You want to talk about it? You know, that elephant in the room...the fact that it doesn't feel anything like Christmas to me. I keep waiting for "the Christmas spirit" to infiltrate my body as easily as seasonal allergies, but I keep coming up empty. I don't have a tree or lights. I haven't turned on any Christmas music. I skip over all of the Christmas movies. I haven't even wanted to shop. And, if you haven't noticed, I completely tanked on keeping up with those Christmas gift guides I promised all of you. Eventually, I'll be able to come clean about why I've been so unplugged. For now, suffice to say I am experiencing a paradigm shift of sorts. I look forward to spending time with family this week, and I am eager for the renewed focus that 2014 promises.
You know me. I just like to be honest with you. I'm not sure there is an actual recipe for Christmas spirit, but if there were, I imagine it would look something like this:
- A dash of this holiday isn't about you, Jordan.
- A house of happy, healthy family members.
- A table of food for which I did not pay and am glad to eat.
- And maybe vodka.
Kidding, kind of.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas - however you so choose to define it.
