December

When it is raining outside and chilly, and everything looks sad and miserable, I just turn on The Hallmark Channel, and engross myself in the scenes that somebody else’s family and love are pleasantly gathered around…

This doesn’t sound pathetic, does it?

 

アメリカでは、十一月末の感謝祭からいよいよ「ホリデーシーズン」で盛り上がっています。街頭では寄付を乞う鈴の音が聞かれ、テレビではクリスマスに関連した映画やプレゼント向けに買い物を誘うコマーシャルなどが多く見られます。

人恋しくなるのは、こんな時です。

犬達にプレゼントを買ってあげて、話しかけている自分に、ふと、気が付いたりします。

つまらない話をいつも聞いてくれる友達や、何かと世話をやいてくれる家族。そういう人達に囲まれたい、と思います。

人間はやはり一人では生きていけない動物なんだと、つくづく思うわけです。

    No it doesn’t sound pathetic. Many people spend the Christmas holidays alone, though it must be hard for you still. Our dog gets gifts during holidays too! He’s going to get a new collar this year. 🙂

    Not at all, if it helps you forget the misery outside. I watch Indian shows to make-believe I am in India. It’s maybe why I like television so much – I feel like I am a part of everything that I see. And that’s also why I don’t sleep after I watch scary movies 🙂
