That’s YOUR Holiday Spirit

My husband puts up with my holiday silliness because he knows it makes me happy. He doesn’t like a big fuss. He likes candles in the windows and that’s about it.

Honestly, I think he doesn’t even care about the tree much, or at all.

However, this weekend he started playing his Christmas music… a few rap classics, and some old singers and standards. My husband likes sad Christmas songs.

He was singing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” just before we sat down to dinner.

Holidays are difficult in a variety of ways for everyone. They can also be wonderful.

My husband’s holiday spirit is Sad Christmas, and that’s okay. My holiday spirit is Decorate the Fuck out of Everything Martha Stewart Insanity, and that’s okay. My son’s holiday spirit is I Love Christmas Because It’s Magical, and that’s okay.

Some people don’t do holidays at all, and that’s okay. It’s all okay.

What’s your holiday spirit?
