The Holidays are Over


Well, my holidays are anyways. I believe that Hanukkah starts this week, but seeing as how I’m not Jewish it doesn’t really pertain to me. And for those of you saying to yourself, “What about New Years?” Is this really a holiday? I mean sure we get a day off of work and I’m grateful for that, but it’s just another day in my mind. The holiday symbolizes the start of another day… Most holidays are usually religious or commemorative, like memorial day, labor day, veterans day, etc. New Years is just a Thursday this year… and it will just be another day next year. It’s just an excuse to drink I guess, even though I won’t really be drinking too much this NYE.

But anyways, for those of you that did celebrate Christmas last week, was it a good one? We got together with my dad’s side of the family the Saturday before Christmas and had a good time. Almost everyone from out of town made it and a few kids got shot with modified nerf guns, which are pretty fucking cool (I’ll have a post about them sometime soon). Then Christmas Eve we got together with my mom’s side of the family and got drunk and gambled. Well I didn’t get drunk, but watching your uncles try to put their shoes on after a few shots is pretty amusing. And I didn’t win any money in Left, Right, Center, but I didn’t lose a whole lot either. After that I went over to the g/f’s family friends house and saw all of them before heading back to my parensts house to sleep on the couch.

Christmas day we all woke up and opened presents, it was weird having everyone back in the house again since everyone moved out, but it was good. Got some good stuff then headed down to the g/f’s condo to have lunch with her and her family and exchange gifts. Then I headed back up to my parents house since we have family and friends over on Christmas afternoon/night and then it was back home.

All in all it was a good Christmas. I enjoyed having 5 days off of work, but wish I could take off more time. Especially since I got here this morning to find the power out at work, the generator is currently powering the building, but the worst part is the generator is right outside our window and is loud as hell. I had a headache when I woke up this morning (I think I need to stop sleeping in my contacts), so this constant rumble isn’t helping. Ugh, shoot me.

So what was my holiday, how was everyone elses?
