Hi. I know some of you don't like signs of "holiday season" any earlier than Thanksgiving, but I have a different approach. When it is Christmas, sometimes people are nicer. When it is Christmas, sometimes people show how they care, like it has to be saved for a particular time of year.
Suddenly, I remembered a day in 1998 or '99, in the summer, my beacon of hope at the time, 101.5 WPDH (The Home of Rock 'n' Roll) played randomly (and I felt good about it):
I am someone who feels sometimes lonely during Christmas, because Christmas is for children and families. But I also wish it could be Christmas every day. Not the buying matched soap sets for some co-worker for Secret Santa because she'll probably throw them out anyway, because you have to, but the earnest generosity of one human being to another. I feel like humans are terrible to each other, they set aside Christmas as a fake time, or an obligated time, or a particularly holy time, or a materialistic time, or a very corny time. I have eaten that corn today. I hate that Christmas ends and people stop being nicer. I hate that people are "nicer" because it's Christmas and delineate times of year to be especially nicer, then suddenly stop and go back to "normal" until they're obligated to cheer the fuck up for two weeks or so.
You know what it is about Christmas is people are drunk more than usual. However, go about your business being hardline bitches like me too and logical critics, that's why I love you!
