2015, if we sum it up, is the year viral sensations—to #AlDub, to #APEChottie, and of course, #tanimbala. With all the big things that happened this year, Christmas somehow feels like just another trending hashtag.
Even if you put together Jose Mari Chan, Ayala Triangle’s Lights and Sounds show, and all Christmas sales, Christmas still feels like a few months away instead of 11 days, and here are 8 reasons why.
8. Payday seems so far away
Christmas is the season of giving, but seeing all the sales and bazaars everywhere while your wallet has recently become the world’s latest sinkhole just doesn’t make you believe that Christmas is truly in your heart.
7. You still have to work
6. Simbang gabi
5. The Adele feels
4. The politics
3. The heat
We still havn’t gotten used to summer in December. Our feelings are all mixed up. Our seasonal affective disorder can’t even get it right. Isn’t this supposed to be the last -ber month of the year?
2. The traffic
1. The disheartening global news
You may say that news like these make the holidays feel less like the joyous season it’s supposed to be, it’s better to look at it as a chance to understand the true meaning of gift-giving.
