It’s December 8th and I haven’t done a single Christmas post this year. In the past, holiday posts have been a staple of my Decembers. I’ve written a bunch of posts about Santa and a bunch of posts about holiday music. I’ve written a fair number of posts about Chanukah. I’ve written about the language of the season (things like “merry” and “yore” that you don’t hear any other time of the year). I did a five-part series on A Christmas Carol, and I’ve even talked about some of Dickens’ other Christmas stories. Last year, I wrote one post about Die Hard (which is NOT a Christmas movie) and one about Mariah Carey. I’ve talked about holiday food, decorating the Christmas tree, gifts, and shopping. I’ve written about New Year’s, too. I’ve written some fiction about the holidays. I’ve even written about mental health and the holidays.
Now, I’m basically out of ideas. What else is there to write about? That’s not a rhetorical question. I really want to know. Can you help me? Please leave a comment with any ideas you may have. Thanks.
