A Festive Thought.

Christmas. Well, almost Christmas. We have 4 days to go.
Every newspaper article/joke/news report right now seems to include something about insane, fanatic Christmas shoppers. I don’t understand. All you need to do is make a list of things to buy for your closest friends/family, and purchase various boxes of shortbread or chocolate for anyone else that you see around Christmas time. Or even make things yourself. Remember, it’s the thought that counts!

I have to say, I do love Christmas. We bought our tree just the other day, and my friend and I had to carry it home from the supermarket. We sure were a sight walking down the main street! I couldn’t wait to decorate it.
An hour later and it was covered in tinsel with Christmas ornaments hanging in uneven clumps. I felt very proud of myself when someone commented on how great the fairy lights looked. I had wrapped them around the tree all by myself.

At 14, I seem to be one of the only teenagers I know that still loves Christmas. Whether people are just saying that Christmas is boring to be cool, or if they actually are over it, I don’t know.
I wonder if I will hate Christmas by this time next year. I sincerely hope not.

As it creeps closer and closer towards the 25th of December I can feel my excitement mounting. That is the best part of Christmas. Not the presents, the food, or even the Christmas tree. The waiting, the expectation. Not even waiting for the presents, just waiting for Christmas day. That shock that runs through you when you wake up on Christmas morning and realise that today is, in fact, Christmas morning. That plain, pure joy. It makes me feel as if I am 6 years old again. It feels so much more carefree and fun than being 14.

Merry  Christmas everybody.

Who doesn’t love Christmas? That’s messed up, unless you’re all pretentious and think Chrismas is commercialised and evil, in which case you’re a wanker
