It starts with Halloween. The rest of the year seems a blur. Next year seems vastly far away, but will soon come upon terribly quick. I don't remember the last time I dressed up. I can't even remember what I may have dressed up as. Then Thanksgiving is around the corner. The last 2 years I found myself playing shuffleboard and drunk, but having a good time to not necessarily have to be with family. Then the family part, which is Christmas that comes next. Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree, how we all see each other once yearly.

All the holiday spirit is dry in my soul. I do like the lights. I do wish every one a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

The ironic thing is immediately after New Year's Eve, it's such a let down and anticlimactic feeling come over me. More ironically, I don't ever remember the clocking striking midnight, so how memorable can that be?
