2020 Holiday Spirit

In a past post on this blog in 2011, I shared this post about not feeling Christmas-y.  This is a tough year for so many people, for a million reasons. Discussions of lack of "holiday spirit" came up in a group I am in this year. People are really struggling right now. It's very hard. A few years ago, one of my sons started sneaking non-ornament items on our tree. Like Frosted Mini-wheats. And sugar substitute sweetener packets. Measuring spoons. Maybe sometimes adding some humor into the holidays helps?  

I jokingly said in the group, "Maybe we should hang tintype images of angry little girls as ornaments."  Humor can be a way to face challenges. Even in Christmas decorating. If you go to Pinterest and search "grumpy girl tintype" you can find some stellar images.
