Dear Santa, if you bring presents, bring batteries too

What greeting do you prefer: “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”? 

Every time December comes around, a debate starts up over whether people should be wishing each other "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays". Asked to choose between these two, 37 percent of Canadians polled chose “Merry Christmas”. That doesn’t mean they are wildly enthusiastic about "Christmas", the huge majority feel this time of year is too commercial. 42 percent of Canadians chose “Happy Holidays,” and “It doesn’t matter” is reserved for the rest.

After 2017 years of birthday parties, I really don’t think Jesus cares if we say “Happy Holidays,” or “Merry Christmas”. He is probably over it by now. Especially since it is not really his birthday but it doesn't really matter. Smell the Christmas cheer — go to the shopping mall or turn on the tv or radio. Buy Christmas presents that no one really needs. It is all about good-will, giving and whatever.

I have noticed that every year Christmas comes earlier and earlier. It is so annoying, Christmas is just one day, yet it seems to take a full month.
I don't like Christmas. 

This whole "Holiday Season" is just a commercial trap. Everything from Santa Clause and Frosty to boring Christmas songs played everywhere. The whole "the time of giving" is pure bullshit. Give to your relatives and friends more useless shit that they don't need. "Secret Santa" is the fastest way to to do it.

I don't know when this Christmas shopping disease actually started. Presents, gifts, good wishes, remembrance... the celebration of family... nice delicious dinner and long talks about past. Jingle bell, jingle bell...

Do whatever you want for the Christmas, decorate your house. Decorate it with enough lights to be seen from the moon. Put giant tree and Santa in your backyard. I don’t care. But I do ask Why is it that you buy enough food to feed the fifty when you’re only having two guests for Christmas? You'll wake up the next day feeling overstuffed, bloated, and nauseated. But nothing to worry about, the online advises of holiday detox recipes are everywhere.

Why should I or anyone else feel to celebrate an occasion I don’t have any interest in? I’m not a religious person, Christmas means nothing to me, and I’d rather save money for something I’m interested in. I am going with my girlfriend to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I had to use my vacation days for 2017 so be it. Punta Cana, 5 stars, all inclusive, luxury, adults-only resort. There I go.
