Yes, it can be a confusing time of year, can't it? We spend so much time planning and spending and getting caught up in the commercialism of it all, that when we finally stop and take a breath, we often find a sort of hollow emptiness to it all...a feeling of not feeling quite the way we should, I suppose.
Anyway, well done on this - a more realistic take on this 'special' time of year...
I love this piece, reflecting on your feelings around Xmas. I thought to myself the other day, when I was a child there was no internet shopping, and my town was busy with shoppers.
Now its mad - even with internet shopping, the town feels even crazier and busy. Its all a different story being older haha
