So, I worked 1000-2200 today. Many people wished me "Merry Christmas" or somesuch thing. I said the same thing back. Why should I care? It doesn't mean anything to me. If they said "Happy Wednesday" to me, I`d do the same. Maybe it matters to them, maybe they`re just making noises out of some sense of social behaviour. Either way, I may as well fit in.

It used to bug me, but now I don`t care. It doesn`t intrude on my life enough for me to care about it, nor does it pose a potential future hazard to me.

I don't celebrate it either, but I don`t hate it. People sometimes get me cards. I treat it for what it means to them, which is usually nothing. They buy a pack of cards and send one to everyone at work or all their neighbours or whatever. No meaning at all. So I smile and all the usual social blather we do in response to meaningless stuff, because that`s how society works.

My family sends me cards. I send them cards. I don`t care, but they do. So I send them cards. Not because I care about Christmas but because I care about them. I`d do the same if they cared about any random day of the year - it`s all the same to me.

The only thing I do at Christmas is volunteer to work 12 hour shifts so someone who cares can have the time off. Not because I care about Christmas but because I care about my coworkers.

Straight up I hate the holiday season. I'm atheist, I don`t celebrate any of the holidays, and yet the people around me always want to force me to. My family knows I`m non-religious and that I choose to not celebrate any religious holidays, and yet they insist on buying me gifts, christmas cookies, etc. I live on my own and whatnot so it`s probably because they`re "excited to see me"(I live 35 min away...), but it still bugs me.

Someone told me "Happy Holidays" the other day. I was a little amused, but not in any way offended. I think it's a hilariously silly thing to get offended over.

If this is the sort of thing that bothers you, you need more things to worry about in your life.
