Remember the alleged reason for the season? Enjoying time with family and friends, eating good food, and giving and receiving gifts? Well now that that’s all over with we can get back to normal life, where we don’t have the hassle of wrapping gifts into the wee hours of the morn or stressing over the Christmas brunch menu since your hubby volunteered to have the family get-together at your house this year. We’re not saying the Christmas holiday are all bad, we’re just happy it only happens once a year. So join us in celebrating the quick coming and going of the holidays and allow those holiday worry lines to disappear from above your brow.

No More Spending Money

Thinking about those charges you racked up on your credit card and all that dough you dished out for Christmas gifts is enough to make your eyes cross! Note to self – pay that debt down for the New Year!

We’re Finally Away From Family

This is that look you give when you’re around family during the holidays you’d rather not be around, imagining when you can finally escape that one cousin making snide comments about your weight gain. Or that one uncle who always has his hand out for money.

Travel Is O.V.A

Putting up with flight delays and packed airports is a drag. Home sweet home is calling  your name. It’s time to do a flying leap onto your bed.

Store Traffic Is Back To Normal

There are no more worries about bumping into rude patrons too concerned about their own holiday shopping agenda to say “excuse me” or utter a “my bad” at the least.


No More Packed Parking Lots

Circling round and round to find a parking spot for  20 minutes, silently cursing yourself because you decided to get gas after shopping and your gas light just came on — yeah we were over that.

We Don’t Hear Christmas Music Everywhere We Go Anymore

If we heard Jingle Bells or Carol of the Bells one more time somebody would’ve gotten hurt.

No More Being Asked For Donations All The Time

Don’t look at me like that, donations Santa. You don’t know that I just donated ten bucks at the last store I visited. I had Christmas spirit, until it was zapped by so many folk with their hand out. So ring that bell at the next person, please and thank you.

We Can Stop Obsessing Over Getting That Perfect Gift For Someone

Trying to figure out what to get your dad or sister who has everything already can be nerve-racking! Can we say – adult onsies?!?

No More Cooking Family Feasts

Food shopping, hauling bags home and cooking up delicious dishes can zap anyone’s energy – here’s to wishing someone would complain about leftovers. . . for the rest of the week!

No More Fake Surprise Faces Over Wack Christmas Gifts

Oh, thanks for the awesome candy-cane, Christmas dog shades. It’s what I always wanted for my smug pug.
