I love the holidays so much. I love the industriousness of it all, starting with Halloween and the home sewn costumes, building through the Thanksgiving domestic rush, and the grand crescendo of Christmas gift crafting, wrapping, and sending.
And then after the flurry comes the slide into New Years, accompanied by excessive alcohol, hangovers, and sluglike behavior. Must. Fight. Off. Post. Holiday. Blues.
(And get back to being industrious, as I have yet to mail out ANY long distance Christmas presents!)
