Ebenezer Scrooge

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!
