The Swerve

Holiday Spirit? Not so much, Maria C., 610

Ah.

My favorite time of year.
The holiday season.
It’s a time of loving, giving gifts, eating food…. being a family.
But, it’s also a time for asking “What do you celebrate?’
Christmas?
Hanukkah?
Kwanzaa?
But why does that matter?
Why should we be judged for what holiday we celebrate?
Or the foods we eat?
Or the clothes we wear?
What our bodies look like.
Even the color of our skin.
Why? Just, why?
So, I say that I celebrate the winter.
