I’ll be honest and say that I am not a huge fan of the winter holidays. I don’t hate them, but the stress and craziness getting ready for and through them are things I tolerate versus enjoy.
I do like being around family and friends during this time of the year. I don’t get back Home as often as I would like, so going Home for the holidays is a good thing to me. The holiday part is okay, but I mainly enjoy the visit.
But, of course, this year is such that the part I do enjoy is being limited, at best. I guess the only boon is that my wife and I have not had to run around like crazy people to make sure all is set up for making it back Home and ensuring a good result for the holidays – something that is sometimes difficult to achieve.
I think staying home with the wife and daughter and having a quiet Christmas and New Year is going to be kind of nice, but again, I will miss the family and friends.
So, with that in mind, I just want to let my family and friends know that I will miss them this year. I love them. I hope they have as good a holiday as possible. That is what I am going to do.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
