So, I thought that I would begin by sharing the two issues that linger, as a disclaimer of sorts.
The first issue is one that I finally owned up to a few years ago. Despite years of fa-la-la-ing and ho-ho-ho-ing, I actually dislike Christmas. To be more accurate, I dislike the over commercialized, shop-until-drop, high-octane holiday that Christmas has become, as it usually leaves me stressed out and frazzled, despite taking steps to simplify it.
