I love the holidays; I dislike the commercialization of it. Having time off to spend with family and friends. That's what I love. I dislike Black Friday and now Brown Thursday, selling Christmas decorations too early in the season. I love baking holiday cookies with my Mom, spending the Friday after Thanksgiving cutting down our Christmas Tree and decorating it instead of heading to the stores to buy things we don't really need.. I dislike the fact that kids today don't understand what the holidays used to be like.
I hope you have more bursts of happiness this year. Remember what the holidays mean to you versus what 'society' thinks it should be.
