Christmas is Coming

Christmas is coming soon. Is this good news for you or does simply reading those four words send you into the mother of all panic attacks? For me it can go either way. Sometimes it can go either way simultaneously.

Christmas, the holidays, dreading the holidays, help with Christmas

This year I am not looking forward to the holidays…like AT ALL. 

Christmas is coming. Bah, humbug, I say!

I get the reason for the season. I like the reason for the season. I also enjoy certain aspects of Christmas. It’s just one of those years, well, truthfully for me it is a year like no other year I’ve ever experienced.

M friend Mary just put an interesting post on her site about Christmas and I want to share it here: True You Living. This is the beginning of her post: While the rest of the world thinks Christmas is full of Sugar Plum fairies, sparkly party dresses, and Norman Rockwell style, family dinners, some people don’t see it that way. Maybe you know what I mean. Maybe you’ve been hit with some tough stuff. Your memories of the holidays bring up more hurt than happiness. Your seasonal social life is full of overwhelming expectations. And, your family interaction time makes you wish it was any other day of the year. It stings and you don’t want it that way. Click on the link above to read the rest of the story.

Before you go, leave a comment and let me know your feelings on Christmas. Are you looking forward to it this year?
