I am going to say something shocking now. Are you ready?
I don't really like Christmas.
I mean, I don't dislike it, exactly... but the sight of a Starbucks red holiday cup just does not fill me with the same joy that it does 95% of the population. I haven't had a tree for the past 5 years and haven't regretted for one second. I do not gleefully throw on a Christmas album the second Thanksgiving dinner is over. When it comes to Christmas, I could take it (the presents, specifically), or leave it (the forced merriment, the traveling, the endless office parties).
But even I am considering getting into the holiday spirit with this wonderful Joy to the World map (as seen on my idol Emily Henderson's Christmas Special). I love that it conveys the spirit of the season without hitting you in the face with cutesieness, glitter, or baby Jesus. I am still more Grinch than Cindy Lou Who, but this may just make its way into my photo wall.
