The past two Christmases I’ve noticed something. It’s not really a big deal, just a little odd. This is only the past two years, but the wrapping on the presents isn’t what it used to be. When my kid was little, the wrapping used to be clean and precise. Sharp, even lines and three or four different papers to make it look more festive. This year and last year, all the paper is the same and, there’s no other word for it, the presents look sloppy. It’s like they decided that as long as it’s covered it’s good enough. Some presents have a bunch of extra wrapping, and some have to use paper patches to get everything covered. The presents themselves are still wonderful. I just can’t figure out why the wrapping has gone downhill. I hope Santa isn’t getting lazy. Maybe he has a new elf or something. We’ll see how the presents look next year.
