Holiday Spirit for the Rest of Us

Well, it’s time for a repost of my favourite Christmas song of all time. I know it seems odd to some, but I love it for more than it being just a really emotional, powerful song – I love a viewpoint of the holiday that doesn’t show perfect white-picket-fence families. Christmas is for the rest of us as well, in our unconventional, messy and occasionally solitary lives. Real love isn’t a Valentine’s Day card.

I actually feel ok so far this Christmas. The prospect of actually finally being able to get out and turn our lives around has given me so much hope. I may even decorate for Christmas this year. :) (I was too depressed to get the tree out last year, and then that just made me feel worse.) I want to dress the house with every bit of Christmas tat that we own, and then before the year is over I want to do a complete cleansing of the house, both physical and spiritual. I want to exorcise every memory of the past two years, and start fresh. I want to be ready. I want to let all the depression and bad feeling just fall away behind me.

I want to be new again.

  1. Something tells me, that every Christmas I will thank you for introducing me to this song – love it and listen to it every year.

    Btw loving every bit of Cataclysm I’ve seen so far. Even Stonecore, which somehow reminds me of Shadow Labyrinth. Remember your hunt for Sonic Spear, Fox-girl?:)

  2. I haven’t done any instances yet, but am looking forward to it. And yes, how could I forget doing five million runs for the stupid Sonic Spear? That was so infuriating. :)

    Sending holiday wishes to you and your family, and wishing you the best Christmas ever!
