So 5 days into the new year, and 11 days since Christmas, it occurred to me that not many people felt that Christmas didn’t seem very, well, Christmassy.
Some say it was because of the weather – for the past few years we’ve has snowy Decembers and even some white Christmases, so this year, since there wasn’t much snow around Christmas time, maybe we we just weren’t happy that we didn’t have a white Christmas at all.
Others say that there was a certain lack of “Joy” and “Happiness” and the usual “rush” . Shops still made millions, but apparently there just wasn’t that much talk of Christmas, and an unusual atmosphere for the time of year.
As for Christmas day, there just didn’t seem to be that usual feeling. Maybe, this is due to the fact that I am growing up, and realising new things and the whole thing about you know who…
I mean, in my household, we celebrated Christmas as usual, with lots of decorations, and we had our usual steak-pie dinner, and we had presents, but there was just that feeling as if someone had took half the colour away from a rainbow, but the rainbow was Christmas.
Another fact could be that people believe that that was the last ever Christmas. I’m talking about the people who believe that the world is going to end, just before Christmas, of this year. But I’m not going to ramble on about that, you can read what I think of that, here.
So, will next Christmas be back to normal, full of the Christmas cheer, the rush and joy? Or will it be the same as last year’s? Or worse?
