Not Into the Christmas Spirit this Year

This has been such a weird holiday season around here. I cannot seem to summon up much enthusiasm for it. My brother is possibly getting a divorce and my family has grown so small. Of my nuclear family, there is only my brother, my sister and me. My sister had two kids who are grown with kids of their own now and we don’t get to see them much. Without children around, it isn’t nearly as much fun and since most of us rarely drink anymore – there is no more Hot Damn going around the room as we used to do. Christmas was something I never celebrated until I was an adult anyway, as the religion I grew up in forbade it. So I always have mixed emotions about it all. Is there anybody else out there with the same malaise as I have?
