Next Holiday, Please!

Excluding Halloween, this is my favorite time of the year. I like to extend the “holiday” season from Labor day through President’s Day since there is at least one work holiday every month during that period: Labor day (Sept.), Columbus Day (Oct.), Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day-After-Thanksgiving (all Nov.), Christmas Eve, Christmas Day (both Dec.), New Year’s Day, MLK Jr. Day (both January), President’s Day (February). Oh, plus my office closes up shop between Christmas and New Years so there are additional days thrown in for good measure.

Of course the biggest of those holidays for me is Christmas. Yeah, yeah, yeah – I’m atheist…but there’s just something about the music, the lights, and the trees that sucks me in. Hell, I even start thinking about it at the beginning of the “holiday season” on Labor Day. However, I refrain from playing my music until at least Halloween – difficult as it may be.

But now that Halloween is officially behind us, I’ve loaded up my iPod with my Christmas music. Oh yeah, I’m ready. This morning I officially began listening to my happy holiday cheer as I commuted to work.

“It’s the most wonderful time….of the year.”

    Re: why you don’t like Halloween. Duh – also, you hate children! haha You could be the evil Child-Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, speaking of musicals (or wildly visual films).
