A series on how Christmas is always there to let you down. Part 1.
- •Your family tells you: In so many words, of course.I.e. No grandma, the boy in my profile picture is just a friend (gay). Dad, I don't have a "plus one" to bring to Christmas Eve service. Sure thing unrelated-"uncle" David, I'll be sure to check back in with that ex-boyfriend AND HIS NEW WIFE because you're right, he sure was a nice guy.
- •Fuck mistletoe.Aka No-one-to-kiss-me-ceiling-weeds
- •You personally identify with the phrase 'suffering alone...'Especially when it comes to spending your December weekends at various extended family Christmas gatherings. Silent solo agony.
- •Christmas Eve versus Christmas Day is a silent mental battle of 'ugh, both nights with my parents, or just me and a(6) bottle(s) of wine...'See above and heed the warnings. Choose wine.
