Best Week of the Season?

Is it Thanksgiving?  The actual week of Christmas?  How about the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve?  Post-holiday?

I think it's this week, the post-Thanksgiving week.  Everyone is still zoning on last week's turkey and maybe geeked about some Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals, the weather isn't too bad yet, people are easing into the holiday season and still somewhat cheery to each other.

It's the holiday week..... when hope is still our friend.  We hope and hope and hope - and we believe in our hope that this year will be different or better!  Hope that we can get everything done on the list this year, and that our siblings won't revert to childhood habits this year, and that our friend's husband lives through the year, and that we can still find the perfect gift for mom this year, and that our teenage daughters will still want to decorate the tree and go out to lunch for that mom/daughter tradition, and and and.....hope hope hope believe believe believe.

Because at this point, 24 days away, it still all seems possible.  And the magic of the season isn't tarnished juuust yet....

I hope I can get all the Christmas decorations up and the house cleaned before I have a stupid party on the 13th. Why do I volunteer my house for parties? I have two cats. And two litter boxes. And two smelly men.

Fa la la la laaa!!
