I just came across some weird aggregator that had a post up by me from about this time last year. It kind of goes on and on (I know, how surprising!) about being unable to kind of flip the switch on Holiday Spirit and what one might do about it. As I read it I realized I was in the exact same spot this year, only later, and that advice I gave to myself then would still be good advice for me today. Maybe someone else out there can use it too.
