Everyone Needs To Chill Out

I've come to the conclusion that when it comes to the holidays Americans if not the world, need to chill the fuck out.

We make everything to damn hard and we make ourselves crazy for a few days that end much too quickly. It usually leaves us depressed too.

Our expectations are high and the outcome is very seldom what we want.

We all need to stop worrying about stuff.

Here are some things to think about.

Thanksgiving is just another dinner.

No one needs thousands of dollars worth of presents.

2 days shouldn't make you crazy or broke.

Chill out. Make turkey, your potato of choice, stuffing and a veggie and enjoy your meal.

Buy nice gifts that you can afford.

Chill out.

Oh and if a store clerk says Happy Holidays and not Merry Christmas..


Christ can still be in Christmas without the world ramming him down everyone's throats.

It feels early to be talking about it, but some places say 'Happy Holidays' over here now around Christmastime.

Usually it's still Happy/Merry Christmas/Xmas although there's still a fair amount of Yuletide greetings, which hark back to the midwinter solstice before the churches got hold of the festival.

Come to think of it, today is Samhain, which is the start of the next season and for some the start of a new year!

It should be time to chill, and not be overwrought with politics.
