SOME THOUGHTS ON CHRISTMAS

So, are we tired of Christmas music yet?  I am.  I used to have some Christmas favorites, but they are no longer favorites because they were repeatedly played everywhere, and are still repeatedly played everywhere.  You cannot go anywhere without hearing the same songs over and over and over.  When you turn on the radio you hear the same songs over and over and over.

I enjoyed Jingle Bells as a kid, but that was because I believed it would help Santa Claus to come.  I have never had a ride on a one-horse open sleigh.  I don’t know how much fun it would be.  I imagine it would be cold.  Because of the cold, I would have to pee. Where do you pee on a one-horse open sleigh?

There was only one good thing about peeing my pants in the winter: it came out warm.  But the warmth would not last long.  Soon it was cold causing my pants to freeze.

Then there’s the song, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.

“He knows when you are sleeping.  He knows when you’re awake . . . “

What kind of degenerate watches children while they’re asleep, and while they’re awake?  Does he watch them get undressed, too?

I am not against the Joy, Kindness, and Goodwill of Christmas.  These should be practiced all year round.  I am against being told that I must be joyful amidst the rush-rush madness and commercialism of Christmas, with speakers everywhere blasting Christmas music at me.

In spite of my thoughts, I will have a Merry Christmas.  Why?  Too many people are wishing me, “Merry Christmas” for me not to have one.
