Why does time seem to go so much faster than when we were young?

Maybe this isn't a real question, but it seems like time seems to go by so much faster than when we were kids. Seems like this year just started and now Christmas is less than 4 months away. Not that it's Christmas in general, but just the fact that it seems like it was just here. Are we really THAT busy???

  • It's because now, as adults, we have so many things we HAVE to do that we hardly get to do what we WANT to do. As a kid, we didn't have to hold down a job, run a household and raise kids. All we had to do was be a kid.

  • Because as kids we have nothing to worry about.

  • Like butterfly said, as kids our only worries was putting off bed, forgetting to brush our teeth, and if we could get in 10 more minutes of play time.
    Now, we worry for ourselves, our family, our home. There's not as much chill time.
