That time of year again eh?

Posted: November 3, 2010 by CyborgNinja in Life

I could have sworn that last week it was Hallowe’en / Halloween, yet apparently its Christmas time. That month and a half flew! But seriously, Im a huge lover of Christmas ( not in a religious way, but I wont delve into that today). Although Im typically a cynical and pessimistic bastard, (unless Im playing video games or after eating sugar), I turn into a very nice person during Christmas, due to the whole coming together of friends and family and all that. But, one thing irks me beyond belief. Im 17 years old. For the last 5 years Christmas has increasingly been more annoying.
Two reasons for this being;  Presents and Exams.
Presents:  As I am 17 and unemployed, I have no income. Therefore I cannot buy the people in my life he presents they deserve. This is made worse by the fact that my brothers and parents buy everyone extremely expensive gifts and I see genuine reactions of joy. This means that my Dads rehearsed enthusiasm for the socks I’ve bought him is …. less real. I also am less than ecstatic about my presents each year because ( spoiler ) I now know the truth about Santa Clause, which seems to take some of the magic out of Christmas for me.

Exams: The bane of pretty much everyone aged 13 – 22; Christmas exams. What more can I say about them, other than they force you to realise the school year is half over already and you haven’t started studying.

On a lighter note, I like to think my Christmassy ( Portmanteau FTW ) self was touched by this video and I hope you enjoy.
