Much ado about…..


Grinch, Scrooge or Santa’s little helper?

Sing along with me now:

Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la, la la la la.

Decking the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la, la la la la.

Is this your favourite time of year? Do you just love shopping for everyone on your list? Rushing around to find the perfect gift? Have you started shopping yet or are you one of those who do this early in the year, thus leaving time for baking all kinds of delicious yummies that no on else has time for?

Or are you a Scrooge type? Do you get annoyed with all the hoopla that starts well before Halloween has even passed? Are you miserable like the Grinch , and rain that misery on those around you who love this time of year?

I, myself fall somewhere in between. I have come to realize that although this is not my favourite time of year, I can and often do “get into it” when it is absolutely necessary for me to do so.

I would prefer to not continually hear the Christmas tunes in every store I shop, from November 1st till the New Year. I would also prefer if everyone stayed at home and shopped on the Internet, so my experience in the malls… well to put it bluntly… is less crowded and less stressful.

This year I have taken another route, in order to avoid all the hype that Christmas brings and keep my sanity as well.

I’m leaving the country for warmer climes where I will know no one and feel no obligation to buy anyone a gift. I know what your saying “Well how does that let you off the hook?” Trust me it does! After all, if I leave well before Christmas and come back in the New Year, it also let’s everyone else off the hook as well.

This is my gift to me and I deserve it. I have been wanting to do this for many years, and now I am “just going to do it!” My friends know me well and most of them have no issues with this, or have chosen not to express it to me if it bothers them. But I know they love me and want me to be happy.

If you’d like to contribute the my anti-Christmas-going-away fund, leave a comment and let me know where I can reach you. I do take PayPal.

22 days and counting down…

Till Next Time….
