Festivus December 23, 2016
I acknowledged the holiday, but settled for good thoughts and Festivus wishes to some friends.
My son and DIL are spending a few days with us ,he cooked the turkey /roast and pavlova for desert and my other son from interstate skyped us on the day which was very enjoyable for all concerned as we chewed the fat.
Grievances ? I have missed out on a lifetime of festivuses .
This is going to sound a bit weird. Even though I'm not a dubbie. I still don't celebrate Christmas. Sure I say merry Christmas to people in the street. But as for a meal and gift giving I really just can't be bothered with it, and am great full that I don't. I guess you don't miss what you never had.
Even during my 50 plus years as a true blue dub, I always enjoyed this time of the year. Contrary to what we were suppose to believe about people being angry ans selfish during the holiday season, I found it to be the complete opposite. It's a time for family and time off work. What could be better?
Oh yea, getting ready for a jw convention. Oh what joy!
Back to reality, I wish all a happy, loving, and prosperous fest of your life!
