I think that outlook started as a kid, we didnt have birthday parties. Eventually, what with my travels, it got to the point where holidays passed unnoticed, eventually becoming more of an annoyance than a celebration.
I think many folk are puzzled at my disregard for holiday conventions.
Apart from being aware that most places will be closed, theyre just another day to me really.
Maybe if I have a family, I might do traditions, but eh.
The New York Fox 5 weather woman took the morning weather job @ the SF CBS station here. It's her first Christmas away from the East Coast.
She looked so homesick when her co-workers brought up that fact, saying she had called her mom who replied "You'll be aight".
Christmas here out West is different, especially when you dont have anyone close around. I think the wide open spaces add to it.
Of course, we arent dealing with bad weather, although frankly - I like snow in winter.
Yeah, one could go into the mountains, but it taint the same.
