'Tis the Season to Be Grinchy!!!

Okay, so every year around this time I get Christmas overload! It's like I will turn on the television to see a little CNN or reality t.v. (I know, I know... no judging!) and every commercial break is filled with Jingle Bells, snowmen and "miracles". Anyhoo, I start to feel just like the Grinch when people say in passing Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays. I get to the point to where I just wish I could hibernate until December 26th. Which is one of my FAVORITE days of the entire year. Partly due the fact that it is the end of Christmas but really because it is the best day to go shopping!

I am really annoyed this year because as I type, there is some silly holiday boat parade going on behind my house. I mean these people go all out and decorate their yachts and blast Christmas carols this entire weekend. Sure, I wish I owned one of these yachts but I promise you that the real reason why it is annoying is the fact that the music keeps waking up my sleeping daughter who, by the way, will never have go through me lying to her about some old man who is going to come down the chimney bearing gifts. Really, I will never understand the reason behind all the hoopla. I love ISLAM!! No lies, no forced gift-giving and pressure... just the truth.

So, what do you like or dislike about the holiday season? Do you feel like a Grinch around this time of year???
