What you need to do this Christmas

Does your Christmas feel like mine?
I really want to know.
Is it just me?
Am I missing something or you feel the same way too.
My house is packed with 17 extended family members yet I feel so lonely and left out;
I feel so old at such a young age.
I don't hear the giggle bells or see the imaginary snow men I use to see when I was 7.
I didn't reflect back to the birth of Jesus like I did last year.
I don't see the essence why everyone was so busy in the market on December 24th
Or why things were so expensive.

I don't get why there is a rush.
I don't get why lovebirds are making me feel like I'll die single before next year.
I don't get why there is so much alcohol in the fridge or why my street is decorated with colourful ribbons.
I don't understand why money is being knocked out for a two seconds loud sounded pleasure, disturbing the innermost part of my brains.
I don't understand why the traffic kept me for 3 hours today on my way back from the market on the 24th (I was forced to go by my granny).

I don't get it because the society is....or rather has built a vague thought in our minds over time.
It has distracted us from essense and imprisoned us in pretence.
We no longer see Christmas as a time when the saviour was born but as a time to just celebrate  (For reasons we don't even recongise).
Marketers see it as a time to promote their businesses,
Girls see it as the best time to open their legs.
We see it as a time to explore rather than to secure our minds for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Or as a time to just be happy (by force) for reasons we actually can't deep our hands into.

Christmas is today right?
See that as a reason for the very first time to scream "Thank God its Sunday" 
"TGIS" or "TGIC" (or whatever you wanna scream).
See it as a time to appreciate the fact that a saviour was born onto you.
As a time to be glad, happy, generous, all because one man took it upon him self to take the bullets  (oh! Sorry.....The nails) for your sake.
And maybe......I might have a beautiful reason to not feel lonely is the midst of more than a dozen loved ones.
