Tis the season

I keep vacillating between going “oh crap, how on earth is it almost Christmas” and going “oh yay, it’s almost Christmas.” Which kinda sums up the whole year, if I’m honest. Surprise that it’s already so late, along with happiness that it’s almost over.

Anyway, now that thanksgiving is over, it’s officially the Christmas season. This makes me happy, because Christmas is my very favorite holiday. I love the decorations, the music, the gifts, the tree, the lights, all of it. Even when it’s annoying, it’s still my favorite. 

But at the same time, this year it makes me a little sad. This year is, by necessity, going to be very light. We’re not able to visit family (and I hate disappointing everyone we can’t see). Santa will, of course, still visit the kid but the rest of us will be a little less popular under the tree. We’re going to have to dial way back on everything, and that just bums me out. 

But even still, tonight I’m listening to Christmas music, and thinking about the tree, and decorations and despite the rest of the season being a little less than it normally is, I’m still excited. It’s still my favorite holiday, even if we have to make adjustments to how we do things for this year. Luckily, my favorite parts of the holiday have to do with the feelings and not the stuff. So bring on the Christmas season, limitations or no.
