See, Christmas is THE time of magic, but unfortunately, the amount of that magic is equal to the amount of the bullshit.
The salary is gone somewhere around 5th of December. Heartbreaks hurt twice as much. We get even more lonely, looking for the true connection that’s buried under tons of flashy Christmas decorations.
People get obsessed with getting “the perfect present” and invade shopping malls like its 1944 on the coast of Normandy. Homemakers are getting numb limbs from spending countless hours on decorating, cleaning and cooking, to end up with mental and physical exhaustion somewhere around 24th of December. Plus, we are forced to attend countless “Christmas events” with people we don’t like doing stuff we hate.
And did I mention that we start to mysteriously gain weight from the very beginning of the month even if theoretically that shouldn’t happen until the actual Christmas?
If the entire year was a computer game, December would be the last level where you have a chance to unlock your “pro” skills.

The “Real” Christmas Experience
And we agree on this whole Christmas mania as deep down inside, we all search for that mystical “Christmas Experience”. Most of the times, however, we search in all the wrong places – in “the- picture-perfect-Coca-Cola-commercial- Christmas-Eve”, in some fancy, expensive gifts, in mountains of food and buzz or in mass-produced “copy-paste” Christmas wishes, send via Facebook Messenger.
But my personal belief is that at the end of the day, all we are really searching for is HOW TO CONNECT. Connect with our childhood memories, connect with the divine, connect with other humans. And last but now least – connect with ourselves.
If you want to have an authentic “Christmas Experience” you need to quit all this bullshit and stop waiting for the miracles to happen.
Instead, f***ing create them yourself.
