. . . is the worst living nightmare for a single person . . . .
You would think it would be Valentine's Day . . . but that is just one day . . . it starts at 12:01 AM on February 14th of each year and it will be over in 24 hours.
Christmas . . . depending on where you are in your life . . . . can be weeks long . . . there are parties . . . and these can be endless . . . . school parties, office parties, church parties, family parties, friend's parties . . . . a plethora of gifts to buy on one income . . . . unrealistic expectations to fulfill . . . . it is all about the thought . . . . please . . . . be real . . . just when you think you have everyone covered . . . people you haven't thought about in years come climbing out of nowhere . . . . really? . . . . it is all about the thought? . . . . fighting couples buying loving gifts . . . well, OK, that part IS like Valentine's Day . . . . . really? . . . . if you love me . . . you really need one day set aside each year to show me how much you love me instead of a lifetime . . . . . pfffftt . . . . unexpected company . . . . some welcomed . . . . some not so welcomed . . . . "everyone telling you to be of good cheer" . . . . easy for all to say . . . . I like being single . . . . the older I get the more I love it . . . . but the added stress and pressure of the Christmas season is more than a sane person can bear . . . much less a slightly wacky gal! 'Sides . . . . there is only one reason for the season . . . . and glitter, gold, gifts, gab is not it . . . . celebrate the season for the right reason . . . . Jesus Christ came and was born to die for our sins so we can have eternal life . . . . need there be anything else added to this joyous occasion?
