Felíz Navidad!

Ah, Christmas, the time of the year where streets are paved with colored lights, malls are crowded with people with their last-minute present buying, TV shows nothing more than a bunch of kids saving a fat old man dressed in red that in turn will bring present to every well-behaved kid in the world *sigh* what better way of remembering the day Jesus was born?

Must warn you something, I´m not a really Christmasy person, in fact, in my opinion there´s no worse time of the year, usually around this time of the year  my dad becomes depressed -if you ever wonder where I learned to be depressive there´s  your answer, my brother and sister are quite depressive too- and when it happens he starts becoming passive-aggressive with everyone, also starts drinking and that doesn´t improve his mood, this jolly routine of his has been going on for 8 years now since his father died and doesn´t seem to get over it at all as the years pass, my mom usually spends the days complaining of how tight is money and won´t be happy until she starts to work again. Also we have no decorations, no christmas tree, no christmas carols nor care about all that stuff.

Tonight we´ll have a nice family dinner though and go to sleep early, we´re not really religious people but we try to have a good time.

So anyways, if you don´t celebrate Christmas, have a wonderful night -in Mexico Christmas is celebrated on Christmas eve- it doesn´t matter your religion, tonight is as good a night as any to have a wonderful time with the people you love the most, and if you do celebrate it don´t have a spectacular holiday!!

Merry Christmas!!

Wow. A heavy post, and I fear I am not in a frame of mind to respond intelligently.

So I will simply say that I hope you and your family merry or passable or quickly finished holiday.

Awww. Well, Merry Christmas all the same! :-) All in the name of the holiday cheer. :-P

yes, the circumstances are not ideal to get into a festive mood. But your family spent the evening together and for me, this is the purpose of Christmas.

Some years ago, I had the luck to spend Christmas with Toño's family. I was suprised how joyful the celebration was. People of all age danced until dawn. We don't do that over here.

Hugs for you! The season is over now, and life will begin to get back to normal. The depression caused by the season should start to fade, and you will bounce back! You always do! At least you did have a nice supper together... gifts and decorations are nice, but truly not necessary. When you have your own family new happier traditions can take the place of your current traditions. Sending happy thoughts to you!
