So let's talk some Christmas. Though I am an Atheist and don't go along with the whole "birth of Baby Jesus" hullabaloo, I do still celebrate the holiday. It's got nothing to do with religion and everything to do with tradition. I always loved it growing up, and even with all the stress and madness, I still love it now. Yes, it's over-commercialized, and that's the only part I really don't like.
So for the sake of nostalgia, here are some photos from Christmas past:
Though as much as I look forward to Christmas, I do not look forward to all the driving that I'll be doing this year. Let's do the math:
Friday: going to aunt/uncle's house - 59.14 miles + 59.14 miles back
Sunday: going to grandma #1's house - 59.14 miles + 22.83 miles to get Kitten from her dad's + 30.34 mi to my parents' house + 20 miles to grandma #2's house + 21 miles home
TOTAL: 271.59 miles.
Yes, that sucks.
Oh well. Like my mom said, "You're the one that moved far away."
So whatever you celebrate - Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Winter Solstice, Family Appreciation Day - or if you plan on just getting drunk on your couch, have a good time.
I'll be driving.
