I'm going to try to be more neutral about the onslaught of ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS this year.

It's been bothering me for a few years now, probably longer than "a few" if I'm honest, and the last chunk of years it's really really gotten to me.  I've probably talked about why, but it's been part of what makes this time of year generally not my favourite.

So I thought that this year I'd try to, if not ignore it, at least not engage with it.  Not in that negative "I wish it were different" way anyway.

There are things about what goes on at this time of year that I will look to enjoy and I hope that my attempts at "not hating" it all will give me a little more peace than the last few years.

I had a momentary "grrr" back in September when Costco put out the Christmas stuff, and then another right after Halloween when Wal-mart put out the fancy Christmas Candy (why does no one hand out the expensive 'Turtles' or 'After Eight' candy for Halloween...).

But now I've come to terms and I'm counting down the days til the Winter Solstice, and when the days start getting longer.

I think we're on the same page ;)

(And good point about the Halloween-Xmas candy! ha!)
