The first thing I want to get out there is YES, I say, “Happy Holidays!” in public. I do not want to risk offending anyone PLUS between now and New Years there are probably 15 recognized holidays throughout the western world. By the way, it is totally OK to wish me Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or what ever.
The biggest thing I am looking forward to is the end of the election. Truthfully, I hardly care anymore. Just get it over. This has gone on for too long and cost too much. (but that’s another story).
Growing up in upstate New York I had a pretty big family. From Halloween to New Years there were always people stopping by with wine, cheese, fruit baskets, or baked goods. When I was home from college not only were relatives stopping by but also friends from high school. I also, when out, would stop by friends and relatives house bringing small gifts.
The holidays are meant to spend with friends and family. It still brings a smile to my face remembering a full house on any given night.
As an adult with a family of my own and we don’t have a lot of family near by. We make up for this with having some great friends. I can’t wait for the kids to get home college. I can’t wait for friends to stop by. I am looking forward to friends of my kids stopping by.
If you are driving by and the lights are on please stop for a glass of wine and some cookies.
Just wanted to put that out there.
Bonus if you know what this is! A bottle of wine if you bring me some
