The Most Unholiday…

…feeling holiday ever.

Did anyone else just not feel like this holiday season felt very merry? It wasn’t bad or sad or anything of the like, it just didn’t feel like the holidays. It didn’t feel like Christmas or New Years. I didn’t get the same joy from watching my Christmas movies. I enjoyed them but it didn’t feel special with that holiday anticipation and sparkle. The whole thing just felt a but empty in comparison so other years. I have no idea why. Just did. New year, same me I suppose. I just feel weird about the whole thing. Can we get a do-over?

All These Silly, Made Up Holidays…

…aren’t so silly in my opinion.

Today is World Ocean Day and National Best Friend Day. I have heard these days called ‘stupid’ or ‘silly’ but I think they are fun. They give you a reason to think of your best friend or eat donuts or celebrate the ocean. Why can’t they just be fun. This goes along with my disliking the term basic – have some fun and like what you like. Take these holidays as a fun thing and roll with it or ignore them.

There are definitely more important things happening in the world right now then these holidays but you gotta find your joy somewhere and today mine was found in the goofy holidays.

What is your favorite ‘made up’ holiday? (p.s. Donut Day actually has a cool history complete with donut lassies – I wonder how many more do to?
