I Hate Christmas Parties

Because I just can’t seem to shake it off…perhaps a bit more time.

I Hate Christmas Parties
Relient K

[Verse 1]
I hope it snows this week,
A snow flake on your cheek
Would make this Christmas so Beautiful
But that would just bring the pain
Cause things can’t stay the same
These Holidays won’t be wonderful

[Chorus]
I look under the tree
But there’s nothing to see
Cause it’s a broken heart that you’re giving me

I can’t figure you out
Is this what Christmas is all about
Cause it’s a broken heart that you’re giving me

[Verse 2]
I don’t wanna talk
I’m sick of all this talking
A broken heart wrapped up in a Box
This tear drops in my stocking

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I hate Christmas parties,
They offer me some punch,
But I just shrug
I hate Christmas parties
You and the cookie
Tray hear me say “Ba! Humbug”

Fa la la la la la…la la la la la la [x3]

[Chorus]

A Little Disappointment

Just a little one, really! Nothing serious, nothing horribly breathtaking. I’ll probably forget all about it soon, really soon; yeah that’s right.

We’re all human. Things happen to us. We feel it for a bit. We move on. That’s how it’s worked before, that’s how it continues to work, right? Maybe that’s just wishful thinking; that’s how we want it to be.

Sometimes though, there are those things that really hit you. Those that threaten to tear your entire being asunder because they’re so dire. You feel them in your heart, and they threaten to never go away – you’ll never get over them. No, no…that’s not how it is at all; that’s just how you feel.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

I’ll just have to take heart then…

Sending You a Little Christmas

Short entry today, since I really should be working on my work term report. Yesterday was my company’s Christmas party. Good food and good times all around. It’s been snowing pretty hard lately, so I’m not surprised that some people that I expected there didn’t end up showing up.

I sat at a table with the rest of the co-op students, and we had a jovial dinner discussion. The part that stuck in my mind the best, or worst as it may be, is a terse discussion of why I didn’t bring a guest. Well, sorry. Sorry that anybody I might have asked is either somewhere in Ontario, or is studying for finals, or even both.

On another note, I heard this really touching song on the radio today, so I’m posting the lyrics here to share. No reason in particular, really…

Sending You A Little Christmas
Jim Brickman (With Kristy Starling)

A photograph, a blanket
Some mistletoe, confetti snow
An angel to put on a tree.
Santa Claus in crayon,
To make you smile today;
While you’re so far away.

[Chorus]
So I’m sending you a little Christmas,
Wrapped up with love.
A little peace, a little light,
To remind you of
How I’m waiting for you, praying for you
I wanted you to see.
So I’m sending you a little Christmas,
Till you come home to me.

Some gingerbread, a candy cane
A stocking I made with your name.
I filled it with your favorite things.
A way to say I love you,
Like kisses through the air
Hoping you’ll feel me there.

[Chorus]

Home – into these arms of mine.
Home where you belong.

[Chorus]

Home, till you come home, To me.
