Well, I love Christmas and I love Christmas crap. BRING ON THE CHRISTMAS CRAP is my life motto, which means I have Santas and snowmen and candles and elves and fake reindeer tucked into every corner of my house during the holidays. And I always hate to put the Christmas crap away. Good-bye, Christmas Crap, I always say wistfully as I stuff another Santa into a box.
But this year it feels good to clean, to leave surfaces bare, to enjoy the clean lines of winter.
This won't last, of course. I'll be putting out other crap soon enough. But right now? Peaceful. That's how bareness feels.
I love you, my friends.
