Not all celebrate
WHY is it pathetic?
One could almost say it’s pathetic, passing comment on people when you don’t know the individual’s circumstances for being there.
Not everyone celebrates Christmas; not everyone has a loving family to spend Christmas with. Some people have and may want a break.
Where does it say that over Christmas Day and Boxing Day, you have to sit in your house and not move one inch outside your front door?
If you say that at any other time of the year they will think you are mad.
Yes, it rubbish that people have to work Boxing Day, but there are some who may be glad of the escape.
