Christmas is the Worst

Ari Watson, Staff

Why are people so happy during Christmas time? It smells like hot chocolate and, of course, the sickening smell of cinnamon. Lights on the store fronts are absolutely blinding. The Christmas tree at Marketplatz was put up the day after Thanksgiving, which is unbelievable. Why can’t people just wait until December? 

 People sing annoying songs about Christmas, Santa, and some guy named Rudolph. (I have no idea who he is.) There are three weeks at Christmas break, and people are still leaving early for holiday vacations. It appears that Christmas is only about the presents. Where’s the originality? Where’s the pizazz?

All I ever hear is “Merry Christmas!” and “Happy Holidays!” It’s infuriating. Christmas is the loneliest holiday ever if you have no one to spend it with, so I refuse to be happy. The holiday season is the worst.

All I ever do on Christmas day is eat bad food because I’m bored. I never have anyone to spend it with or give presents to. Christmas is for people who have their lives together. What about me? I don’t have my life together. My feelings about Christmas can only be put into words by the wise Grinch, “Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, double hate, loathe entirely.”
