Ozzy Osbourne Is in the Holiday Spirit in True Ozzy Fashion

With Christmas less than a few weeks away, rock music legend Ozzy Osbourne is showing off his holiday spirit in true Ozzy fashion. 

“The Holiday Season is Here,” Ozzy Osbourne declared in his post, which features a snapshot of him wearing a Gremlins-themed ugly Christmas sweater while he’s rocking his signature “devil horns” gesture.

Ozzy Osbourne previously spoke to Metal Head Zone in 2018 about how he actually wasn’t a fan of Christmas. “I’ve been saying to Sharon forever, ‘F– Christmas, I hate it.’ It’s for shopaholics and kids. And so I’ve always wanted to work through Christmas.

The rocker also admitted in the 2009 interview that the only Christmas he enjoyed was in 2003 when he was unconscious following a quad-biking accident with his daughter, Kelly. He told Contact Music, “I had a Christmas number one. The only thing is that I was in hospital. When I did that thing with Kelly, I then nearly killed myself in a quad bike accident.”

Ozzy Osbourne went on to add that he hates Christmas because everything just stops. “When I used to drink, it was a good excuse to get drunk for two weeks. Now I just hate it. I have to unravel all these presents. What a waste of paper.”

He then shared due to the accident, he was in a coma. “So I missed Christmas, thank god. If I want to miss Christmas, I’ll get on my quad bike and break my neck again.”

Ozzy Osbourne Opens Up About His Current Health Struggles 

During a recent interview with Express, Ozzy Osbourne spoke about the health issues he’s currently struggling with. “When I was about 69 and a half I thought to myself, ‘One day, I wonder when I will start to feel like an old guy? F— me, when I became 70 I had the f—ing thumb thing. It has been one nightmare after another.”

The rocker recently that back in 2018, he was forced to cancel shows during his No More Tours 2 tour due to an infection in his right thumb. He was eventually hospitalized after he contracted a staph infection. He then underwent numerous surgeries. 

One year later, Ozzy Osbourne suffered a fall in his Los Angeles home while recovering from pneumonia. He re-injured his back, neck, and shoulders. In 2020, he shared with the world his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. He notably found out he had the disease nearly 20 years prior. “I’m not dying from Parkinson’s. I’ve been working with it most of my life.”

Ozzy Osbourne went on to add, “I’ve cheated death so many times. If tomorrow you read, ‘Ozzy Osbourne never woke up this morning,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh my god.’ You’d go, ‘Well, it finally caught up with him.”
