I’m not sure if others around the world call the lead up to Christmas the “silly season” like we do in Oz, but the moniker certainly applies. Life just gets uber crazy and I’m starting to feel the effects (it is only 38 days until Christmas after all).
I guess in Australia, not only is it almost Christmas, but December is also the end of the school year and the start of the summer holidays. With so many end-of-year events, holidays to plan, Christmas to organise and the temptation of warm, sunny days, life really does get silly.
Even though we are going to be having a covid-safe summer holiday and Christmas (=quiet), it doesn’t seem to have lessened the crazy that is now going on. My diary is so full of things I’m starting to dread looking at the week ahead.
It’s about now I look forward to Christmas day (I’ll talk about how we celebrate Christmas in a future post).
Are you in silly season?
