If you're like me, you find the holidays a bit daunting, dare I say, even sickeningly overwhelming. So, to add a bit of levity to the season (and in a vain attempt to keep myself from blurting out my usual tactless comments in public venues), I am taking up asylum in the blogging world and issuing a challenge to my fellow bloggers.
In the spirit of The Twelve Days of Christmas, we'll call this, "What the Season brought for me..."
Here's the deal. Starting on December 13th and working through the 24th, write something every day for 12 days about your Christmas/holiday/Chanukah/Kwanza/"Non-sectarian gift-givers" experience. The good. The bad. The ugly. The ridiculous. The sappy. The stressful. Whatever. Just blog it! On December 13th...."T'was the first day of (insert appropriate holiday title here) and the season brought for me....." And together, maybe we'll make it through this holiday season somewhat unscathed.
