Yesterday was Remembrance day, or Veterans day if you’re in the US, which makes today…
the first day of the holiday season.
You can try to avoid it – I know that I won’t be getting into the holiday spirit for several weeks – but the holidays are upon us. The grocery stores are filled with Christmas trees. The stores are playing worn-out Christmas songs. And the advertisements have shifted towards holiday chaos.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
I noticed today that our neighbours have lit their blue LED Christmas lights, which leave me feeling blind and overwhelmed. This time of year always passes in a blur of unfocused lights and food – so it seems fitting to have those gaudy lights glaring at me. They make me want to get an eye exam and decorate my home – two conflicting thoughts to say the least. Honestly, can anyone actually focus on blue LED lighting? I want to do a survey to determine if it’s just my eyes failing me – CAN YOU SEE THE BLUE LIGHTS?!
Besides my new found annoyance for blue lighting, I feel pretty excited for the holiday season. A couple years ago I completed my first blogging challenge by posting every day for the month of December. It was a fantastic experience and I can’t think of a better month to share. I really look forward to ending this year on a high note – December 2015 will be a holiday season to remember!
