Its time for my Christmas rant. First off I enjoy Xmas day I drink all day and eat the best meal of the year. However that being said I donít see the point of it and I f***ing despise the build up. You can feel it building from November onwards the inevitable fake cheer starts creep in cos itís the holiday season and you should be happy.
Why should I be happy? I cant get out of bed, its so cold its either freezing or pissing it down, or both! Ive got to go to work in the dreariest conditions and I hate it. I abhor busy shops at the best of time but at Christmas everyone goes mental and swarms into town like its going out of fashion.
If I could understand the point of it then maybe I would embrace it but I donít. Its not religious at all anymore Its Jesusí birthday but do you ever see happy birthday JC cards? no what you get instead it pictures of as fat man in a red suit. Why red? black is a far more slimming colour and with that figure he needs all the help he can get.
I can actually see Santa being phased out do to the paedo hysteria and old man giving out presents that image is no longer p.c. Even if you are religious and you want to celebrate the life of JC then Easter is occasion to do so. Christmas celebrates the birth of Christ woopee doo everyone ever has been born itís not impressive but only JC has came back form the dead. Damn straight he needs a big celebration for that so I can see the point of Easter for that, however we now celebrate that by having a giant bunny lay chocolate eggs??? I had a rabbit when I was young and her chocolate eggsÖ.. well maybe Iíll tell that story later.
Oh and the TV and Radio its full of xmas shite. I like one xmas song and its Fairytale of New York by the Pogues cos its real and filled with emotion not the saccharine shite every other xmas song is filled with that grates on me so badly.
I have a degree in financial services and Iím a fan of capitalism so I should like Xmas cos, well thatís all it is a giant celebration of capitalism if we renamed it capitalist day I would have no problem with it. Come everyone relieve yourselves of your hard earned cash to multinational corporations please make us richer by giving into your families demands and pretend you love this horrible time of year.
