Bullshit Holidays

I really think I’m done even acknowledging holidays anymore. I’ve always hated Xmas and I definitely hate Easter.

the holiday spirit

A couple months before Crapmas some people get excited for all the holiday spirit and all the joy, is it just me or has this dwindled a little bit every year? Granted, I’m not an expert on this particular holiday but I’ve watched from the sidelines for a while. Has it always been so commercial […]
