Christmas and New Years

Two things all over the place are 1.) Christmas and 2.) New Year, so how can I not have an opinion about it and not write about it? Starting with Christmas, I must say I love the entire Christmas feeling – the cold I always seem to catch during the season, the Christmas carols that I can tweak in a funny way and laugh my guts out, the Santa Claus delusion, the red color tacky decor everywhere and the holiday from office. Ha!

Let’s go one by one, what is with the cold and flu? No matter how much caution I show I ALWAYS end up with a red nose and sore throat. Crazy. And Santa Claus? I mean I like the man and all that, but it is not funny how much people are deluded by him. He is arguably the most suspicious character I’ve known. Ever wondered how his name ‘Santa’ is so similar to ‘Satan’? hehe. Anyway, my favorite is the RED theme all over the place – malls and shops and even offices. I love the color! And the office off – just made my day 😀 And before I move on to the next topic of the post, may I ask why some people insist on calling it ‘X-Mas’? I never understood this name, seriously. I mean c’mon people, Christmas is celebrated because ‘Christ’ was born on this day, not someone called ‘X’. Or are they people who are fans of the ‘X-Men’ series? Whatever.

Okay, so my last year’s carol was very popular (I would like to believe it, at least). Did I forget my Christmas carol version this year? Here goes:

Joy to the world,
the mall burned down
And all the dresses died
And all the shoes
are big time doomed
And poor people like me sing
And poor people like me sing
And poor, and people, like me sing


Joy to the world,
the mall burned down
And all the lingerie’s gone
And the bags that stare
and perfumes that glare
Are no more there to fear
Are no more there to fear
No more, no more for me to fear

Sing it, it is fucking amazing. Genius, me. (proud smile)

Moving on. New Year. 5 days from today. I’m almost done with the final draft of my New Year resolution which came down to 2 points from 119 points in 2 days. I still have to rethink on these 2 points. Hehe. Anyway, I have to flaunt that I am off to Goa tomorrow for my new year celebration (why do you think I included ‘New Year’ in this post then?). Totally cool, isn’t it? Well, actually it was a last minute plan and I blew all my money in the air fare and the beach parties have all been canceled but what the hell, this is my 1st time in Goa and I think I’ll have fun. Oh please now, dont you start with the Goa-is-on-a-high-alert stuff and go ahead and be jealous of me. 🙂 Wishing a happy new year to all of you and a great fun filled peaceful colorful year ahead.
Love, Aditi.
