Dear Christmas


Today I found myself looking around and realized there is no tree up, no lights hung from the eaves, and no presents wrapped for the morning frenzy. I didn’t stand in line for the latest gadgets or spend a hundred dollars on wrapping paper and tape. This year we didn’t seek to embellish in the ordinary traditions. I sincerely hope you are not offended as we are striving to find a real meaning to your tradition beyond the  commercialization Christmas.
I want you to know that in the past I have done all these things, even yelling at the string of lights which twist and tangle. I have followed normal protocols in shopping, cards, and baking. And every year I am even more exhausted by time the day comes.
We are taking a stand for christmas this year and creating a different ideal. Less stuff to fill closets and more laughter, love, and handmade food. We hope you understand, Christmas, and our relationship will dive deeper into the spirit of love.

Sincerely,
Me
