Does anyone else hate holidays too?
Well, Maledicte, I'm a confirmed Holiday Hater - and I have been for many years. It may be for different reasons than yours, but I can go on for hours about those reasons. In my case, family has been (or is) often a big part of the problem. Sigh.
The season doesn't drag me completely down so much as you, since I've come to terms with my life and manage to adapt and avoid as much of the holiday hoopla as possible. And the good news is that this year has brought a bit of stress relief from the last 10 years or so. My absurd sense of humor has returned and has been serving me well.
I think I can even spare some especially good thoughts and wishes to send to you and everyone else here. Hang in there with us.
