I think I'm falling into the apathy department. It's just another day, in many ways. It IS an excuse to see the kids and my granddaughter. But it's also stressful and expensive and I wonder if all holidays have lost their meaning. Think about Veteran's Day, admittedly not a big or popular one, but my husband has often said, with a smile, "There's no point to it. Vets all work while government workers get paid time off and the kids don't go to school." It's lost it's meaning. The only holiday I kind of still think has kept it's meaning is Thanksgiving. I'm not one of those holiday haters because we don't have to deal with toxic relations. However, it also is not the big deal to me that it used to be when I was much younger. And I don't mean a kid. Living in a Jewish house, I never saw Christmas!!! I didn't even know it was a big holiday since almost everyone who lived near me was Jewish...hehe. When I first married my first hub, Christmas was HUGE to me. Now it's just...kind of...a reason to spend money??? How do you feel?
