It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
This time of the year always seems a little brighter, doesn’t it? People are generally more upbeat with one another, offering kind salutations and a smile to encountered strangers. Nature seems more beautiful, blanketed in the pristine snow of winter, making everything look clean and pure. It’s the time of the year where you can let loose and gorge yourself on anything and everything because “you’re just going to cover it all up with a jacket anyway!” This season offers us all the opportunity to let those around us know we care about them by bestowing upon them the most incredible, perfect, this-was-made-just-for-you gift.
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
Or, if you’re like me, it’s getting dark way too early because of stupid daylight savings time; everyone seems incredibly irritable, rushed and annoyed with one another and would more eagerly kick a puppy than say “hello;” there is no nature covered in clean, white snow because you live in the wasteland that is Las Vegas — what inspires the holiday spirit more than sin?; it’s impossible to hide that excess belly fat because, in addition to being a wasteland, it’s still seventy degrees outside, and the opportunity to let your friends and family know you love them is really just a crushing weight on your shoulders to make sure you buy them the most incredible gift — forcing you to brave the catastrophe of hordes of people in the same exact situation and spirit as you at the local shopping hub.
Who’s ready for the holidays?! (Okay, yeah – I can be kind of a Scrooge sometimes.)
