Watched A Christmas Carol last night on the telly. I love the ghostly references and the complete 'film noir' experience of this film. Never gets old. Given how I feel about X-mas (barely tolerable), I even enjoy the fluff that is in opposition to Ebenezer's darkness. Such innocence and 'goodness' in the face of tiny Tim is hardly believable anyway, so moot, I allow myself enjoyment of this classic.
X-mas pretty makes me want to kill all the happy people who through their ignorance are damning the world to hell. I'm not going to offer an in-depth political or philosophical explanation of this statement at the moment, but if you think about it, I'm sure you'll be able come up with an explanation on your own.
I tolerate X-mas only because it makes my family happy. I DO enjoy spending time with them but I resent that this is the only time of year that that ever happens naturally and gracefully. I know this attitude darkens the atmosphere a little, or perhaps a lot, but that's what I'm about. At least I do it with a smile. And I'll do it again next year.
So here's what I have to say about Christmas on the eve of the big day:
I won't normally post images that are not my own but this is too good for me to pass up. I don't even know who did it but it states exactly how I feel without any words at all!
So if you enjoy Christmas, I wish you the merry best and if you don't I wish you tolerance and perseverance... if I can get through it you probably can too.
