I was planning on making a bit of a wordy post but many of the sentiments I outlined in my Die Hard post are the same sentiments I was going to post here.
Instead, I’ll keep it simple.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Holidays!
Spend time with the ones you love, and those who would seek your company regardless of the trying circumstances.
Stay away from social media. Coming from a millennial it should mean a lot when I say no good comes from constant social media surveillance, especially at this time of year!
Contact those you have not contacted in a while, spend time watching movies, baking cookies, and (hopefully not) doing some of that last-minute shopping. Remember, gift cards are a valid form of gift giving!
And most importantly, it’s always good to spend time for ourselves and with the ones we care about. Not everything has to be about politics, not everything has to be about COVID. No matter how much information we have thrown our way we don’t always need to engage- this is something I’m still learning to figure out.
Let this time, even for just the weekend, be a time where you have no worries, no cares, and have some semblance of normalcy with those you love and care for.
And for those who do not celebrate Christmas, I hope all of our holidays have been filled with the same sentiments.
I’ll end this post with this song. It’s probably my favorite Christmas song growing up, especially now. It reminds me of simpler times where it really wasn’t about all of the hubbub, stress, and anxiety that may accompany this seasons.
So thank you to all of my readers and subscribers! It’s been a great few months and there will be many more to come!
And for those who are more of the Michael Bublé fan:
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
