Why I'm a Grinch

I don't just hate Christmas because I don't celebrate it. Oh sure, I'm jealous that I miss out of the decorating and crafty opportunities, the cookies, the Rockwelian nostalgia of it all. But mostly, I hate Christmas because of the build-up.

When you have 6 or 8 weeks of excitement and music and parties and food and slow days at work, Christmas is the highlight to the beginning of winter. However, after Chirstmas and New Years, there's no fun holiday to break up the cold oppressiveness of winter. It's just more and more months of snow and cold and gray. Boo.

So, thanks for getting me that S.A.D. lamp for Hannukah, Mom--I'm going to need it!
