What kind of person doesn’t like Christmas?

The kind who would get their hopes up every year when they were told this year would be different, just to be told on Christmas Eve Santa didn’t know where we were living this year.

The kind who asked for help paying bills or a gift card for groceries instead of gifts, but got told no because that ‘wasn’t any fun’.

The kind who is wondering what to sell so that her daughter doesn’t have the same kind of Christmas’ she did growing up.

The kind that is so stressed the month leading up to Christmas that she can’t eat and cries herself to sleep every night.

Christmas is broken promises and empty gestures so I'm the kind of person that doesn't like Christmas.

And it’s cold out.

I'm so sorry you are going through this and that Christmas makes it worse. I'm not a big Christmas lover, myself. There are so many expectations around it, for so many there is bound to be some sort of feeling of pain or stress. I don't have any family around me, and very few friends here. I don't buy presents for anyone. For me, I just wait until it's over and in the meantime try to occupy myself with things I love. Hope things get better for you. How cold is it? Hug.
