.....in keeping the party going after Christmas until the tree dries up and we all are required to be elsewhere. We're on lockdown. We might get out of here on New Year's Eve, who knows? Why put all that emotion and energy into Christmas if you're not going to milk it for every last drop, if you're able to.
1. Start water for coffee
2. Yell "it's still Christmas, guys" with fists in the air
3. Plug in the tree, put on the Pandora "Christmas Radio" station and start the fire (in the fireplace)
4. Plug in the outdoor lights
5. Play! Eat! Read! Attempts to peel yourself off the floor are futile.
As a bonus, this type of holiday immersion insures easy entry into the fresh new year! I could live like we are right now forever, yet the idea of everyone going back to school and work brings the appealing promise of new productivity. Win-win!
