Blue Christmas (MMX)

I’m looking forward to tonight’s Blue Christmas worship service (https://christiannoob.wordpress.com/2010/01/about-seven-months-later/). I’m glad that there’s such a thing as a Christmas service for those of us who are blue (sad, depressed, troubled, lonesome, etc; in my case, all the latter). Sometimes Christmas (the Mass of the Christ, the celebration of the coming of Messiah, the incarnation of God) isn’t as joyful for some (myself included) as it seems to be for the majority of others.

I must admit that I’m always blue during Christmas, which stopped being fun over two decades ago. This is simply not my favorite time of the year. Now with my son suffering a seizure (https://christiannoob.wordpress.com/2010/11/my-sons-first-ever-seizure/), I feel even worse. In the past ten days or so, I’ve been able to see deeper into the soul of those so-called experts who once promised to look after the sick and especially the handicapped. Hence I’m in no mood to be joyful. It hurts deeply to see him not being able to enjoy the whole “holiday” charade and the stupid TV specials like other children. As someone told me last night, there’s a possibility that any day could be my son’s last and I simply don’t have any intention of burying my son so early in his broken and limited life.

One thing that’s made it easier for me to cope with all the charade of love and joy charade of the season has been listening to my all-time favorite Christmas record, Excelsis v.2 ~ a winter’s song (http://www.projekt.com/projekt/product.asp?sku=PRO00092) with goth rock bands interpreting Christmas songs much more beautifully than I’ve ever heard them.

In all, this will be another dark and depressing Christmas. I might just lock myself in my room and watch Japanese horror/gore movies or whatever I might be in the mood for. Of course, my mother as usual will try to cheer me up and fail miserably only making me more upset.

On a good note, during the Christmas services, I’d try to help as much as I can and feel useful serving God in some cheap way — all the while feeling miserable inside. Hopefully I’d be able to hold on to whatever’s left of my faith.
