Today is December 26th, safely the day AFTER Christmas. Looking back (all the way to yesterday), I thought I'd weigh the pros and cons to see if Christmas was a success.
What unit of measurement did I choose? Dollars spent? Cards mailed? Smiles on gift recipients? Laughs shared?
No. The best measurement of Christmas success is dependent on only one thing:
That damn song about the shoes. You know the one. I've mentioned it before.
And no, I didn't hear it. I was afraid the few times I went into stores where I was at the mercy of their mood music but they spared me the horror. I didn't even hear it on the radio.
So by my standards, Christmas was a huge success. Yay!
