Christmas is coming

Just need to make it through today. And then it’s here. December is upon us, following that cruel calendar trick that brought Thanksgiving to us way too early.

Tomorrow begins for me, among other things, 25 days of watching Christmas-themed movies and TV shows. My general rule is don’t watch anything produced in a year beginning with 2. My one exception? Bad Santa, probably my favorite Christmas movie of all time. I call it “new,” but even that one’s 15 years old now.

When my students and I discussed Christmas movies today not a single one of my 11-year-olds had heard of it.

Thank God.
