Every time a holiday rolls around, do you ever wonder what it would be like to not celebrate anything? No presents under a colorful tree? No dressing up and eating candy? No hunting for eggs?  I, from personal experience can tell you what it’s like. Now don’t go pitying me because I don’t mind not celebrating anything, Now what is it like to live without celebrating any holidays? Here is what some people say:

Becky: For me it would be the hardest listening to people talk about all the holidays.

Aubrey: I’d miss the holiday spirit.

Charlotte: I would miss spending time with family.

Now it may look like it would be horrible to not be able to celebrate almost anything but I haven’t celebrated anything my whole life, therefore I can really be sad about it. Here is what it would be like to not celebrate during these times:

Halloween: During Halloween I don’t dress up or anything I just go about my day like any other day. So I don’t Trick or Treat or go to a party… or  anything that you people do.  

CHRISTMAS: During Christmas I mostly try and ignore annoying Christmas carols and buy candy canes cause I can, and I like them. When I get home there is no tree and no presents, but sometimes my parents will buy us something a little before Christmas time to make sure we don’t feel left out.

Valentines Day: I accept candy because why not, and I just go about my day like any normal human being.

Although I don’t celebrate anything I can’t miss what I never had so I don’t feel bad or anything, but my friends are really nice when it comes to holidays.
