As I scroll through my reader these days, I see so many holiday related posts. This is because, for “normal” people, it’s a big part of life, this holiday season. I’ve run blogs before… kept one going for over 8 years, to be exact, and as always, regardless of my personal feelings on the subject, I start feeling that pressure to conform. As though, if I don’t wish everyone a ‘merry,’ ‘happy,’ ‘good’ something, I’m that guy with the green fur and permanent frown.
I won’t conform, though. And I won’t go into my history with Christmas, either. Nor will you hear any ‘bahs’ or ‘humbugs’ coming from this direction. My feelings are my feelings, they are rooted in experiences I’d as soon forget, and I do actually want every person to celebrate and enjoy the season in whatever way they choose.
My wishes for peace and joy go out to each of you; not just at Christmastime; it is something I wish for you every day of the year.
