Call me Scrooge. Call me The Grinch. Call me grumpy. Call me whatever.
I hate holiday decor. Like, seriously.
If it were up to me, there would be very little done in the way of decorating for the holidays. It would be simple and wouldn’t take hours to set up, or tear down. It would be quick and easy and not require the rearranging of the entire house.
It would also not involve Christmas lights hung on the house. Talk about a waste of energy (literally and figuratively)!
No one enjoys putting the damn things up. No one relishes the idea of climbing a ladder over and over again. No one loves the idea of climbing around on the roof of the house with impending disaster just one slip away. No one likes untangling lights, running extention cords, replacing light bulbs, or being in the cold for long periods of time while putting them up and taking them down.
What a stupid tradition. Really. Who came up with this idea? Never mind that. I don’t really care.
I have the day off today. Guess what I have been tasked with? If you need me I’ll be outside, climbing ladders, dangling over the edge of the eaves, and cursing my existence for the next several hours.
Bah-humbug, I say!
