I so agree, Tammy~ I do not put Christmas decorations up anymore as I feel it has gotten too commercial and so far away from what it was intended for. I am usually not at home during the Christmas season and am so thankful to be away from all the drama and hustle bustle. This year was the first to be at home in a very long time...it was very different for us. We donated dry goods to the pantries instead of gift giving and it was very liberating. When I want to give a gift during the year without expectation, I will do that. I do love people but things get so strange during the holidays that people act badly, unfortunately.
As far as negative news on FB, I generally won't even read or look at it.
