Some things about the holidays I love.
The light displays warm the heart on a cold winter night. The music promoting peace is particularly welcomed this year.
Some things about the holidays i don’t care for at all.
The crowds. The attitudes. The theft. The unrealistic expectations.
I’ve never really cared for the holiday celebrations. I always felt I was being judged by how I looked, how I dressed, or what gifts I gave. Took me a long time to realize that most people are wondering the same thing, and even if I was being judged it really didn’t matter because what others think about me is none of my concern.
This year my family has chosen to do away with the gift thing and play Dirty Santa. Much less stressful for sure.
Santa will be visiting the kitties. I know they don’t really care if he visits or not, but it matters to me, so visit he will.
I bought myself a gift also: a shelf unit to store my excess kitchen items. No more storage in plastic totes and taking up precious counter space.
I hope you enjoy your Christmas, whatever it brings.
