Let’s face it, it’s getting trendy to hate this time of year. More often than not, the mere mention of anything festive post-Halloween is greeted with a furrowed brow, a groan or even a humbug. In some ways, I get it. After all, the line between cheerful holiday hustle and bustle and harried, grumpy people clogging up every aisle and parking lot is a thin one. To top it off, the holiday season has become increasingly subsumed by politics and consumerism, like so much else in life.
