Happy Holidays is Bad????

I was not aware of how many “bah Humbugish” people there are in this world.  I am officially in the spirit and if I answer the phones happy holidays it’s because I want to, not because some person in corporate decided that is what I should say.  In my optical top ten I mentioned a prissy little man bitch, well his disposition has not changed and I only get hap out before he rudely interrupts me. These grumpy, miserable people will not kill my mood!

I have my Christmas music playing all day and that really does help block out the negativity.  I did come home from work today and pull out my Ally McBeal dvds, I’m on season 2 disc 3.  Christmas episodes so far have been disc 3 and this show had the best episodes around Christmas.  Listening to Christmas music all day improves my mood and makes me want to watch Ally.  I relate to her and she makes me laugh, who wants to be normal anyway?

Maybe it is because I don’t have a lurking cockroach, well I’m not stupid he is still lurking but he isn’t being so obvious about it.  Last Christmas I was still holding my breath because I wasn’t sure what he might do.  This year I am still aware but in a get a life and leave me alone kinda way.

Maybe it’s because the kids and I forged new traditions, or because I am making a conscious effort to slow down. Maybe it’s because I do believe in unicorns?  Oh yeah Ally season 2 disc 3, great episode, but really Christmas is magic so why not a unicorn?  Just because I have never laid eyes on one does not mean that they do not exist.  Off topic, yes I know.

Maybe I just want to have myself a merry little Christmas and I don’t get why that is frowned upon?  Should I be miserable and spend too much money?  Should I buy meaningless presents?  That is not me and since I have never made the effort to “conform” to society, I guess everybody else will just have to get over it.

If I want to say happy holidays, I will.

If I want to listen to Christmas music all day I will.

If I want to be excited because I found the perfect present I will.

If the full moon is totally messing with my libido I will deal with it.

If I choose to believe in Christmas miracles, I will.

If I want to slow down and savor every moment I will.

If I want to make too many cookies that the kids will eat before Christmas ever comes I will.

Do I even have a point?  Oh yes I do, I don’t have anybody to squash my Christmas spirit.  I am going to take full advantage of it and enjoy every single second of it!

    Glad to hear it! And I, on the other hand will get into the holiday spirit when I damn well feel like it. Not before Halloween, not before Thanksgiving, not the day after Thanksgiving . . . if I don’t get into the spirit before December 24th, dammit, I won’t. Because I don’t have anyone telling me I have to!

    What unencumbered women we have become, eh?

    • We sure have 🙂 I personally love that I don’t have anyone telling me what to do or raining on my parade. I have had many years when I was not in the spirit but I wasn’t rude to someone if they said happy holidays. It actually helps to disguise my irritation when I am at work, by the time I finish my intro, my voice looses the I want to rip the phone out of the wall edge.
