My normal mode during winter holiday things at work is to find a reason I can’t go, and this year is no exception! Right now I am enjoying blessed silence in my office because everyone else is gone doing the festive thing.
Same thing every year, everyone looks at me sadly because they’re convinced I’m missing out on some great thing, and I serenely smile back at them while counting the seconds until they take their holiday cheer elsewhere. I get some glee from that, so you COULD say I enjoy the holiday. In my own special way, of course.
I love the winter solstice and winter in general, but the hegenomy of the season really drives me nuts. So I’ll be over here, genuinely enjoying the quiet and reflection that I associate with the season, while every one else loses their damned mind in bells and glitter and sweets. Cheers!
