About this time of year I suffer a major holiday hangover. From mid October all the way through the end of the year we have some kind of holiday-ish activity planned. It's always super fun. There is something to look forward to around every bend. Therefore, when the first of the year rolls around I'm wiped out, and a little sad.
I'm not sad because I had a bad Christmas, Birthday or New years or anything like that. Quite the opposite. I LOVE the holidays. When the first of November rolls around I'm chomping at the bit to put the Christmas decorations out. (However, I've been trained from a young age the Christmas decor doesn't go up a day before Thanksgiving.) I revel in the Christmas season. I love the weather, the joy, the reason we celebrate, I love the music, the decorations, how sweet people are during this time of year etc.
When it's time to box up the Christmas decorations I get a little sad. It's like I'm saying good bye to a good friend. A friend I won't be able to see again for 11 months. And now you understand what a holiday hangover is ;).
Have a great New Year!
