Countdown to Christmas

Countdown to Christmas

It’s that time of year again- the month before Christmas. We find ourselves in the midst of a struggle of celebration vs obligation. Here is the emotional rollercoaster that follows the weeks leading up to Christmas.


Remembrance Day/ Thanksgiving is over- you are free to fully enjoy the Christmas spirit.

You go all out, decorating, making goodies and enjoying all that the season has to offer.

You come down quickly when you realize that Christmas is still a month away, and you still have work or exams before you can properly celebrate.

You console yourself with a Christmas movie.

Your Christmas cheer plateaus in the first weeks of December.

But you quickly pass the worst of it and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

You have your first extended family member ask you something too personal and you remember the underbelly of the holidays.
