Is it true that when you grow up, you feel a little less Christmassy?
I am a 22 year old professional living with my brother in a small condominium in the middle of the busy business district. For this particular year, Christmas seems a little bit less happier. Don’t get me wrong! We went home in the province and got to spend this holiday with our relatives. We had quite a night. A small feast, a few beers, and lots of games.
But yes – despite all the smiles and laughter, there’s a small voice inside of me saying things could’ve been better. Well yeah, if I think it through, we may have a small family problem that got in the way of celebrating this season. However, I know deep inside that this is not the only reason as to why this season feels a little less brighter.
I have been seeing memes on Social Media discussing this very same topic. Among the post I saw are the ones depicting that I am feeling this way because I got a bit older. Heck with that argument!
The spirit of this season, in my opinion, should be celebrated joyously throughout our lives whether it be that in a stage wherein we’re a toddler, a tween, or even an old crippled man.
The season of giving is ageless and so should the people celebrating it. We should still all get giddy when receiving gifts, we should all be ecstatic on the eve of this season and the feast that we’ll be having. We should put effort in giving out gifts for our loved ones. We should all together celebrate Christmas with smiles in our hearts.
Writing this, maybe it is just really because I am a bit frustrated in life as I am going through some personal dilemma and that my family’s going through a bit of a tough patch but nevertheless I promise to celebrate next year’s Christmas with a thankful heart and a happier soul!
