    The Magic, The Wonder Is Gone

    The holidays dont seem very fun or exciting anymore.  When I was a kid they were great because that's when I believed in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny.  But now that I know they're not real anymore, there's nothing fun about the holidays anymore.  Especially...

    Its So Hard... When I Don't See Her.

    I dont like holidays as much anymore... because i always have to spend so much time grieving because i miss her so much... I just wish she was here, with me, always. I know I'd never get sick of her... School is what keeps us together, even though i hate it.

    Holidays Not As Much Fun Anymore

    Holidays are not as much fun because my parents,aunts,uncles,grandfathers most are passed on the few living are too busy or too far away. Have a little enjoyment with one of my sisters but it's not the same as family getting together for Christmas.

    I've mostly dated and am currently happily married to a "big girl". I'm quite positive that they've all had as much fun in life as the next girl and in some cases more.
