This year I was determined to change all of that so that Sidekick only has good memories of Christmas. I wanted to create our own traditions. I wanted to begin loving Christmas and not dreading it each year. I wanted to be wowed by the magic of Christmas!
I tried to get into the holiday spirit because of Sidekick. I put up a Christmas tree, decorated my house, and put Christmas decorations outside. Because of a fallout at my sister's last Christmas (see, bad memories of Christmas once again) Sidekick and I are alone this year because we weren't invited to go to my sister's. I've tried to make the best of Christmas and have failed miserably.
