4. watching holiday specials (F.R.I.E.N.D.S in particular this year)

5. getting ‘best wishes’ from those who send them regardless of the season

Things I don’t like about the holiday season:

  1. The assumption that everyone celebrates Christmas, and if you do, you must celebrate big–I haven’t set up a Christmas tree in the last 5 years.
  2. The “getting” spirit when there are children living in poverty every single day of the year and may have not seen a Christmas tree in the last 5 years.
  3. People not realizing that you celebrate the life of Jesus every day. Every single day.
