An Unfamiliar Christmas

I've wanted to write something all day but I guess I didn't really know where to begin, maybe I was hoping for the day to go a bit differently, but it didn't. This has been the weirdest Christmas, ever. It just felt like an ordinary day, I didn't even get out of bed until 12:30pm, pretty bad, I know. We usually always do presents at like 8am, I went downstairs and it was business as usual. I didn't get a great deal of stuff but I didn't ask for anything and I hate to say it but I'm too old for presents now. That being said, I was very grateful for what I got; even the Super Mario onesie from my mum....

We had Christmas dinner but...we didn't eat together. It was so bizarre, I honestly don't know how to feel about it all. I'm not close with my family but this is the day that I do want us all to be together and just love and appreciate one another. I saw pictures on Facebook of my nan and my auntie over at my cousins and stuff but my parents didn't seem interested in going. I feel like they are a bit salty that nobody wants to come here anymore, I don't know. Either way, today sucked. I'm pretty disappointed. My mum was in a better mood but I don't know, I just feel very weird about everything. My sister is apparently coming here with her boyfriend on Thursday so we will supposedly have a 'Christmas dinner' then to make up for things.

I've never felt less Christmassy in my life, after presents I literally just played Final Fantasy XIV with two of my friends, almost all day. It was fun but it wasn't how I wanted or expected to spend my Christmas. I suppose the highlight of the day was listening to my father shout 'Alexa! Play Mike's playlist!" repeatedly.

I hope everybody had a blast and got everything they wanted!
