Several years back, as Halloween approached, my stepdaughter pronounced that Halloween was her favorite holiday. I thought that was a little odd. Don't most kids put Christmas at the top of their list? Or Thanksgiving, even?
So I asked her why, and her answer made me a wee bit nauseous. . . She said, "Because Halloween 'kicks off' the holiday season; once Halloween is here, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years follow right afterward, one after the other, bing, bing, bing!"
She's right, of course. As a kid, the Fall and Winter holidays pair nicely with school vacations, visits with family, gifts under a tree with the assistance from seven dwarves--or elves--or reindeer--or ??
As adults, that magic stuff fades a bit, and the rapid progression from one holiday to the next can equate to a fair bit of, dare I say, stress? I have a quilty suggestion . . .
