I wonder just how many jaded people we have out there. I wonder how many are tagged in this way and how many would tag themselves as jaded.
I take care around people who I feel are jaded, especially this time of year. I send funny songs and cards and various holiday cheer to some people. For others, I ignore the holiday, because I think they’ll be annoyed if I do otherwise.
I guess you either like the Christmas music in the stores, or you don’t. If you don’t, or if I even think you don’t, I will act like Christmas isn’t happening when I’m around you.
This doesn’t bother me at all. I know some get depressed this time of year, for numerous reasons. But I just wonder if other “naturally-love-Christmas” people out there notice this too…and how they handle it. See, I sing Christmas songs year-round, so have to check myself. I feel deeply happy on Christmas and I always, even years (there have been many of them), when I have been completely alone, or with a group of fellow misfits.
My parents canceled Christmas when I was a kid. We simply did not celebrate it, because we were poor, I suppose, and/or because my parents just weren’t into their kids that much, at least not in this way. I was still happy on Christmas. It’s a feeling in my heart.
Do you always enjoy Christmas? Never enjoy it? What? Also, if you’re like me, how do you interact with your friends or family who aren’t?
