Just dig through the layers, dammit!

You know, I am such a traditionalist when it comes to holidays like Christmas. I’m not a Christian myself, but I put a lot of value in being with my family and so on during Christmas. Certain days of the year we have our holidays and we put certain values in them. I guess the basic thought of Christmas tho has been so completely washed out so it doesn’t matter if you’re a Muslim, Hindu or Heathen anymore – you are all welcome to celebrate Christmas anyways (even though, how retarded it may appear).
I really hate all the stuff leading up to the holiday, tho, but I really like the holiday itself. I guess it gets a little too hectic for me and I have a hard time understanding all the rush that everyone seems to enjoy going through (or at least they do it yearly and voluntarily). On the surface it may appear commercialistic and superficial, and under THAT is all shallow and meaningless too (common!, I’m celebrating the birth of a person I don’t even believe in)!
But under THAT, under all those layers of shallowness, crappyness, vulgarism, and commercialism, yes, there ARE a warmth and a spirit to the holiday season.

You just have to dig for it. I myself just follow along with the stream and hope the spirit of Xmas will guide me … he probably won’t, he’s probably forsaken me after all my sins and errors, but one can dream .. otherwise I would do something really radical…maybe boycott the whole thing or end up like Scrooge himself (not the duck-one, though, the Dickinson-one) .. I’m sure I would miss it then, tho …After all, it is clear to me that we need some excuses, what ever their name is (Ramadan, Xmas, or a crazy Hanukkah), to get together with friends and families to be together and relax a little. It doesn’t matter what names they have, it is about the positive things they carry along with them. They’re basically all the same …

So chill out children, I won’t steal Christmas from you!
