Decembertime Is Here

Yeah, I know, it’s the 2nd already. Been busy, y’all.

The only part of the holidays I dread is when they’re over. What follows New Year’s Day is the Long Monday, the Void, nothing but cold, gray suck and crappy awards shows on the TV for months on out. 

That’s then. This is now: Here’s to colored LEDs, tinsel, and tacky music. Here’s to invading each other’s houses and exchanging casserole dishes of gut-busting culinary mysteries, watching movies together on the big sofa, and talking loudly in the kitchen. Here’s to nativity creches and earnest Advent sermons and singing along to some of the best music in the hymnbooks. Here’s to December, a socio-cultural Friday so intense, you really do lose the rest of the weekend.
This isn’t mine. I don’t know where it came from. Don’t drink and Internet, kids.
