I have to confess... I don't like putting up or taking down decorations.
I don't think I would call it a hill, but whenever I go to my parents' house for Thanksgiving I always end up helping my dad drag the artificial tree parts into the house, and all the dusty ornament boxes, and then I have to help untangle and test the lights, and walk around the tree stringing lights and garlands and getting poked in the face by pine branches. I find that more fussy than fun. I guess putting the ornaments on is the least unenjoyable part to me, but even so, I just don't take a particular level of joy in it. I am just so happy I'm not around in January when my mom takes it all down.
I will admit I think this is kind of weird, because I really like looking
at Christmas decorations, and thinking about how a space would be decorated. I literally stand in front of the tree when I come back for Christmas looking at all the different ornaments and admiring it all, even when no one is around to watch me. If I was rich and had a big house, I would love decorating it for the holidays, and by "decorating" I mean I would decide what to use and where it should go, and then supervise other people who were actually doing it. It just seems so tedious to me.
Yes, my mom is extremely disappointed by this.
I help at Thanksgiving because she really enjoys it and because my dad shouldn't be doing all the heavy lifting by himself, and because the heavy lifting is all
he does because he's not really into it either.
