It's the most wonderful time of the year...apparently...

'Tis the season to be jolly. Unless you are emo in which case Christmas time is a legit struggle from start to finish. Here are just a few reasons why...


1) You keep hearing the opening note of 'Jingle Bells' and thinking it's the intro to 'Welcome To The Black Parade'.


Don't start your carol with a G note if you ain't gonna caaaarrrryyyyy ooooonnnnnn!


2) Your converse aren't waterproof enough to cope with the snowy weather.


Yeah, there are winter versions available but you just didn't plan ahead...


3) Grandma keeps asking why you are wearing so much eyeliner.


"Is this what the kids are doing these days? Is it supposed to be a costume? Are you just tired?".


4) Mom keeps removing your homemade ornaments from the tree.


Why shouldn't there be a star at the top in the shape of Patrick Stump's face?


5) The seasonal music is all way too cheery...


Where is the spoken word breakdown into the screamed final chorus?


6) ...And playing MCR's 'All I Want For Xmas Is You' is just too much!





7) You want to watch 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' but your family all think it's a Halloween movie.



8) Your skinny jeans don't match the Christmas sweater your aunt knitted you and you are now being forced to wear.



9) You wanna look festive while wearing all black which is IMPOSSIBLE!



10) When Santa asks what you want for Christmas, you know he won't actually bring you shirtless Brendon Urie.



11) No mall elf ever looks as good as Pete Wentz did.



12) Fingerless gloves are not a great idea in this weather.


Is that frostbite on your nails?


Happy Holidays Emo Kids! (Don't worry, it will all be over soon...)
