I hate the holidays
It reminds me of everything I don't have
And everything I'm not

I hate Halloween 'cause well,
I don't get it.

I hate Thanksgiving 'cause
Unlike everyone else,
I don't get to go home
To my big family and a huge turkey
Nope. I get to stay here...

I hate Christmas cause
Well again, I don't get to just go home
And I have never felt like such
an unrequested family member than at Christmas time

I hate the holiday season
'cause it reminds me of how miserable I really am

5 years, 5 miserable holiday seasons

Wake me up when December ends...

I hate Halloween as well... it seems rather pointless, I'll say.

But unlike you, I get to be home for Christmas (and this a bit unfortunate!!)
