly that and I’m just not feeling it. I wish I could hold onto the feeling I had as a child because that was so bloody amazing.
Maybe I have to give it time. Maybe I just don’t enjoy Christmas as much as I used to.
