    Christmas When I Was a Kid

    It seemed like Christmas didn't get rolling until after Thanksgiving when I was a kid in the 1970s. Today it seems that there are Christmas things up in stores starting in the summer and some stores have Christmas all year long.   Too much. Keep it special.

    Before Halloween, Even!

    You know how you LOVED your house when you first moved in but now it's old news? You know how you used to LOVE that song but now you've heard it so much that you're looking for something new 'cause you're bored? That's what you're doing to Christmas, America! Stop it already!

    It's honestly not funny. If I ever see or hear someone make a joke out of suicide, depression, self harm I automatically have no respect for them.
