Perhaps it’s a cruel joke that my favorite season is Fall, and it’s just around the corner. The weather is cooling, the leaves are changing, and they actually started putting Halloween things out in mid-August! Which, coincidently is also my favourite holiday.
The happiest time I have is approaching! I always hated when they started putting out Christmas decorations in July and then usually skipped over Halloween for all but a scrap decoration here or there. I live a very small, very religious town; and I’m surprised and utterly excited that they have my pretties out and about so much this year!
See, and many people will gasp in horror, but, I hate Christmas. Have since I was younger. Probably started at about 10 when the hate for the holiday started. For me, Christmas is a holiday where there’s not much laughter, but a lot of yelling and screaming and rushing to traditions that honestly cause more suffering than they’re worth given all the things we have to deal with. The only good thing about Christmas is seeing my niece and nephew smile and have fun.
Halloween was -and is- the only day where I wasn’t bullied or scoffed or complained at. Halloween was where I could be myself and gain compliments I hadn’t known I needed every once in a while.
This is not to say people are not entitled to their own opinion, but I’m explaining why these are my opinions. It’s a topic I thought I would share today that came to mind in this early morning.
I’m going to try to write a more lengthy blog about my leg updates soon! Until then!
