The Winter Blahs

I love Christmas. I love the festive atmosphere. I love Christmas lights and Christmas trees. I love the time we spend with family. I love how the world seems a little kinder for a bit. I start looking forward to Christmas right after Halloween.

Then Christmas is over and the winter blahs hit.

The lights are down. The tree goes down.

It’s cold.

It’s dark.

I do have a winter birthday and I can look forward to all of my free birthday stuff, but we don’t do big birthday celebrations, so there is not an event to look forward to.

In the past, college basketball gave me something to look forward to. Now, Kentucky is terrible and the games aren’t fun to watch.

The NFL playoffs are here. I get one weekend of watching my team and then they will most likely be out.

I end up watching the Super Bowl mainly for the commercials.

I have a bad case of the winter blahs and only warmth and light will heal me.

      1. Light really does affect people’s moods. I had a friend growing up in Seattle that had to get a special light to fight her Seasonal Affective Disorder. Eventually she moved to San Diego.

  1. I 100% agree. Christmas is so nice. It’s just so warm, fuzzy, and toasty. I love everything about it, but once it’s over…

    I try not to think about it, otherwise my mood would be way worse. I have a friend who posted on IG that there are 63 days before spring arrives. LOL. We’re almost there!
