Dear hand-me-down garland,
Since you are are doubling for our tree this year, I am pretty happy about you. You look cute with ornaments hanging on you. However, you will not always have that particular honor, so enjoy it. I am hoping 2014 can bring us our first actual Christmas tree....Also, I apologize for the bunching of lights on one end, and sparsity of them on your other.
Dear 'Bing Crosby' Pandora station,
Marvelous. I have no complaints other than that you have way too many versions of "Baby, Its Cold Outside" and "Santa Baby". Stop it. Other than that, don't stop it. Play on.
Thank you for loving me enough to give in on your hard and fast 'no Holiday music before Thanksgiving' rule. I am not sure I really knew what real love was before this. Also, you did a pretty good job of meticulously painting my popsicle sticks red. Lets make out later.
Thank you for allowing me to feel festive with the aforementioned popsicle sticks and metallic poster board. You truly understand
poor people on a budget.
Come come come come. (read to the beat of the little drummer boy's rum tum tum tum. Obviously.)
