Ahh, the holidays. Who doesn’t love the crisp winter air, the crackling fire, the sounds of sleigh bells coming from your kids’ bedroom because somebody thought it would be a good idea to get them an entire instrument set so they could perform their rendition of Jingle Bells for the entire month of December whenever they feel the whim?
Oh, and the shopping. Don’t forget about the shopping.
Every year I stress out about what to get my family, my friends, my kids, my kids’ teachers, their bus drivers, the mail person, the neighborhood kid who charges me about 500% too much to do a crappy job of shoveling my driveway. You know, the usual suspects.
As if having to battle people in public over the last hot new toy that my children absolutely must have isn’t bad enough, there’s also the period when those bills start rolling in and I wonder if we shouldn’t just denounce the holidays altogether, throw out all our crap, buy one of those tiny houses, and start living a truly minimalistic lifestyle.
And don’t even get me started on the stress involved in making the moments magical.
