NaBloPoMo Round 2, Days 15 and 16: "Are You Ready for Christmas?"

Obviously this daily blogging thing is harder in December than November. I will remember that for next year.

I have been feeling frazzled and full of dread because of the end of the semester. But I find that many seemingly normal people hear the word "Christmas" and think, "ohmygodihavesomuchtodoanditsimpossible." I don't know if people who celebrate other winter holidays feel so much pressure and insanity, but Christians sure managed to turn a celebration of "comfort and joy" into a fear that they didn't decorate right, didn't buy the right gifts, etc. it's supposed to be a nice time with family, not a test, isn't it?
