Yes, its a Christmas post! As the holiday period really goes into overdrive, adverts take on a festive theme, people start giving each other bits of cardboard and the music industry tries to bastardize more classic songs by giving them to new artists who sing them, well, wrong (you know who you are).
Everyone knows the best part of Christmas is the gifts & food, but unfortunately the excitement diminishes year after year and I think I've figured out why this is. There seems to be a scheduling error in December resulting in the new year coming along right after Christmas Day- really, it's less than a week after! Whoever thought following the best day of the year with what is easily the most depressing, gun-in-mouth terrible day of any year was not thinking straight. How can any adult enjoy Christmas as much knowing what fast approaches? Every year, convincing themselves 'this year will be better', refusing to acknowledge that every year for the last 5 years has been worse than the one before.
Rather than just piss all over something as I usually do, I'd like to suggest a solution! I vote we change the date of Christmas to sometime in early January, and use December 25th for nothing but somber religious ceremonies. This way, December 25th can regain its religious significance and NewYearsEve will eventually stop being so terribly mind numbing and reflective as everyone will be looking forward to Christmas.
This could work, it just needs support. That's you, readers.
