Lots of people are currently losing their knickers over the holidays, christmas mainly and new years eve (duh) and I'm just here hoping to get enough cash for my vices, but not really interested at all this year. A bunch of stuff seem to be happening in my life right now, none of them really joyful so I guess that could be a reason, but pretty much any kind of celebration has lost more and more of its value the last few years.

Anyone else share a similar feel? Or maybe the opposite, I'd like to hear.

Holidays mean very little to me anymore. Just another time when the greedy ones attempt to exploit others. Just another time for people to fail to treat each other well.

I remember being a kid on Christmas day. The excitement, the happiness. Sure, part of it was just the hope that I would get some cool new toy that I wanted, but it was more than that. I didn't have to see or deal with all the shit behind it. Now things are different. Christmas is not exciting, happy, or joyful for me anymore. Lesser holidays are nearly completely meaningless to me. More like excuses to get fucked up and forget how much I hate my life for a little bit.

So far, the past week's had me learning that I'm med-DQed from the enlistment option I want (at least in this part of the country), I have less money than I've had since about the age of 12, and today I buried my cat who dropped dead at about 4-5 years old, which was rather unexpected and unwelcome news, to put it mildly. So far, I'm looking for the New Year to come quickly, and hopefully leave some of the suck behind.

Xmas is more of a holiday for material stuff than anything else. It has had all original meaning replaced by commerce. So, in a sense, the world itself jumps into the wrong wagon. As for me specifically, nah, don't really give a rat's arse. Sure, the food is nice (we get a lot of sweets here), it's nice to see my family and now I have more friends to spend it with (even though we don't have any concrete plans yet). But that can happen any time of the year, it just happens to happen this time. Not really much difference. I can eat sweets and talk with friends the rest of the year too....

Birthdays, holidays, IDGAF anymore in the recent years. Honestly, I couldn't give less of a shit.

If it didn't happen I wouldn't miss it.

I say that about almost everything though.

Yes and no. I like Christmas, I really do. I haven't felt in the spirit to celebrate in years, though. It may be that I've outgrown it, but likely it's that I've been depressed for years and I can't get into the whole thing. I act the same way around every other celebration, down to my birthday.

I do miss it, though, so I guess I'm not exactly in the same boat. If I sort my life out, I'll be making a ritual out of decorating my tree again.

I'm neither Christian nor pagan, so I don't do Christmas. If anything, the fact that no matter how hard you try to avoid it, it's shoved in your face constantly anyway, just pisses me off.

On the plus side, I'm going to be super rich compared to everybody else afterwards, what with not running around and buying garbage for people because the corporations told me to.

New Year's Eve can't come soon enough though. 2014 has been bullshit.
