Well since a few other people wrote Christmas posts I will to. In this post I will write not only about the good things about Christmas but also the bad and horrible.
Let’s start out with the good parts of Christmas. The good parts of Christmas are: getting, giving, seeing family and/or friends, and decorating the tree. Let’s start with getting. Now I know that Christmas spirit isn’t about getting it’s about giving. But I’m going to be honest here and tell you that I enjoy getting at least as much as giving (probably more). And I personally do not think it is something to be ashamed of. Plus if people didn’t enjoy getting as much (or more) as giving than there would be no point in doing either one either one.
Next is giving. Giving isn’t fun but still makes you happy. Ok so that probably doesn’t make since to most of you. Maybe I’ll explain in a different post sometime. When you give it gives you a nice feeling inside when the other person opens their present or presents. The happiness of watching someone open there gift or gifts is usually fuelled by excitement. In the bad section I will explain what happens when the effects of giving backfire.
After that is seeing family and/or friends. Seeing family and/or friends is fun, exiting, and happiness producing. One good thing about seeing family and/or friends is that it doubles the effects that come from giving and getting. Aside from this factor of enjoyment there is also a strong and unexplainable happy feeling that comes from getting together with people on Christmas day.
And finally we come to decorating the tree. Decorating the tree can also be associated with giving/getting. It is not a fun thing to do for some people but to a lot it is fun because of the opportunity to express creativity in a way that cannot be done in everyday life.
I would continue except for the fact that I’m super tired of writing. And plus ruining your Christmas with bad facts is none of my business.
What do you think are the best and worst things about Christmas? There is no anti-spam word detection or comment moderation on this blog. So feel free to say what you think!!!
