I have a love and hate relationship with Christmas.
I love Christmas but I hate the getting of presents of it and how we are bombarded with Christmas music and people pushing and shoving during shopping.
Christmas is too commercialized and people spend enough money to go broke on presents and then have a hard time making ends meet after Christmas.
My mom would go out on a spending spree and then have a hard time paying the bills and I feel so bad taking gifts from her when I know she is gonna be broke as a result and be making payments on credit cards for gifts she really cannot afford.
I would be happier if she didn't spend a lot of money and we just had each other.
That's one reason why I dread Christmas because I know she's gonna spend too much money on gifts and then struggle with the bills afterwards.
