very merry

I've always wanted a "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree.

Apparently I only post on holidays.

I do intend to stop that trend, but so far those are the only slow, empty days I’ve been affording myself. Which shouldn’t be true.

Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays. I’m not a Christmas person – I don’t feel particularly jolly during December, Christmas songs on the radio have been driving me crazy for weeks now, and seeing shops dressed up with lights and snowflakes just makes me feel manipulated by materialism.

But Christmas itself: lovely. In my family, it’s incredibly laid-back. My siblings and I make a fort in the living room and watch random snippets of TBS’s 48 hour “A Christmas Story” marathon, which usually add up to viewing the entire film. The morning consists of a leisurely breakfast with grandparents and gift-opening, followed by a day of food, naps, and playing with new toys.

As a general rule, I’d say that a holiday becomes my favorite when I wake up and go to bed in the same pair of sweats.
