I'm not really a scrooge. But I'll admit there are some things that annoy me about the holiday season. Figured this was a good chance to vent, so in no particular order ...
On the TWELVTH (omgosh how do you spell 12th???) LOL!
Try this again ... *ahem* Please sing this to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas:
On the 12th day of Christmas I almost punched a wall. There was:
12 hundred tree needles on the floor,
11 strands of tangled twinkle lights,
10 thousand hungry children around the world,
9 soldiers who won't get to see their families,
8 hours of baking cookies,
7 days of undecorating,
6 red traffic lights in a row,
*5 brand new credit card bills*
4 more expensive toys to buy,
3 assumptions that I'm Catholic,
2 rude shoppers behind me,
and 1 more humid day in Florida when it's supposed to be cold.
I took a Facebook poll to see what the most popular answer was. Pretty much anything that has to do with crowds, greed, or rude people topped the poll.
Now, because I hate to leave things on a negative note, here are just a few things I love about the holidays:
* festive lights everywhere
* excitement in children's eyes
* smell of spruce, cinnimon, turkey roasting, cookies baking
* snowy scenes
* Rockefeller Center
* eggnog while wrapping presents on Christmas eve
* giving to others
* time off work and school to be together
