I’m not counting New Year’s Eve/Day. That one is no biggie. I mean the Halloween through Thanksgiving through Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah craziness that overwhelms the entire fall through early winter. I’m so relieved. It’s lovely to make and shop and give and get. And especially warm and fuzzy to visit with all the relatives. But I’m so happy it’s over. Phew!

I mean, what’s all the fuss about anyway? Wouldn’t it be more fun to just chill and relax and randomly gift to people whenever you felt like it? I think so. But I haven’t figured out how to avoid the intensity of the holiday season yet and I probably won’t have a solution any time soon.

So, I’m moving on…
