Scrooge in the House

Mistress Scrooge that is. Well you can call me Miss. Scrooge or even Ms. Scrooge. Whatever you want. Either way I’m cranky, annoying and completely lacking of this thing called “holiday spirit.” I used to simply just not care about this holiday but now I’ve grown to despise it. I’ll tell you what specifically I cannot stand.

Plastic yard decorations, holiday music, fruitcake, talk of the holiday at all times, holiday drivers, holiday shoppers, the colors green and red together, santaphile, people expecting you to be in a good mood because it’s this holiday, holiday commercials, and lastly being wished a merry (fucking) xmas because I don’t want to be a part of it!

I do like a few things, which are probably what keep me from swearing in the streets and those are: eggnog, a couple days off from work, and an excuse to eat a crapload of food.  I think that’s all I can think of.

I actually enjoy some of the decorations but only the small white lights, I particularly like the single candles in the window.  All those blow up lawn ornaments make me wish I had a needle or something to let the air out.  I’m just sayin…

So yeah, you’ll just have to deal with Scroogie for a while…she’ll be gone around New Years.

Bah Humbug to all and to all a good night :robin:

    Getting in the mood for the big Anti-Christmas show I see! :mrfab:

    On last night’s show we talked about it a little. I may do it drunk. Wear a hard hat.

    Some of those are some of my favorite things about the Holiday Season!

    In fact, what I’m hoping to do one of these years, is pepper our front lawn with Holiday symbols from all religions & cultures celebrating something this month. I’d love to have a nativity scene, with a Star of David above it & snowmen & santa cavorting around in the snow beside it, while a yule log crackles nearby to keep them all warm :D

    Hope you weather it OK. I see it flying by way too fast, again – even with our extended Holiday season, due to the early Thanksgiving.

    Maureen - I’m so glad, at this for the next month, I don’t live next door to you :what:

    We don’t decorate the outside of our house, because I’d fall off of the roof trying, and my husband is Mr. Scrooge. :lmao:

    You can get holiday cheer from thinking about idiots like me rolling off of the roof while trying to decorate. :lmao:

    blueyes - Well I know there is an anti-christmas site I used to visit, the girl who runs it used to comment here.

    Megan - At 50 comments…sorry :(

    Angel - I will, that helps. You are such a good friend :lmao:

    I love making X-mas decorations & ornaments… but do NOT put them up at my house… the only thing my house gets is Lights (white, rice lights… itty-bitty twinkly ones)… Candles… and sometimes some greenery….

    once every few years I’ll do a tree… and even then I hate decorating it….

    you are not alone, my friend….
