Monday Morning Madness #32: The Holiday Blues

No, I didn't forget to have this written and scheduled for this morning. Actually, the internet connection was extremely slow last night, so I decided to write this today. Plus, I was busy watching The Walking Dead and Witches of East End last night.

The slow internet is a reason why I didn't get a few review posts scheduled over the weekend, so I'm going to be busy today and the rest of the week getting these reviews finished.

I know what "Thanksgiving" is, but it is the one holiday I would rather avoid at all cost. If you are like me, you probably have a few relatives that you don't want to see, let alone like them. Normally, it is just my parents, my grandmother, my uncle and me for Thanksgiving, which I still dread as I'm not a fan of turkey, cranberry, stuffing or anything with pumpkin in it, I would rather watch Home For The Holidays and go to the stores for the pre-Black Friday sales.

Christmas is a different story, as it is my second favorite holiday. In the past, there use to be two family dinners and a few gift exchange, but after a few deaths, marriages and divorces, nobody gets together anymore. The only gift exchanging is between my parents and me, which I kind of go over-the-top with gifts (though I don't actually spend that much), on Christmas Eve morning. On Christmas Day, I normally have dinner with my parents, grandma and one uncle. I also get my grandmother a gift and something for my uncle.

I haven't watched any Christmas movies yet (except for Bad Santa, but I don't consider it a Christmas movie and a few cartoons) but I have been listening to Christmas music (which I talked about last week). I found an Alvin & the Chipmunks Christmas CD brand-new at a thrift store for a dollar. I also bought Jewel's new Christmas album at Walmart, which I stumbled upon by accident.
