Let's just say my husband doesn't enjoy most of the trappings of the holiday season, and this year was saying "Bah humbug" to just about everything I delighted in. He scowled at everything I picked up in the store, until I found a "Bah Humbug" banner. That got a grin and a thumbs up. So home it went, and I fixed him a little "Bah Humbug" tree. The black and white puffs and striped ribbon are meant to evoke Humbugs - the British hard candy.
Remember Charlie Brown saying that he wasn't going to let commercialism ruin his Christmas? Well, I've had to fight for my bit of Christmas Spirit, too, my entire life, and I'm enjoying the little "Humbug" tree - despite any sourpusses!
While I think each of us should feel what we feel, and not fake things or alter our true hearts, I also think it's a good idea to open one's heart to fun and wholesomeness, when we can. "Keep the wheat and blow away the chaff."
Keep on keepin' on, dearies.
