Gearing Up For The “Holy” Days

October 30, 2009

Well, today marks the first day I saw blatant advertisement of Christmas goods in a store. Although by no means is this nearly as offending as the onslaught which begins sometimes in late July in the midwest. What I noticed last year was that here, there are many different religions and cultures and races and ethnicities all sort of smashed into one place. Personally, I tend to like that better than the “uniformity of ideas” that describes the midwest pretty much to a ‘t’. It’s more inspiring, and I feel less like an outcast because there’s more than just “one thing” on the table.

This year, again I’ll be going home for Christmas, but at least now I’m a voluntary visitor of my family’s religion, as opposed to being involuntarily exposed to  it and ostracized for thinking differently. Next year, I really want to work something out so that I can see how other people celebrate the holidays – I’ve seen “Christmas” for years, and it never seems to change. Lots of food and money spent on people who typically aren’t in need.
