A guide for non-celebrators

Christmas is…

  • the best traffic day in Los Angeles.
  • a day when what you want to do is probably closed.
  • really boring on Facebook.
  • a time to see who was blessed with an eye for lighting design and who was not.
  • similar to hurricane coverage in Miami: starts off slowly until, by the end, you just want to kill yourself to be spared the horror of its wrath.
  • a terrible time in television.
  • cruel to children. (Specifically, the lengths adults go to to lie about Santa {NORAD, Google Earth, etc}, only to admit it was all a hoax. How is that kind?)
  • a day to celebrate the “fisher of men” with a tree adorned by various plastics and popcorn.
  • awkward. (“Merry Christmas!” “Oh…thanks!” “What are you doing for it?” “…nothing.”)
  • a lot of work and a lot of pressure.
  • unoriginal 
  • a great excuse not to get things done.
  • sweet.
  • well-intentioned.
  • annoying.  (I don’t begrudge anyone a bad Christmas, quite the opposite. I just get so tired of hearing about it.)


About J.

A former twentysomething with a head full of curls and heart full of questions wondering: when we get to nirvana, will there be food?
