Christmas for Curmudgeons, Or: How I Learned to Stop Complaining and Love the Holidays

A flock of scroogesAnybody who’s been reading this blog at all regularly has picked up on, I’m sure, a certain misanthropic bent running just below its surface like a sewer line, and, for the most part, it’s not an act. Chances are pretty good that if I’m awake, I’m ranting. So you would think that this time of year would be my time to shine (so to speak) with all its factory-made good cheer and it’s nauseatingly first-world problems, but it’s not. The holidays are when the amateurs, the pikers, the poseurs and the part-time grumps come out to let us all know what wrong-headed sheep we are. In the last thirty or forty years, bah-humbugging has become an industry unto itself, and it’s gotten to the point now that the complaints against the holidays have become as raggedly clichéd as the clichés they pretend to combat.

Holiday Party Time!

Happy Holidays everyone!  At the library, we've always celebrated this time of year in style with our annual Santa's Ranch.  Come out this Saturday 1-4 PM for food, crafts, music, facepainting, and of course a visit with the big guy himself.

At 1 PM join us as the Living Bells Handbell Choir plays holiday favorites such as "Home for the Holidays" and "Here Comes Santa Claus".  Then at 2 and 3 PM, listen to Christmas jazz played first on a trumpet then a saxaphone.

While you are here, don't forget to visit Santa's Gift Shop to pick up that last minute Christmas present!
