My dad passed away right before christmas ten years ago. Out of nowhere we got the news. After that we did not celebrate holidays for about 3 years. I was a Scrooge and could not stand to see others happy during the holiday season. And the empty spot at the get together was enough to break your heart. But finally I realized that even if it is fake christmas spirit you still feel better and happy than if you Scrooge it. It was very hard at first but now we celebrate together no matter what. And even though a part of me will always hate and despise the thanksgiving and christmas season, I will always give 100 % to being festive and a fanatic. I do it because I want to be happy and because I know it is what my dad would want.
HAPPY EARLY THANKSGIVING WHOO HOO
