If you’re not doing two (or atleast one) of these seasonably-acceptable check points, then something has gone wrong.
(And If you’re doing all four, well done.)
I myself am already nearing my – approximated – twentieth mince pie.
Whether you are one of those who hate, love or couldn’t care either way – Christmas is here. And instead of moaning that it costs a lot, it’s cold and it’s all over before you know it…don’t forget: Christmas is a great cover-up for most impulsive and indulgent things you would normally feel bad about.
For example: Person A, “I really want this glittery expensive dress but I shouldn’t really buy it.” Convincing Person B, “Well it is Christmas.” A new, convinced Person A, “Yes, yes it is.”
And that can be rolled out for most circumstances. Try it.
It worked for me when I saw this – bejewelled Christmas trees in a big glittery jar. So stupid, so simple, so pointless. But it’s Christmas. Okay.
It is a state of mind I believe should continue long after the festive period…
