Which holiday is my favorite? Wow. This is hard. Not because I love them all. I don’t. But because I have to think about it. I know, I know. That sounds terrible. I have to consider so it’s hard?
The difficult part about choosing is deciding which holiday is my favorite. I have memories from many holidays and some aren’t great. Easter is hard because that’s when my grandfather passed. Sure, I look at it as the time I had with him was good. I miss him because he made me laugh and looked a lot like Walter Matthau. But it still makes that holiday hard. Christmas isn’t a particular favorite because there is tension within the extended family. If one member (not me) can’t control how we celebrate Christmas, then that member isn’t happy and will make everyone’s life miserable while letting you know how they feel. Not fun. DH doesn’t believe in Sweetest Day or Valentine’s Day. Granted, he’s good about doing sweet and valentine-y things throughout the year (which I like better because I don’t expect it), but it does bring out awkward looks when we don’t celebrate those. We celebrate New Years, but since the tot isn’t so small any longer, it’s not the same.
Doesn’t leave much left? Halloween. That’s got to be my favorite. The black cats (I particularly love cats and loved it when I had one orange cat and one black one – Halloween all the time!), the weird decorations…the strange lighting… I love it. The tot is into sculpture, and wants to make the props for theater, so he has some false starts. The heads have become heads on pikes to put in the front yard where it always floods, so it looks extra spooky. Yeah, we’re that kind of decorators at Halloween. If I can work a cat decoration into the overall look, then I will. I have a whole bathroom done in cat. It’s a small one and there isn’t nearly as much as there could be.
What about you? I went the roundabout way to answering this. What’s your favorite holiday? I’d love to know.
