My True Feelings About Christmas | Blogmas Day 3

Happy Blogmas Day 3 guys!

I'm gonna be honest, I'm not in the greatest mood, so I feel like this post is gonna come across a lot more ranty than I want it to.

So I'm just gonna dive straight into this, I'm falling out of love with Christmas.

I don't feel festive, I'm not excited, and I kind of just want to get to January so that we can have that 'new year new me' thing that everyone does, because I feel like I'm seriously in need of something new.

When it comes to the fact that I'm not even excited for my 21st birthday on the 12th, I don't know what's going on with me, I'm just not looking forward to anything.

Definitely in the last few years, Christmas has become a time where everyone just talks about how festive they are, how much they're looking forward to it, and all the stuff that they're excited to give and receive. And that's nice, but it definitely feels a bit shitty when you can't muster up that kind of excitement.

It's also becoming a bit commercialised - artists are bringing out Christmas music, YouTubers and celebs are raising the prices of their merch and stuff so that people will buy it to give to their friends and families over the festive period.

I guess for me, the weird thing about it is coming from a family that celebrates Christmas, and then being the one person who really doesn't want to.

And I guess in a way, my alternative take on Blogmas reflects this. This year and last I've shied away from having to write 24 Christmas posts, because it's not a period of time that I love as much as everyone else.

If I'm being really honest, the best thing about it is that there's a holiday from the middle of December until January.

So with my Blogmas, I've turned it into movie reviews, and posts that I can write without feeling down or upset about the fact that I don't feel as festive as everyone else.

And maybe that will change. I mean, I'm writing this on November 29th. So maybe everyone else has started getting festive way too early and I'm taking a normal amount of time to catch up. I don't know.

Anyway, let me know in the comments how festive you feel!

It's 22 days until Christmas!

Come back tomorrow for Blogmas Day 4!


  1. I completely get where you're coming from with Christmas becoming commercialized, I just prefer the whole hype of "oh look there's christmas lights outside!" I hope you fall back in love with Christmas, it might just be that it's a crazy, stressful and busy time of year xxx

    1. Yeah, I agree. To be honest, that 'Christmas lights' hype is something I still love about it. It's really pure xx
