Re: The Holidays This May Concern,
I hate the stress and planning – whether it’s the packing and travel or the hosting. I do however love the actual holi-DAY and all the fun we have on that date.
And by the way – is it too much to ask that we not hear Christmas music or see Christmas decorations until the day after Thanksgiving? Really? And why do we celebrate Thanksgiving so close to Christmas? I love that Canada’s is earlier when the leaves are prettier and the two holidays have a little more time between them.
Maybe nobody agrees with me. Maybe I’m just easily stressed by the holiday season? It just feels like Halloween is a big kickoff to a stresstrip that doesn’t conclude until New Years’ Eve! No wonder people party party par-TAY!
Man-oh-man…the fun of family and friends, cocktails and cooking, decorations and festivities, travel and loved house guests. But man-oh-man…the go-go-go of it all!
I’m bloody well exhausted and still have to do my Christmas shopping for a rapidly expanding family, travel internationally and be very, very merry and cheery houseguest for almost two weeks.
