When they ask the questions, every year, I sense some apprehension; as if my answers will have an impact on what is to follow. If only that were so. My answers are NO, NO, and I DON’T DO THAT.
The first question concerns my state of readiness for christmas*? Depending on my mood I either inform the inquirer I don’t celebrate christmas or I say NO, and ask if christmas will not come unless I’m ready. In my fantasy I have this power.
The next questions involve my level of excitement about the impending holidays and whether or not I have all my christmas shopping done, because isn’t christmas really about shopping? (I hate shopping of any kind at any time of year. I try to stock up on my needs before Thanksgiving hoping to avoid the chaotic crowds of sheep at the market until at least the second week in January.)
I hate holidays, all of them, but I hate christmas most of all. Bah Humbug!
