My Christmas tree is up. I love having the lights on at night, with Christmas music playing ... November and December are my favorite months. January is New Years and the Super Bowl. I don't care about the Super Bowl but there are parties so that makes it fun. February is Valentines, March is my birthday, April is our anniversary, and May, well there's nothing in May. Nothing in June either. July is the Orclette's birthday, August is boring, September is boring, and then there's October. That's when the anticipation begins, the stores start receiving their holiday displays and stock. Halloween is there but we've never done that one and I don't have any desire to do so. Sooo ...
What music/movies do you crave during the holiday season? What foods? What traditions must you do to make it feel special? And, if you are not the Christmas type, how do you survive the season? I ask because I'd love to expand my holiday collection of music/movies, and I love hearing how other people enjoy this most special time of year. And, if you believe in the Grinch, let me know and I won't bother you with all the Christmas minutiae that I'll be full up with :D
You know, this is a very bad time of year to be in the desert. Very bad indeed ..... no White Christmas. /sniff. No fireplace ...... no real need for steaming mugs of hot cocoa and cider ...... but you know what? I'm 24. 25? No, 24. 2008-1984. 24. And that means I can buy that special bottle of wine for Damm and I to enjoy. Ha! I'm an adult! Hehe. Oh that makes me feel better. (And yes, I really do have to take a moment and figure out my age. I never think about it, see, and it's also genetic. My mum doesn't remember how old she is and never remembers when I was born-although I think that's because she believes that you're only as old as you think you are and since she can't remember, she doesn't age. Heck, she's competing in 1/2 Ironmans and she's somewhere past 50 ....bah humbug I forgot to call her to see how she did. /bad daughter.)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And Thanksgiving in there somewhere!
