Today’s prompt is: The time someone or something ruined your holiday season.
When I was married Christmas was a day of hectic movement, timelines and too much food. It wasn’t that it was ever ruined there wasn’t time to consider that as there was a sense of having to be somewhere on time or questions would be asked.
Since those days my Christmas has slowed down. Once my dad died, and I have been on my own Christmas has been even slower though one year my sister invited me to Christmas lunch. I discovered she had invited every friend she’s ever had and I felt very out of it. So I’ve declined her invites since.
Of course, I have tried to maintain my dad’s preference for a ham sandwich for Christmas lunch.
