Some people just love the Christmas Season. Some so much, that they even make every day like Christmas.
To me, it is just something that returns every year. Followed by all the New Year’s Eve craze … Not to sound like a Grinch here, but what if we just skipped December?
(Not just once?)
This time of year is really not my favorite and I might suffer from a big childhood trauma here. You see, in the former GDR, your parents thought they’d do you a huge favor if they send Santa to you. Unfortunately, Weihnachtsmann also came with a rather special mask.
(If I’ll manage to find that slide over the Christmas Holidays, I swear I’ll actually put a photo of myself on the internet. It’s some rather scared looking kid and a really creepy Santa mask.)
In Australia, the Christmas season felt completely different (and almost fun). It was very much on the kitschy side of things and with the beginning of summer came complete with lots of barbeques, I mean barbies, and pool parties.
It is the time of the year you go to the Christmas Markets
decorate your tree
and accumulate more things and stuff you really didn’t need
listen to Last Christmas until you want to hang yourself with that funny Christmas sweater
and survive that work Christmas party. [Shivers]
I’ll try to be prepared
getting out that New Kids on the Block Christmas Album
and making sure to watch Paul and the gnomes. You never gnome what these guys are brewing.
Now, I got everything ready by November. This, Ladies & Gentleman, is how you save your sanity. Rejoice and merry Deccember!
How do you feel about the Holiday Season?
