So, Christmas is here in a few days, not to mention the start of Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
If you dread this time of year, it’s time to face the music. It might get a little awkward. But be strong, you can make it. If you need to, sneak away for a lil’ smoke break outside, then come back and dazzle folks with trippy stories about Santa Claus.
If you’re not up for that, lock yourself in a room for five minutes and enjoy some adults-only alone time. Whatever it takes to chill out for a bit.
But, most of all, just look on the bright side. Even if you hate the holidays you’re bound to either get at least one decent gift, or at the very least, some socks, which as you get older, you realize are actually a practical gift. Because who wants to waste time or money buying their own socks?
Some might say that being happy with getting socks for Christmas is a sure sign you’re getting old. But getting old also means you’re a veteran at surviving the holidays, so take that experience and saunter through the Yuletide chaos. If worse comes to worse, watch a few movies. That always makes things better.
