Sorry, little off-topic swerve, there.
Anyway, I don't actually hate the time, just the expectations. I'm more likely to have fun if I am not forced into it. Hell, I've spent entire work days in the garage in a Santa hat while working on cars, just for the goofiness of it. I amused the entire art department of Graceland by singing "Blue Christmas" at the top of my lungs. Jessica and I have a 4-foot fake purple tree.
So, in the end, here's me wishing all of you the best of the season. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Spiritually Fulfilling Equinox, Rockin' Festivus, Cool Yule, Sweet Saturnalia, and Happy Holidays to you all.
Now, get that spirit in your heads...and keep it all through the year. No reason to only be excellent to each other for a few days, when we can do it all the time.
