what? me? (he must be crazy)
i guess my intolerance to christmas lights being put up pre-thanksgiving and over-the-top adorning with decorations has really gotten to him over the years. i really thought he was growing to love my snide, yet witty little remarks, but apparently not.
so as my christmas gift to everyone this year, there will be a conscious effort made to refrain from making gagging sounds at all of those blown up snow globes and santas on sleighs or the life-size cardboard carolers taking root in front lawns everywhere. i'll stop rolling my eyes at all of the over-indulgence of material gifts we give our children. i'll go to see the temple lights willingly out of mere tradition and try my hardest to be involved in tacky enrichment day crafting. (which our ward actually isn't having. holler.) i'll stop making fun of the way you do christmas.
so here's to a whole month filled with family, food, and personal reflections on Christ or your eight days of lights. merry christmas and happy hanukkah. i hope it's a good one for everyone.
