What are you doing to beat back “Winter Festival”? Do you say a hearty and unabashed “Merry Christmas?”
What are you doing to stoke the Christmas Spirit? Will you be traipsing around the neighborhood singing Christmas carols? What Christmas albums are you listening to in-home or out-of-home perhaps on your mobile device? What Martha Stewart-like projects are you and the family up to? Stringing cranberries and popcorn to decorate the tree? Are you perhaps trying to outdo Chevy Chase with Christmas lighting of your home? What treats, candies, cookies, or drinks do you enjoy making?
How are you beating back the cold, empty, alienated strains of commercialized, materialized, pre-packaged “Winter Festival” in order to bring warmth and meaning to this season? Are you making any effort at all?
I know we have a creative bunch here. Share your stories, adventures, artistry, techniques, and thoughts on enjoying December and this entire Christmas season. Spread the good cheer. No negative vibes (unless you have a good story, even if poignant). No “I can’t do that—who do you think I am, Martha Stewart?” Everyone can do something.
Brad is editor and chief disorganizer of StubbornThings.
