I’m working on ratcheting my Christmas spirit up to eleven, but this week feels as if it will be interminable, and thus reaching that level, impossible. Therefore, I’ve written a short holiday satire piece. I didn’t mean for it to come out that way, but re-reading it surprised me. If you’d like a break from the drone of festive cheer, please stop over at the “Writing Samples” and read “December 26”. It may make you laugh. Or wince. Either way, I hope it’s a respite during this week, and will allow you to rekindle your festive fire. Enjoy the Holidays.
