Maybe some people will find this sad, but the holidays barely register with me anymore. I always feel like, “Oh, that holiday is this weekend?” Except for perhaps Thanksgiving and Christmas, I actually find it odd when people ask if I am planning to celebrate. It all just sort of washes over me, and if anything, I feel relief that I don’t have another thing on my “to do” list.
One thing I do enjoy about the holidays, however, is that a popular dance teacher in town hosts a large, extra-long, all-levels dance class, complete with live music, every holiday (including Christmas). It’s both festive and inclusive, and that is something I can celebrate!
