and so the 'festive' season is already being forced down our throats by commercial giants. it's no secret that i hate christmas, and most people assume that that's because it's my birthday on the same day, but that's only a small part of it.
lately a few people have been labeling me as a 'grinch' and i'm fine with that, what i'm not fine with is people assuming that my motives are so shallow. last year i was pretty worked up with so many people not bothering with my birthday, but this year i've realised i don't care about that. i've realised that the older i get and the more i look at the world the more self centered it appears to me as proven by the behaviour of those around me. christmas has become about the commercialism and materialistic. it's seems to be about who had the most and most expensive stuff. not being grateful for what we each already have, for what we have in others. not objects.
it just makes me very sad that this seems to be the way the world is going. that the 'me generation' has taken over so far already and that the world in general seems to be losing it's humanity and focusing so far inwards.
