'Tis the Season

'Tis the Season.

Oh, I am not talking about spending too much or eating too much or fretting too much, about the spending and eating, mostly.

Oh, I am not talking about cranky drivers in the shopping mall parking lots or bell-ringing Santas with obviously fake spectacles or poinsettias dropping leaves faster than the falling of the stock market.

Oh, I am not talking about joyful holiday gatherings and hanging stockings with care or delivering goodie plates, which are probably regifted elsewhere, let's face it.

I am talking about the epitome of the holiday. The end-all, be-all of the holiday season.


I have lost the Christmas gifts that I put away for safekeeping.

I am searching high. I am searching low. I am searching above. I am searching below. I am searching inside. I am searching outside. I am wondering where I could have possibly hidden the perfect must-have gifts that I purchased a few mere weeks ago and hid away.

Forever, yes.

It's officially Christmas!

Heck, yes!

hahaha. This is why I wrap everything the day I buy it. (P.S. unless these gifts are for dad...why are you hiding them in the first place? It's not like the person they are for is going to find it in your house...)

Oh the wonders. Didn't you, in the past find Christmas presents later in the year that you had hidden?

Ah, Christmas in some other month.
