I don’t have children. I never had to wait in line to storm a 1994 wal-mart on Black Friday. I am not hosting this year. By all measures, I’m in for a peaceful holiday.
BUT I’m already feeling itchy about social gatherings, work events, and crimbo shopping. The hustle and bustle of holiday preparations can lead to burnout. I need a low calorie lever to cool off when it becomes too much.
Enter the extravagant Christmas shower.
It’s how I replenish and recharge without losing any festive momentum. The whole routine takes about an hour, about the length of time it takes to forget my mom’s problematic opinions on Megan Markle.
Anyways, you read it here: Solo festive moments are as important as gatherings.
