Ten reasons to hate Christmas Eve. Shopping, Family, Carols, Gifts… Yes, because not everybody loves that celebrated night, because we have the right to be different.

Christmas Eve is a truly expensive celebration and with the current crisis, I have no money and banks do not give loans.

Everyone will ask me for my work and I’ve been fired.

Everyone will ask me about my future plans and I have none (or inclination). Sorry, I have the right to be different.

Instead of listening to jazz or rock, I have to hear stupid carols and even (still worse) to sing them with a big smile.

I am a vegetarian, I hate roast turkey. I like to drink whiskey and I’ll have champagne (as always).

I’ll have dinner with my in-laws and I do not like them (not at all). Although the worst is having to put up with the children of my brothers.

This Christmas Eve all the family come to my house and now, I have to be cleaned to avoid being criticized. Reward: a horrible gift that I do not like.

How about my elegant suit? I prefer to wear jeans.

I would not be able to sleep in my bed, a guest (or several) will get hold of it.

I could be on the beach and not holding this mess.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

Merry Christmas (anyway).
