It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Festivus…

The holidays, the traditions, the carbs…as 2012 nears its end, I look at my iCalendar and realize I am over-scheduled, over-whelmed, and over-indulged.  However, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

As much as I try to fight it, the Holiday Season has reared its festive head upon us – Elf on the Shelf in tow. That being said, I have been secretly listening to Holiday music in my car since early November; it’s only socially acceptable post-Thanksgiving. You do the math…

As a born and bred Floridian, the Holidays in Ohio are a relatively new experience for me. I am accustomed to seeing Holiday lights strewn upon palm trees, not building a snowman in my front yard (read: I am 25 and have never actually made a snowman), and getting really excited when the weather dips below 70 degrees, score! This year, it’s a whole new ballpark: I am hosting the annual Feats of Strength, carving the proverbial Holiday Ham, and come heck or high water, I will be building a snowman! You hear that Al Roker, bring me snow to my neck of the woods…

In the grand scheme of things, complaining about a lack of snow is trivial when there are individuals in my own community who don’t have a roof over their head or enough food to fill their stomachs. This Holiday Season, I encourage you to give back, like Red Roof Gives Back. I encourage you to step outside your comfort zone, and help a person in need. A warm meal and smile go a long way, you’d be surprised.

And as a special treat, Red Roof will give back to you!
