She said, "What is it with you, why don't you like Christmas."
It isn't so much that I dislike Christmas, I dislike the insanity. I fail to see why we need to start selling Christmas crap at Halloween. Why must we be tortured with Christmas music starting November 1? Why must we only remember poor people at Christmas time? Why must we have loads of special parties and dinners, now at Christmas time. Why must we only show our appreciation for our hair stylist, bus driver and bank teller only on Christmas? Why can't we be kind to people all year round?
I could on, but I won't.
So what I thought I would do, is to take apart the song, the 12 Days of Christmas, and try to talk about a timely related subject, hopefully pointing out opportunities to be kind year round, to live the "Christmas spirit" 24/7. I have no idea if this will be fun and jolly or dark and dreary. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
So be on the look out. No promises, but here goes nothing.
