A White Christmas




That's the view from an upstairs window, it looks like it's going to be a white Christmas here, though that's hardly shocking considering where I live.

I don't really know what to say since everyone else's Christmas posts pretty much covered everything already. Be grateful for your family and friends, enjoy your holiday... that kind of stuff. So I guess I'm just going to go on a wild spiel that's not headed in any direction whatsoever.

For the past few years, whenever people asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I would always shrug and mumble "I don't know". Because, really. I didn't know what I could possibly want that I didn't have already. Sometimes I'd say "peace on earth and equal rights for unicorns," (they ARE real dammit!) just to make things more interesting. Of course that always made me seem crazier than I actually am. Come on, world peace?

Sure, that can happen, if one day humans beings miraculously stopped being greedy and power-hungry... and that's where the magic of Christmas comes in. *spirit fingers* Christmas is the only time of year when differences are forgotten and human compassion is recognized. For example, the Christmas Truce of 1914 - oh, wait, that was completely strategic for both sides so they could better their defences and spy on the other side without getting killed. Err...how did this post get so depressing all of a sudden?

But in all seriousness, due to my usual happiness fail, I'll just shut up now and wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. Merry Christmas, happy Hannukah, and happy whatever-else-is-celebrated-at-this-time-of-year. This is going to sound so corny, but whatever you do, be safe!

Now I'm off to panic because my turkey is still a huge solid lump of ice that doesn't seem to want to defrost at all.

    I never know what to tell people I want, so some variation of "world peace" is usually what I say. Or I ask for an end to poverty ~ Is it ever going to be possible? Maybe only in our dreams... but we have to keep dreaming :D

    Merry Christmas! I hope your turkey gets cooked :P

    I love the view :O It's really nice! I've never eaten turkey before, but I'm sure it's delicious. When it does defrost and bake, do give me some XD

    Anyways, Merry Christmas to you too! :D

    Unicorns are a sham! Created by the government to curb your thoughts! The horn represents oppression! And the wings are for the communists!
    etc, etc. :P

    Luckily, I shop WITH you to get you your presents. Hate to be the one stuck trying to buy world peace..

    [also: my word verification was "comys" conspiracy? irony?]
