Silent Nights


I’ll admit it. Most years I love Christmas.

The lights. The sounds. The smells. The sense of anticipation in the air. Christmas music playing twenty-four hours a day on the radio. Endless replays of A Christmas Story on TBS. The one peppermint mocha I’ll drink all year just because I can. Watching our kids lose their minds on Christmas morning.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”

Some years it really is.

But what about the others? What about those years when it’s not the most wonderful time of the year? Because let’s be honest, we all have them.
