Hypochristmasy

Christmas time!!! Ah it’s the best time of the year; the time for giving, forgiving, being considerate and loving to one another, and of course being happy for no absolute reason.

“Everything is more beautiful on Christmas, life is worth living, the colors are brighter!”

“On Christmas I can forgive the ones who have hurt me, I can feel compassion, kindness, and sympathy towards my fellow human beings…”

OK!!! Wait just a freaking minute here!!!

Does nobody else but me see how messed up our species is? Not to be negative or anything, or maybe just to be exactly that, I agree that during Christmas all of the above is true and it warms my soul, if such thing existed, that it is; however, I cannot also help but notice the hypocrisy, the mechanical habits, and the human need for being controlled in this holiday.

We have gone beyond absurdity. We actually have a specific date for feeling some of the most basic, innate emotions that reside in us. This is ridiculous, made only more preposterous by the fact that this does not come naturally to us, it is an illusion. This is a forced habit. Somewhere, a very long time ago, some organization decided to take hold of this pagan ritualistic day and transform it to a “day for love and joy” of course preferably expressed towards people of the same faith, and it became the exact opposite of optional...

If on Christmas you feel that life is worth living, you let go of the grudges that you once held, and you show love towards others why can’t you do it hmmm let’s see….EVERY OTHER FUCKING DAY OF YOUR LIFE??!! Are you afraid that it would lose its excitement or its spark? Do you fear it will become another habit? Now you decide to rage against the status quo?

You would like me to finish this off with a sentence that may make some people think about all this and somehow try to be better, but that wouldn’t be me. Instead I will end this with a quote by the late George Carlin:

“Dusting is a good example of the futility of trying to put things right. As soon as you dust, the fact of your next dusting has already been established.”
