Duke Bushido Posted January 21 Report Share Posted January 21 Awww.... don't worry- it isn't quite depression. it is just a pang of wistful nostalgia. Like everyone else, I have a few dolks to whom I must mail a Christmas gift or two. Now anyone who has heard mention of my seasonal Santa look and who might suspect that I am quite extroverted should understand that I absolutely _love_ Christmas (not the commercialized bits with thr endless adds and the headless nervous hope that maybe this will be the year that we win the war on Christmas (really: just win. Either side; I dont care who wins. I just want the stupid cyclic complaints to stop)... I enjoy it so much that when it is time to pack evertthing back,up, I always insit on leaving one thing out- one decoration- for the whole year. For several years it is been a particular candle or ornament or ribbon-- wife has assured me that she is fine with this, but that I will never agwin talk her into leaving the whole tree up. Not sure why- it was so much faster the next year! Just slide it from th3 dining room (she acceoted this originally,because our dining room has no front-facing windows, so the neighbors would never know) and right into the living room windows- done! Probably,because neither ofbus had ever had an artificial tree,before, and had no idea what a massive pain they are to dust whwn ledt out for a year. And that whilenit was obvious we xouldnt dust it with a leaf blower, it turns out that a shop vac will also down whole ornaments, too..... Anyway, I just received word that the final Christmas present I sent out was opened an hour or two ago..... Christmas is over again..... So I have to think about next year now...
