Packing up Christmas...

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Have been stalling for a few days on taking down the Christmas tree, and all the decorations... Even now, I'm writing this blog rather than taking the ornaments off the tree.

This holiday season never really felt like it was supposed to. Between my sister's heart attack right before Thanksgiving, to a friend's stroke right before Christmas... add in a ton of car trouble, illnesses left and right, and now a funeral to attend tomorrow, and I just could never pull off "festive."

~sighs~ but the tree pickup is tomorrow, so this has to be done... whether I like it or not...

    I understand. Being festive isn't something that can be pulled off when family members and friends are seriously ill and when there is a death. One thing I don't like about the holidays is the holiday hype, because it gives an expectation that it is all light and joy. Sometimes it isn't which compounds the stress because it isn't the holiday it has been in the past or the holiday your friends are having. There is pressure there to 'put on a good face' and be merry, when that is the last thing on earth you can pull off with any emotional honesty.
