Hey. Real talk. Much like you, Christmas was born more of drunken debauchery than any kind of religious fervor. And, much like you, it was way too much fun for more than once in a year 😉 One of the cultural ancestors of Christmas, Saturnalia, was as much a drunken orgy as any other celebration. You guys, Romans partied – you have *no* idea (if pictures of those parties existed now, they would be behind a paywall and an age verification). But so did Norsemen, and Gauls and Goths and Visigoths and… Get it? So maybe there’s an underlying, almost subconscious desire for sexuality that just inherently manifests in our ideas of decorating? And food, obviously. Oh right, gifts too. Because pagan or not, is there a better gift than a brand new baby? Everyone likes making babies at Christmas. Heh-hem.

I'm a married, stay at home mother of 4, with a lot of crazy going on. Being a parent is so rewarding, but very exhausting! Ha! My husband is a musician/entrepreneur with a lot going on, so I manage most of the day to day and happen to find a lot of humor in all the chaos. If the choice is laugh or cry, I'll choose laugh every time. :)
