... from the bottom of my oesophagus.
There, I said it. I can try to be merry now.
The only thing that helps is that this is possibly the last Christmas I will ever have to celebrate: I plan on being on call for each and every yucky holiday from not until the day I retire.
Oh, and if you do enjoy the holidays, well, good for you, and sorry for the snark. I don't like cola drinks but I'm ok with people liking the stuff. Let's be mature and accept that some people feel the same way about Christmas. Just because I don't like it doesn't mean we can't be friends.
If you're like me, survive and think that it'll all be over soon. Sadly, in Spain we have the Three Kings on the 8th, so the whole family-meal thing won't be over until then. Congratulate yourself thinking that your Christmas is almost over.
If you actually like the Holidays, have a merry one with lots of gifts and lots of pie.
