Last month of the year

The last month of the year, particularly here in the US is always crazy – people hustling to buy gifts, etc. I have never really enjoyed Christmas. It comes @ the most depressing time of the year because the sun is constrained to a few hours, it is cold. windy, generally dreary. I find the celebrations forced and phony. Some of the songs are genuinely depressing and dispiriting. Some of the drama over “happy Holidays” and “Merry Christmas” is amusing. None one should be forced to participate in the holiday celebrations – personally, I would rather be on a island collecting sun rather than saying “Merry Christmas” on December 25. Traditions may change over the years and they are changing to the dismay of some. Forced merriment is never good – when goodwill and cheer is honestly shared and felt, possibly there truly will be peace on earth and kindness to all – long time coming!!
