The Never Ending Christmas

We do not know if it is because of the day it fell on, or the fact we have over programmed ourselves into too much. This year Christmas fell on a Thursday. This was great for retail as they invented another shopping day for the day after the holiday. This day used to be reserved for people making returns, using gift cards, or just getting that gift you wanted that nobody bought you. We noticed over the last couple of years the trend of having holiday parties after the first of the year as with all there is to do it is one less thing to worry about as Christmas approaches. This year it feels like the never endings Christmas in our family we having or had parties on the December 13, 25, 28 and another we cannot even schedule because the parties cannot get a date on the same day. This one looks like it will be on January 10 or 17. There is something very corporate about exchanging gifts after the holiday. We will have to play it out to see if our feeling is correct. This will happen again next as Christmas will fall on a Friday next year. There is a lot to be said for not needing to get all done in one day, but we feel that maybe a one day approach is better than pretending a party in the middle of January is anything like Christmas.

I never knew the way that you looked at me
Would ever mean so much to me
In my heart I found the feelings I’ve never shown
Now the got the best of me
