Looking at the suicides and the tragedies that have taken place during Christmas, I was left to ponder…. Is Christmas overrated? I for one had a great day yesterday but I have one major complaint. After having to work six hour shifts for most holidays during my career in radio I absolutely without question Despise Christmas music. I not only despise it…. It literally makes me nauseous. How many times can I hear Silent Night? One song, sung but 9 million singers. While in the store doing some shopping before the holiday, I wore my iPod so that I could not hear the music.
While I am not saying it’s a day that people should kill themselves, it’s been documented that it is one of the most likely days people are at their lowest when it comes to depression. Everybody does not want to celebrate and there are lots of people who don’t have families or friends and they are not considered. Christmas is shoved down our throats whether we want it or not and I think that’s bullsh….Ã‚ I think a movement should be created where people where shirts that say “Screwged Christmas” and demand stores stop playing the music and they throw big buckets of water on Christmas Carolers who invade their privacy. Am I Scrooge? No, I’m a champion for the underdog. Christmas is not for everyone, just like religion (another editorial) so why must we be forced to accept it?
