Christmas time aka the downfall of western civilization

It is that time again. Bad music in the radio? Check. Shops filled with crazy people buying too many presents? Check. Crazy, power sucking christmas lights everywhere? Check. Bad christmas episodes of usually good shows on TV? Check. I could go on but you know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate christmas, actually I quite like it but please can we just celebrate it a few days? I don’t need a whole month or more to prepare for christmas. I can eat and drink a lot anytime I want. I don’t need to prepare for that and while we’re at that, I also need no preparation for getting presents, I don’t need a month to prepare for my birthday so why should I need a month before christmas?

But it’s too late to complain. Most of the harm is already done. You can’t undo hearing WHAM! for the first time, it scars you till january. In the good old days we used to have a interesting movie release in december to get you through it but it seems like TRON LEGACY has january start date. There is the Doctor Who Special, but wait thats’s christmas themed.

I guess I just have to live with it, that every year western civilization gets visited by the christmas spirits and takes it’s toll. We are all doomed.

Take care.
