If you listen to NPR (you poor thing) or start yawning repeatedly at 4:30pm because outside it looks like midnight, you might start feeling like you've caught a nasty case of malaise. Fear not! When it's most dark, it's time to light candles, bake tasty treats, and take a walk to admire your neighbors' flamboyant use of electricity. Sure the three layers of clothing are getting heavy and cumbersome and you haven't got the energy to stay up and finish that new novel you just got in the mail from lulu. (If you did order one, THANK YOU!!!) Call up some friends you haven't talked to in months, take some goofy pics out in the snow, and snuggle up with someone you love (or even just like).
I think there's a reason that there are so many wonder-filled holidays during the darkest and coldest time of the year, don't you?
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.
