I have two shows on Christmas Day this year, but I am determined to have a wonderful Christmas anyway. In that vein, I have already begun decorating! Since I am also thrifty and living in cast housing so I have few supplies at hand, I decided to use the leftover blue ribbon from my Tardis Halloween costume for Christmas decoration. Great idea right? Waste not, want not. Reuse, don’t rebuy. Blah, blah, blah.
I bought some blue tinsel and lights to compliment the blue ribbon. And as I was decorating, I began sing “I’ll have a Blue Christmas” to myself. And that’s when I had realized my horrible mistake! Either it looks like I’m decorating for Hanukah, which is fine but not the point of my five Christmas trees. Or it looks like I’m creating an homage to a depressing Elvis song about being alone and having a really depressing Christmas while the girl you used to love plays in the snow!
So, now I have a Christmas conundrum. Do I redecorate? Do I accept the badness? Do I cluster all of the blue and have a few multicolored trees? I want Christmas wonderment, and the blue ribbon just isn’t doing it!
I’m going to have to get a wreath or something, because I refuse to have a blue Christmas!
