My favorite month of the year is December. I like colder months more than the hot ones. I say “You can always put more clothes on, but there’s only so much you can take off.” December’s still early in the winter, so it’s not so cold or dark as January seems to be. I’m not yet wishing for spring. I wish I lived in an area that got more snow, though. We get mostly rain and ice in the winter here.
December also has the big holiday season. I enjoy the lights, and even the church services. I don’t like the shopping crowds, so I always try to get my shopping done early. Of course, it usually ends up being late when I finally get it done. The other thing I don’t like is the annual rhetoric about an alleged “war on christmas.” Maybe I’m just too open-minded, but I figure you should just let everyone celebrate their holidays in their own way.
