I HAVE A CONFESSION…

I don’t like Christmas…

There I said it. I wasn’t gonna just make this confession at the end and waste your time. The bottom line of this post is that Christmas isn’t my thing and holidays in general aren’t really my thing. Yes, I am a muslim and therefore I don’t celebrate Christmas and perhaps that has had an effect on my unfestive personality. On the other hand, I don’t really look forward to any other special occasion apart from my birthday but that’s literally because of getting closer to being able to vote and to be considered an adult. 

The main reason behind me not enjoying festivities is that I don’t see why you can’t just have a big lunch with your family, decorate your houses and give thoughtful gifts on any other day? I understand the religious origins if Christmas but how many people actually celebrate Christmas for celebrating the birth of Jesus? Most holidays these days have literally become an excuse to do things that are already perfectly possible on any other day. Halloween for example, what’s wrong with dressing up in a costume tomorrow, Thanksgiving;why don’t you just express how thankful you are for whatever right this second? What’s stopping you? Valentine’s day;tell someone you love them and give them a hug now instead of waiting for February 14th (at least I think valentine’s day is then)

The truth is that everyday is special as long as you make it one with the correct mindset. 

I don’t have to justify my dislike for Christmas. All I see it these days is as an opportunity to eat chocolate and to not be in school for a prolonged period of time. Perhaps it’s because of my upbringing in which Christmas wasn’t really a thing or maybe it’s because missing out on it for years has made me a little upset and as a result I don’t like it. 

I don’t know really but what I do know is that I don’t like Christmas nor any holidays for that matter. Can’t we just make every single day special and make the most of every day on this planet?

  2. Ayyy I’m a Muslim too so I have absolutely no idea about the Christmas festivities. tbh, the first thing I associate Christmas with is Christmas holidays πŸ˜‚ Plus, India doesn’t go super crazy over Christmas so it’s easy to stay in the dark- but I still enjoy whatever we get. I agree though, everyday should be made a special day!

  3. This is why you’re my favourite person ever because you’re not afraid to voice your opinions, and you also think that every day should be special and I AGREE. Saying that, I love Christmas and my friends’ birthdays.

  4. I completely agree that EVERY single day should be special and celebrated. Also, Christmas and other festivals have become so commercialised in the past few years that most people have lost the true meaning behind all the glitz. However, I also believe that we have days like these because not every day can be spent with the entire family and the holidays provide a way for this to be possible if they live in a different county etc. There’s a few more reasons but ultimately I think that yes, every day should be special but some days are just more special than others because they hold a greater importance and sentimental value to certain individuals although that’s just my opinion πŸ™‚
