At first I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope you can enjoy the people around you & the food.
I have deeply respect for those who suffer from a eating disorder and those who are addicted to alcohol. Be strong these days, try to eat, try to enjoy without throwing up. And if you are going to drink, behave yourself when you get too impulsive. You all are so strong.
Also my love goes to those who are alone these days. No matter if it’s about having no friends or family, or if everyone passed away. Make a good day for yourself, watch christmas movies, turn on christmas music, and buy yourself something nice.
And I wish all the strength for those who have to celebrate Christmas with the one who raped them, or abused them.
I wish you all the love from the whole world, and a very merry Christmas.
Usually Maka wasn’t one for holiday decorations or the holiday season in general. She had grown up in a household where Thanksgiving and Christmas weren’t exactly family get togethers one wanted to attend willingly. The day had always started out with cordial greetings and sweet smiles from both her parents, but by the end of the night — before the dinner was even on the table — they were always at each others throats and found drinking to be the solution to their problems. So it was no surprise to anyone that Maka didn’t particularly enjoy celebrating holidays, even when she was older.
However, when she rekindled her relationship with Soul, she swore to change that aspect about herself. Unlike her, the man actually enjoyed the holiday season — loved them was a more adequate way to put it. He was the type of person who sang Christmas carols around the house, bought the tree a month ahead of schedule, decorated the tree before the first snow graced the ground outside, and gave presents that had been pre-planned months ahead for his loved ones. She had been well aware of this when they dated in college and the knowledge did not leave her as she grew older.
Which was why she wanted to make their first Christmas together as a married couple special in some way.
