It is the time of year when Constance and I would watch holiday movies. We had a tradition of watching Muppet Christmas Carol. Like most films, she relished the opening song and dance and then quickly lost interest when the plot began to unfold.
My favorite holiday movie is It’s a Wonderful Life. If I were limited to contemporary films, I would say Four Christmases. I will be skipping holiday movies and traditions this year.
It is tough for me to see the decorations on houses and in stores. It is a December filled with crying and missing Constance.
Those friends brave enough to invite me to their holiday parties were likely as surprised as I was that I came, enjoyed myself, and didn't cry or make anyone else cry either.
