Happiness and cheer. La la l (indistinct mumbling) la favoRITE TIME OF YEar!
Oh, it’s Christmas. Well, Christmas adjacent; we aren’t quite there yet. But Christmas is nothing if not some formless set of days on days of wreathes, trees, family and movies lumped together into one big merrily ribbon-tied gift of a season. And boy has it been a season.
I believe I’ve come to realize how truly terrifying it is to be out in public during Christmas now that I work in a business whose store location is literally on the corner of one of the busiest streets, at one of the busiest intersections in town. I’ve almost been hit multiple times, I’ve almost hit people multiple times and usually it isn’t the work day that’s stressful so much as it is just driving.
For how beautiful this season can be, it can be equally terrifying.
