This outfit is a bit Christmassy, isn’t it? It was largely unintentional; I was just low in my tights selection and olive seemed like a better choice than hot pink chevrons. (Although I’m sure that outfit will be coming someday too.)
Michael is kind of a Scrooge (read: he worked at a grocery store in his youth and, as such, can no longer tolerate Christmas music), so we don’t go super hog-wild in our house with the decorations or Christmas cheer. This year I did buy a small pine wreath from Trader Joe’s and decorate it with the single ornament in my possession, gifted to me just a week and a half ago by my mom. Festive!
I will admit that most Christmas music does get tiresome after a while–I was in the pet store a couple of weeks ago and the schmaltziest, most maudlin country-esque song came on about a poor kid who was trying to buy his dying mother shoes so she would look pretty for Jesus, yadda yadda. I may have mentioned it already, but it bears repeating. Oh my word, it was terrible. But also hilarious, because I am of the generation that looks at something and thinks, “My god, that’s ugly. I must have it.” So what’re you gonna do? There are, however, a few Christmas-related things I will never tire of:
How about you? Christmas music: terrible? a delight? or something in between? What novelty songs (or regular non-novelty songs) must you have when the holiday rolls around? Or, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, an alternate question: how do you feel about soy products?
