~☼~ How come I always think "Oh, it'll only take me a few minutes to get these presents wrapped" then 2 hours later after I finally finish, I spend another hour cleaning up the mess I made?
~☼~ How come there is always that one person I can't think of a cool present for - and it's not the same person every year?
~☼~ How come I'm always finishing some homemade gift (usually cross stitch) on Christmas Eve no matter how early I started making it?
~☼~ How come I always get a Christmas card from the one person I didn't send one to this year because I haven't been in touch with them for years?
~☼~ How come the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas seems like it is only 4 days long?
~☼~ How come I feel such a compulsion to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer every year as I have since I was 7 years old?
~☼~ How come hearing Linus recite the Christmas story still gives me goosebumps?
~☼~ How come egg nog only tastes good when I drink it from the holly berry glasses I got at Arby's almost 30 years ago?
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season in whatever way you choose to celebrate it and may the god of your choice bless you and yours in the new year.
Send me your "how come"s and I'll post the best of them in another blog entry.
