Christmas: Its just not what it used to be

Its crazy that their are only 10 days left until Christmas and the weird thing is I’m really not excited, like at all.

I thought that as it got to the start of December I would be more excited and have that feeling of excitement and anticipation but nope…

I think it might be because I’ve grown up a lot since last Christmas and now I pretty much just see it as businesses being like ‘Oh lets use this traditional Christian celebration and overly commercialise it to make as much money as we can!’

Even over the past couple years I have felt like once all my presents are opened its just hanging out with my family which I don’t dislike but I do it all the time so it doesn’t feel particularly special.

When I was younger I loved celebrating Christmas: decorating the house and tree, eating mince pies, opening presents, Christmas shopping with my Mother, Christmas Dinner, Christmas movies (Home Alone every year) and of course the snow!

I’m hoping that as the Christmas day gets closer I’ll be more into it but who knows…

I’d love to know how you’re feeling about Christmas this year, let me know in the comments!
