I hope that you have a good day

So I hope that you all had a great day yesterday however it was spent. Whether you celebrate it or not, and that’s all good. My day started off with excitement when we were woken up in the middle of the night, the people who lived across the road have a brush fence. We had a loud repetitive banging on the door and when we ventured out, the fence was on fire, and the fire was so fierce, that we actually thought that the house was on fire.

Which then kind of set the feeling for the day. I haven’t had to go to a partners family thing in a really long time. I think I’ve only actually had to do it once or twice, and I was exhausted!

I think one of the reasons I didn’t feel a Christmassy this year, was this whole “attack on Christmas thing”. This may come as a shock as some, but not everyone celebrates Christmas, for various reasons. The world is made of very different people, different backgrounds, different beliefs or “non-beliefs”. If they want to say Happy Holidays, they are absolutely allowed too…No one is making you say Happy Holidays. Say Merry Christmas if you want, but understand something…

NOT EVERYTHING REVOLVES AROUND YOU

NOT EVERYONE CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS

IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOU

I think it’s the main reason I LOVE celebrating Christmas with my Mum’s side, we just are so laid-back, if someone’s late, or if someone ‘accidentally’ says “Happy Holidays” it’s perfectly fine.

Welcome to my multicultural life…

Blame the alcohol, blame the tired mind from a long week. I really do love my multicultural life.

I have gay people, religious people, jock people, nerdy people and they are all truly wonderful in their own little ways. However, I do feel extremely uncomfortable whenever I have to read someone saying that we should get rid of “that whole group”. Doesn’t really matter which way it goes, it really doesn’t. Whenever you say “all” of a group, to me, you become lesser than that WHOLE group.

Sure, get rid of the extremist in any group, they are typically always dangerous and really feed the hatred and fear.

But anyone who can say this man should be “gotten rid of” has something seriously wrong with them!
