It's not that I hate it, but I really am not into it. I don't decorate, I don't do Christmasy things (very much) in my classroom, and I don;t enjoy Christmas shopping or even getting gifts. The extra traffic, all the money I'm expected to spend, the hours I lose at my other job going to the school's Christmas party....I feel like a grinch! I think it's mostly because my parents divorced a few years ago, and since then 2 grandparents and several aunts and uncles have passed away...it's just not the same. Plus I live 650 miles from home, so my visits are short for the holidays. But this year I won't be going home at all because I'm trying to save money and move out of my place into something a little nicer. Am I alone, or are there others that feel a little blase about the holidays?
