A New Year is no big deal, considering it’s just an arbitrary date on a calendar created by people. But then, all holidays are arbitrary dates on a calendar, and none of those dates hold any importance for me.
Why should I give a damn about going from three nines when I write a check to writing three zeroes when I write a check. No biggy.
Christmas has been commercialized to hell, Thanksgiving destroyed by repeated lessons in elementary school, Halloween turned into a bizarre costume party by fearful christians, the fourth of july an excuse to make noise, and so on. What happened to meaningful days that had a right to be meaningful, like Armistice Day?
So I’m not celebrating any more holidays.
My sister gave me a card to be hung on the refrigerator year round in honor of “Valeastergivingweenmas”. Doesn’t sound like a half bad idea to me, only full status to easter just doesn’t bode well with me.
So instead, I’ll celebrate Valeasticegivingweenmas when I feel like it. It’ll be meaningful to me, which is what counts. I don’t give a damn what is SUPPOSED to be meaningful to me. I don’t need people telling me what I should be thankful for, or when I should blow stuff up, and so on. I’ll do such things when it’s meaningful to me.
Yes, I’m ranting/fuming. All the same, holidays are stupid ideas. Same as religion, telling a person what is to be important. I’ll make my own decisions as to what is important to me. To ME!
Valeasticegivingweenmas cannot be associated with a date, because once I rule the world and get rid of all the other holidays, then an association with a date will be meaningless to so many other people. And an association with a date will just bread another merchandising monster. No good, no date. Celebrate Valeasticegivingweenmas when you have a reason to.
