I know you are reading the title and thinking that I am a hater of Christmas. That is completely not true. I absolutely love Christmas and it is one of my favourite times of the year, but there are some downsides to this wonderful occasion. This is the fourth time I have done this time of post and I have so much fun creating the drawings to describe my feelings or opinions. Although I am not the greatest artist in the world, it allows me to portray my thoughts in a creative way which I hope you enjoy. Anyway, what is so bad about Christmas?
1. Never a White Christmas
Where I live in the world, it never snows. For the third year in a row, it looks like it will not be a White Christmas. It seems a tradition all over the world for it to snow and is always mentioned in TV shows, films and songs that it is never Christmas, without snow. I really do not know why it does not snow, perhaps because of the conditions or climate or even because we are just unfortunate. Why are we so unlucky?
2. Fairy Lights Fail
Fairy lights are a colourful way to brighten your home. Everyone has them, it is a staple this time of year. So, when they do not work, it feels like Christmas is ruined. Literally. It is really annoying when one light breaks and then all of the others break. Then, you have wasted some money!
3. TV Shows and Films Repeated
Loads of brilliant entertainment comes out at Christmas. However, there seems to be the need to re-broadcast the same film or show about one hundred times. I absolutely love festive films and shows, they are probably one of my favourite things about Christmas. But, don’t show me that film that was on yesterday!
4. Christmas Shopping Catastrophe
Everyone needs to buy presents, Christmas is the time for giving! But why does everyone leave it to the last minute? The stores at this time of year are absolutely crammed full of people, wanting to buy gifts for their loved ones. It is a complete nightmare and pure torture if you ask me.
5. October is not Christmas
October is not Christmas, simple as that. Please do not stock Christmas goods in October. October is for Halloween and Halloween only. No one wants a mince pie in September or wants to book a table in August. Do not show Christmas advertisements before December. It is simple human logic!
I just wanted to say that I am not a Scrooge and I do love Christmas. But there are some downsides to this wonderful time of year. I am actually going to be posting my five reasons why I love Christmas very soon so keep an eye out!
