It’s quite alright to say, “No!” to a holiday. It’s ok to write off an entire season. Sometimes holidays are worthy of looking forward to. Sometimes they’re not.
It’s perfectly fine to ignore the myriad external messages elbowing each other to influence us. People, companies, cultures, they all would love for us to spend, do, and feel exactly as they think we should.
Never mind them. Really. Sometimes some holidays (and/or seasons) are best ignored.
Do whatever works for you. Mark time, survive, thrive. Before you know it, it’ll be holiday-free January.
Whatever any one of us does, we’re never alone. We’re all unique yet all human. Be good to each other. Take good care of yourself!
What do you do when you want to ignore a holiday?
