NO Ho Ho Ho!
This week I won a Holiday Themed Chalkboard which read “Ho Ho Ho”. Since I do not decorate for Christmas, I was planning to bring it home and immediately place it into the “To Be Donated” box. I was headed out to the garage with it, but decided instead to modify it to express MY sentiments. It now reads “Bah Humbug!”
I see Christmas as a three-month frenzy of businesses trying to make money. In addition, many people use Christmas as an excuse to overeat, overdrink, and overspend. People rush around buying, baking, cleaning, decorating, etc. and get so stressed over it all!
I choose instead to relax and extend Thanksgiving through the month of December. No gifting, cooking, decorating, shopping or wearing of holiday sweaters! “Bah Humbug”!
