While the holiday season is generally a lot of fun, it’s also a time of repetition — the same songs, the same movies, the same conversations with elderly relatives. And it’s no different online. If your news feed has been filled with memes, elves, and Christmas countdowns, here are four holiday posts you won’t miss after tomorrow:
Elf on the Shelf
By tomorrow, the elf on the shelf will be back in his box, and he’ll be taking the pictures and debates with him. If your Facebook friends have been making you feel bad for not having the time or inclination to take part in the trend yourself, you can look forward to eleven months free of elf-induced guilt. That’s plenty of time to search Pinterest for next year's ideas (or craft an elf-shaped voodoo doll in preparation for the onslaught).
I’m so glad you had time to bake twenty different types of holiday treat while I had twenty different deadlines to meet. Now, unless you’re going to bring those cookies to my desk, can you please stop making me hungry?
If Someone Says Happy Christmas…
Then you say, YES, THANK YOU, I don’t need you to tell me to be polite when somebody says something nice. My mom doesn’t even do that anymore. Now stop filling my news feed with spam.
“War on Christmas”
If you celebrate Christmas, that’s fine. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, that’s also fine. If you spend the holiday season posting hate-bait about how the government/media/whatever is erasing Christmas by wishing you Happy Holidays instead, then YOU are the one ruining the festive spirit. Have some eggnog and shut up.
The New Year countdowns are yet to come, but at least there’ll be no more elves for a while. What holiday posts are you sick of seeing? Let us know in the comments!
