Holiday Haiku*

I liked Christmas best
when Santa did all the work.
Is it over yet?

I hate feeling like I'm too busy to really enjoy the season. I keep putting notes in the suggestion box saying that Christmas should really be scheduled for February when I have time for it, but so far no response.
The busyness is extra aggravating when I have blog fodder but no time to write the post. Oh well, 'tis the season and that. Hopefully holiday tales after the 25th aren't as repellent as the thought of eating more turkey after Thanksgiving, because that's when I'll probably manage to write about them.
I have to work through the 23rd, but after 5:00 on Saturday I plan on many hours of mangling Christmas songs and watching Rankin/Bass holiday specials as I wrap presents and wallow in the spirit of the season.
Happy Holidays everyone!

edited to add:

1) The above picture shows the fabulous Snow Miser and his minions from the 1974 Rankin/Bass Christmas special. YouTube has a clip of his song and dance number here.

2) Believe it or not, my tree STILL isn't fully decorated. It has lights and strung balls, and I have to say it does look kind of awesome, but without the sentimental ornaments it doesn't seem complete. We'll see about a photograph, but I'm not promising anything. Mary did such a great job with her tree that I'm suffering from performance anxiety.

Aha! See I knew it paid to be a bit of a Grinch. I have no stress. In fact, I'm off for a facial in a few minutes. Oh, my job is calling today Christmas Eve and giving us the day off. Aww...the power to manipulate the calendar!
