To skip it completely.
Am I the only one?
I am utterly sick of Christmas in the commercial, buy, buy, buy, blow up ornaments on the lawn (I’m sorry, they look like crap), all-about-the presents sense.
Don’t get all pissy about “the reason for the season,” or “giving back to the community.” I’m not religious, and I give back to my community every time I put on a uniform. I love traditions, but it seems that I hardly have the time nor do I have the funds to keep them up.
Christmas is all about filling the expectations of others…and I hate the expectations of others. If I could, I’d skip it. And that is exactly what I plan on doing when I have no more kids in the house. The very first year they are all moved out, I’m going on vacation.
I think that will be around December, 2020. Who’s with me?
