This vid comes very close to something that’s been brewing in me for a while. I call it “The Daphne Doctrine”. Don’t fight it, accept it. Helps if you have a couple of lovely little kids to keep you on the fun and silly.
I set a record this year for myself. The kids and I got our tree on November 30th. Other years I kept trying to coordinate with Mark’s schedule, but this year I just did it when it was good for me and fun for Vivien and Rex. Ended up it was a night that Mark and Oliver were present, so there is probably a doctrine there as well.
What’s the point of fighting the holidays?
