May I be honest again? I despise what Christmas has become. I dread it because my financial situation does not allow me to purchase gifts like others expect. Our gift exchange is modest, to say the least. I would rather do away with it and somehow find the real meaning of Christmas again.
I am normally in a funk during this time of year. Seasonal depression hits, my checking account and bills are extremely unbalanced, and everything seems to go wrong. Does anyone else feel like this?
I probably shouldn’t break my blogging silence with this, but I believe that at least one reader out there feels the same way. Your Christmas cheer is shot because you don’t have the money to keep up with the expectations. I also don’t have the credit (and I think it’s a shame that people put Christmas gifts on credit and spend until next Christmas paying it off).
Just know that you won’t be getting an iPhone from me for Christmas. I might have an old box or case somewhere. Take that and give me Jesus!
