It is currently 10:13 pm on Tuesday night, as I type this post for tomorrow. Today (or in my current case, tomorrow) is the un-official start to the holiday season. The city is in grid lock, people are preparing for the first family gathering, gift lists are swarming the inter-web, invitations are popping into our mailboxes, and a giant cloud of Christmas hangs over us as we anticipate the hectic month ahead.
And like always, it is the start of the most wonderful time of the year. There is never a day from Thanksgiving to NYE that you'll find me angry, nor will I be sporting anything but festive attire. The Home Alone soundtrack is prone to be on full-volume throughout my house, along with me singing an arrangement of carols. Despite the inevitable stress that comes hand in hand with the holiday season, admit it. You love the hustle and bustle of it all.
Don't you? You can't fool me.
