Christmas Eve 2015

Christmas Eve is the night before Christmas. It’s when Christmas fever is burning most fervently, right before the holiday completely crushes your spirit. Christmas Eve is kind of weird. It’s a precursor holiday. It’s holiday to honor another holiday. I suppose it’s really not that bad. There used to be twelve days of Christmas. Now we are down to two. It’s when slackers do their last minute shopping. It’s when TBS starts to play the 24-hour A Christmas Story marathon.

I was walking towards the metro station earlier tonight in downtown San Francisco and it was eerily quiet. There was hardly anybody on the sidewalks or on the streets. I glanced at my phone for the time and it was only 7:30 pm. Still early, but all the people were gone. It made me smile. I knew that almost everybody was somewhere they wanted to be. With their families. With their friends. Maybe at the bar. Maybe chilling with at home with Netflix. Christmas Eve may not be an official holiday but it certainly feels like one. Merry Christmas, I love you all. Thanks for reading the bullshit I feel compelled to write.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve in the night before Christmas. It’s the longest night of the year when you’re a kid. It’s the ultimate deadline for buying presents when you’re an adult. Christmas Eve is the night that Santa flies around delivering presents to Christian kids with chimneys. It’s the night when families go on walks to look at houses more festive then theirs. It’s the night when bored twenty-somethings flee the house and find refuge in hometown bars. It’s the night when lonely people stand anxiously under mistletoe. It’s the final night to sing carols and watch holiday movies and drink eggnog because you’ll be too burnt out on the season to celebrate the next night. Christmas Eve is the peak evening for Christmas. Everybody knows that Christmas interest starts to wane after opening presents on Christmas morning. It’s a fact. I read it on Wikipedia. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals… and a happy New Year.
