Christmas is fast approaching. I don’t really buy into the whole Christmas cheer and presents. We used to celebrate Christmas when we were younger, with the tree and food and family, but as we got older, Christmas holds much less meaning for me, not being Christian and all. Chinese New Year is more my thing.
Now that I’m older parts of Christmas feel very empty, like perpetuating a lie for children, annoying Christmas carols being played in shopping centres, all the hype and commercialism. I guess you could consider me somewhat of a Scrooge.
However, I still do love shiny sparkly things like Christmas decorations. It also helps that red is my favourite colour.
