How do you celebrate Christmas as a teenager?
I know it’s a little early to be talking about Christmas, but I was just thinking about it. As much as I want to believe in Santa Claus, I know it’s starting to look ridiculous. My parents still continue to have me go to sleep early and wake up to presents under the tree. I feel awkward about saying anything about it and a bit depressed about having to grow up. I’m the youngest and I know they’re only doing it for me. To be honest, I don’t want anything to change, but I think something has to. I know for a fact that everything we do looks super stupid to my other family members and if any of my friends knew, they’d never let me live it down. Is it possible to keep our tradition without me having to act like I believe in Santa? I wonder what we’ll do when I’m an adult. Should I talk to them about it? What happens when I go to college? What do parents do for Christmas when they’re kids leave?
