Well, Christmas day may be over officially – but the joy lives on! For one: because my immediate family has Christmas with our extended family today so the x-mas cookies and holiday spread will be making a comeback. But also because my sister gave me The Book of (Holiday) Awesome. So even when Christmas may seem like it’s a million days away, I can flip to a page and smile over the thought of Real Bearded Santas. Cause let’s face it, who doesn’t love it when they walk through a mall and see a jolly old man who actually looks like the real deal? Some other highlights:
Just barely wrapping a gift with that tiny scrap of leftover paper. (A joy that can come at any time of the year even.)
Staying up so late that everything becomes funny. (Exhibit A: My sisters and I spent until midnight last night faux-bickering over who would get each item of my still-very-with-it mother’s jewelry box. Sounds morbid but I guarantee three girls decked out in rings that don’t fit and jewels the size of a big toe is purely comical.)
Eating anything with oil in it. (Although I would alter this to Eating Everything. Period. Because when else can you realistically justify to yourself that, yes, you do need that ninth Christmas cookie?)
So, Christmas lives on! And I highly suggest you get yourself a copy of The Book of (Holiday) Awesome because it is just too excellent to pass up.
