Christmas Day Letdown

I built Christmas up this year,
so it’s been a bit of a letdown.

I’m not holly or jolly or even
merry, really. In fact, I’m 

wearing a holiday frown. I
know that Santa came, and I 

reaped the benefits, but there’s
still a lack of that spirit that 

enchants and uplifts. You
could say I’m in a Christmas

slump, but then again there’s
always next year. It’s going to  

be off the charts amazing—silver
bells and tidings of good cheer.

I just need to keep thinking that
every day until next December.

Success! You're on the list.
