As a lead-in to the lovely Thanksgiving holidays, here’s something I’m not thankful for–critics (yes, I get the irony). It seems like every year it gets more and more popular to criticize basically everything. Sarcasm is now becoming the default language for “cool people.”
“I hate . . . ” “I know, right!” If I hear that phrase one more time. . . Ugh!!
The world of fashion is naturally the shining example. Society was all about the Ugg boots (never really my fave–I prefer riding boots), right up until someone needed to say their piece. Suddenly, everyone else feels the need to jump on the bandwagon. Have you even thought about how rude that is?!? If you hated it that much, you should have said something before most little girls had to have a pair.
Technology, yeah that’s another HUGE area. Either you’re the idiot with an electronic that’s “ancient” or you’re the idiot who rushed right out there to “buy up the latest item when you don’t really need it.” Classic rock and hard place.
What is making me really tired is that it now extends to Holidays. I hated it clear back when everyone was ragging on Christmas. Admittedly, I probably spend way too much on a holiday that should focus on the celebration of my Lord. But I throw Him a heck of a party. You personally may have lost sight of the “Reason for the Season,” but excuse me if I partially remember God’s gift to us by giving my Aunt that beautiful statue she loves so much. Really, no one asked for you to rain on my parade.
Now it’s been extended to other holidays! Continue reading
