I had it. I am up to here with idiots, passive aggresive manipulators and overall morons flooding every shopping space like desperate vampires looking for a fix. I am fed up with the TV News Sob stories of families YOU MUST HELP or we will make you feel like a hun (As in Atilla, not as Baby Hunny at the corner bar).
If you are an Out of Towner who traveled to Florida to escape the cold weather from the North, don't turn around and complain that "It does not feel like Cristmas because there is no snow." And by the way, being from out of town does not cancel any laws or rules regarding what constitutes good behavior so do not act like a 12 year old and then be surprised you get smacked.
Don't email me or write "Merry Xmas." The guy whose birthday we are celebrating was called Jesus Christ and not Jesus X. This is NOT a Spike Lee movie. And speaking of movies, don't lie to me and say your favority Christmas movie is It's a Wonderful Life or Miracle in 34th Street. You have not watched either since you were 8 years old, hell you probably don't even own the DVD or video!
As for Christams music... ENOUGH! If I hear another 7 hour medley of the elevator music of Rudolph the Red Nose Raindeer, Frosty the Snowman, White Christmas and other assorted watered down songs, I'll move to Tibet. IMHO there are only 2 valid Christmas songs : The Carol of the Bells and Adeste Fidelis. If I feel brave I'll go for Handell's Messiah but only once.
No, I am not planning on wearing green and red items of clothing to get "in the spirit." All of you dressed in greens and reds look like escapees from an alternative-lifestyle Robin Hood movie. And be my guest and decorate to your heart's content, just don't keep me awake at night with 10KW halogen spotlights aimed at my windows while the inflatable carrousel keeps playing It Is A Small World After All until 3 am. I might get just a tad cranky.
And no, I don't plan on reading, declamating, orating any writer's Christmas story/tale/remembrance. I'll stick with the original version published a couple of thousand years ago.
Soyy for the outburst but I needed to get it off my chest.
