Tis the Season: to say the heck with it by da-AL

Holidays can be nice — and terrible! Family can bring us to our knees — both to swoon and to cringe. Romance can make our hearts flutter or seize.

From Halloween to New Year’s, at least here in the U.S., 24/7 we’re inundated with messages of how this is the time for families and lovers. We’re instructed to either kiss, or to kiss and make up.

Sometimes they’re not possible. At times, they aren’t in our best interest.

Traditional or sacred, I invite you to 161215gingercujoin me in acknowledging that some holiday seasons are best ignored. It’s ok to give them a rest. Some years, it’s fine if we just get through them!

We’re allowed to do whatever it takes to mark time, to survive, to thrive through and into gentle holiday-clear January.

  1. So true… certain celebrations have become so traditional that they are almost “Clichés”… First and foremost, we need to remember what Christmas means, as it seems the festivity is all about gifts and consumerism, most times.. Sigh. Wishing you the best! 😀
