The Grinch’s thoughts of not joining the Christmas Party.
Christmas, as we Christians know it, is all about having fun, giving, and on top of it, celebrating Jesus Christ’s birth by way of a joyful, love and bountiful feast. It’s the culture of us Catholics especially Filipinos to plan for a party in this yuletide season which can be experience in either big or small institutions or even in simple groups of camaraderie or acquaintances meeting together and get wasted the next day. 🙂
Enough of that festive view of Christmas, but instead, let’s look at the other side which is more opposite, a little dark. Haven’t you heard of The Grinch? The Christmas villain who might be at any moment in this season, stole the spirit spreading in town? And in honor of this unrecognized Christmas icon, I create this post… thoughts of how The Grinch finds an alternative way of celebrating Christmas. 🙂
So what are the reasons why The Grinch doesn’t join parties on Christmas season? First and foremost, The Budget, The Grinch might have an instinct of any other known economist. The Grinch might thought that on that small amount of money that would spend from gifts (another cause why The Grinch decides to reject a Christmas party invite. HeHe. :D) and food, it would be an appropriate way to spend it on preparing the December 25 event (sounds reasonable though. :D). Second, as what was mention a while ago, The Gifts, The Grinch might thought that the person whom will receiving the gift from The Grinch, might not like it. Let’s face it, for every person living in this changing world has different but unique traits, and The Grinch might have a personal bothering commotion inside if the recipient is trying to appreciate the present what The Grinch had prepared for right? It’s all about how lucky you are if The Grinch didn’t picked your name. HeHe. 😀 And thirdly, the personal decision to avoid the things that disturbs The Grinch, if only people know the story behind why The Grinch hates Christmas, it’s for the reason that no one ever sympathize or empathize what The Grinch feels whenever there’s no one care for what The Grinch might reacted. Rather The Grinch is a victim of people who are SO MEAN and RIDICULE to those beings like them (not accepted their physical aspects by many as people become judgmental and mock).
To that note, The Grinch is snubbing any Christmas Party RSVP. On the contrary, The Grinch is concepting another option of celebrating it with the people who understands, cares, accepts and loves The Grinch the most… FAMILY. Yes indeed?! They are the one support group The Grinch would be ever rely on whenever… if ever… if and only if… the WORLD is SO AGAINST to The Grinch. 🙂
Maybe some people have their own Grinch in their own selves, but may they not forget the ONE MAIN REASON why Catholics commemorates Christmas. It’s the celebration of the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ that merely changes our lives in His own ways. That’s one thing we SHALL THANK for eternally… being saved and forgive from our sins. 🙂
P.S. HAPPY CHRISTMAS to you who wasted time in reading this – The Grinch (Just Kidding?! :D)
