Merry Fucking Christmas

It seems the blogging and Instagram annual bitchathon is in high gear in regards to the bemoaning and demeaning those folk who have the audacity to mention, decorate or purchase anything remotely festive.

This hate for people minding their own business baffles me, in a community that pretends to embrace the ‘you do you’ mantra, there sure are a lot of people looking down on those who happen to start Christmas early.

I’ll admit to loving Christmas, it is without doubt my most favourite time of year, I go all out and couldn’t care less what anyone thinks of how and when we decorate or purchase gifts/decorations. But, I’m fortunate, I choose to decorate early, buy decorations and gifts when I like and play cheesy festive tunes whenever I can, because I love Christmas.

Sadly, some of the folk being snarked on aren’t starting early because they love Christmas, they’re starting early because behind those gaudy decorations and fairy lights, is a beloved family member who has been told they wont be here by December 25th. Behind the false smiles and cheery songs is a girl whose foster place has fallen through and she’s being sent to a homeless centre in 4 weeks. Behind the hastily wrapped gifts and fake Santa there’s a dad who will be missing his child's first Christmas as he’s being deployed in a months time.

Maybe the people you’re mocking are starting Christmas early, because like me, they just love Christmas, or maybe there are more serious, heart breaking reasons. Whatever the reasons, not sure why anyone feels the need to get snarky and belittle the choices other people make, especially when those decisions have fuck all to do with you!

Merry fucking Christmas!

  2. Perfect post, I also love Christmas. 2 years ago we had Christmas on the 21st November because we knew my Mum wouldn't be here at Christmas and she loved it and was determined not to miss it. She even put in plans that everyone was to wear the most outrageous Christmas jumpers to her funeral. It was funny to see the grumpy 'no Christmas before the 20th December' members of my family rocking up to her funeral on the 5th December in Christmas jumpers, she certainly had the last laugh!

  3. Such an important post! It's a funny community we have in blogging, and like you say it isn't right to judge people especially when you don't know the whole story and especially for something as simple as decorating early. Who are we hurting by celebrating the Christmas season ahead of time? Literally no one! If it offends people then that's their problem!

    Personally, I'm decorating my house early because my parents are visiting this month and it'll be the first Christmas Day in 23 years I can't spend with them due to my work schedule - which, frankly, sucks!
