The Season

Posted by Kelly on December 23, 2009 in My Life |

It’s brutal.  The crowds in the malls (especially in the parking lots), the rough attitude of a lot of people (I heard three threats of death today alone), the cost of getting gifts (why not just give cash?) and the propensity for overeating (going to squeeze in another workout just in case) makes for wondering: what is so great about the holiday season?

But I love it.  I do.  If you have kids, it’s great – they are so excited, that it drives you to the mall.  The family getting together for a tradition – we do my mom’s place on Xmas eve, kids open all gifts from relatives (obviously the Santa stuff has to wait until morning) and eat absurd foods.  The creme puffs she makes really should be illegal.  They are killing people.

I think it’s just a great break from the crush of daily life that EVERYONE takes.  I’ve got killer construction software, work for an unreal gaming company, and a super-fun celebrity contest on the work side, and golf and aviation on the rare occasion that I have the time.  This is a great break, and a chance to spend time with my girls.

I love Christmas.  And New Years.  And of course, Kellsmas – which is January 7.  🙂
