I think it's the adult pressure to have a "perfect" Christmas that makes me go a little nutty - "nuttier than a fruitcake," is the phrase that comes to mind. After all of the planning, prepping, decorating, delivering, shopping, baking, cooking, and cleaning, I'm feeling much more exhausted than festive - and that's before the family comes over! I guess I'll "yust" let Yogi tell you...
"I Yust Go Nuts at Christmas" - Yogi Yorgesson (1949)
Is it wrong to take comfort in the universality of a half-crazed Christmas? Even in 1949, the mad dash for presents, the bills, and the poorly-behaved relations were common elements at every holiday celebration. And so I say, so what if all the nuts in my family qualify our living room as its own "Nutcracker Suite," I "yust" go nuts FOR Christmas! In spite (or maybe because) of the madness, I still "en-yoy" the Christmas holiday and I hope that you do too.
|Now that's NUTS!|
Here is wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year!!!
