I’m in heaven right now. It’s dark, quiet and I’m surrounded by tiny twinkling lights. The lights from the Christmas tree, the lights on the house, the lights on Christmas Snoopy. It smells like pine and I just drank some hot cider.
Nothing could be better right now than this. Every year I wonder why I can’t have fresh pine and glowing lights 365 days a year.
But would 365 days of Christmas really be great? It’s hard to imagine, but the upsides are clear: The lights, the sense of giving and gratitude, Trader Joe’s peppermint Joe Joe’s…
How about the downsides? The cost, the pine needles sticking in your socks, Fox News commentators railing on about “The War on Christmas” and this new Jesus that was supposedly white, thankyouverymuch, Ms. Kelly.
How about you?
What’s your favorite holiday, and would you still like it if it lasted an entire year?
Valentine’s Day would either be yummy candy and hot sex every day, or yummy candy and the noticeable lack of a person to have hot sex with. Halloween: pranks and more candy. But also the pressure to have an original costume every single day?
Fourth of July, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Columbus Day (God forbid), New Year’s Eve… Which would you chose for a year-long holiday?
