Somedays It’s Hard to Keep the Holiday Spirit

Filled with the Holiday Spirit this afternoon, we went on a quest for our Christmas tree.  At the first detour for a holiday parade, we renewed our Holiday Spirit with a Christmas carol.  When we reached the next detour for a holiday parade sending us even further from our destination, I began to think maybe today wasn’t a good day for our quest.  Mentioning, “Maybe we should get the tree another day,” to my husband received a growl in response.  He was now determined to complete the mission.  We thought for sure at the third detour he would turn back.  But, he only growled louder when we said, “Let’s go home.”  Failure was not an option for my husband this afternoon.  Finally reaching our destination, we were not feeling very jolly anymore.  How do you keep your Holiday Spirit with all of the holiday activities sending you on detours?
