Ah the Holidays, the season is upon us yet again. Let me start by saying I love when summer turns to fall, also I love when Fall turns to Winter then Winter turns to Spring and Spring turns to Summer. I really do love all the seasons! OK, back to my point....I love this time of year, when the leaves turn, and there's a chill in the air, all the great fall vegetables are out, there's plump pumpkins everywhere, you make comfort food like stew or chili and sit in front of the fire. First it's Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas! It's a great time of year, everything seems wonderful, people are a little more friendly and charitable especially at Christmas, except one person!
Next is Thanksgiving, he's usually fine because it's mostly stuff that is already out for Fall and a few table cloths, Plus he likes all the food so he keeps his snarky ass comments to himself.
Now Comes Christmas, I definitely decorate for Christmas and although the husband grumbles and sighs about it the whole time. He will put up our Christmas lights BUT he only does it EVERY OTHER year! He thinks that's a good deal...He's no Clark Griswold, I'll tell ya that! I'm living with a real live Ebenezer Scrooge! So, this year I'm just going to hire someone to put up Christmas lights - A. So I don't have to hear his mouth and 3. So I don't have to try to remember if this is the year we get lights on the house or not! The best part is the day after Christmas, he immediately starts ripping everything down and putting the tree away. Traditionally, most families wait until after New Years Day to take down the Christmas decorations. Nope, Not at Ebenezer's house! It's December 26th! OR If, you're like my friend Sassy's Mom, you take down your tree at Easter!
He grumbles about the decorations, who I'm buying presents for, if he has to get up early to go see family, basically anything there is to bitch about, he will! Although, he does love all the presents under the tree and all the holiday food. He may grumble and sigh about everything leading up to the Holiday, but deep down I know he really likes it all and enjoys it. It just wouldn't be the Holiday season if he didn't try and make my life a living Hell!
Love YA Honey! Now, Get My decorations out of the Closet!!
Seriously, get them!
