Word of the Day Challenge: Gloom
I really did try to make the best of the Christmas holidays.
I decorated, I cooked, I sent out cards and listened to hours of Christmas music. I refused to let myself get sucked into the gloom that hung over the festivities like a noxious cloud.
I even tried to write Christmas stories- to be fair I’ve never been able to pull that off but at least I tried, again.
My efforts weren’t exactly a roaring success. The only upside is I didn’t eat a lot and I didn’t step foot into a Mall once. So, hoozah for me.
Now Christmas is over and on one hand I’m relived because I wore myself out trying to keep a stiff upper lip and I’m exhausted. On the other hand I’m sad because there is no going back and changing what a wash out the holidays were and time is to precious to fritter away.
I suppose I could try to make an effort to make an occasion out of New Years Eve-after all if there was ever a time to see the year out in a big way- then this is the year to do exactly that.
So to sum it up, Christmas was a bust but New Years Eve is on it’s way so let’s try to give the Season one last try.
My Christmas wish to you,
May your Christmas day be filled with
breathtaking Dazzling lights
and the most magnificent Dark Shadows ever
