Christmas, it makes way for Spring.

It’s really easy to be in low spirits each year when Christmas is over.  It’s the crash of all emotions when you wake up on December 26 and realize that “it’s all over again”.  They try to give it a name, “Boxing Day” to make the blow a little softer, but we all know what it really means: Christmas cheer is over.

But, the past couple years, I’ve found this day to be exciting.  It’s almost a breath of relief that another year is coming to a close. The focus is finally off Christmas. Now, it’s time for reflecting back on the past year and remaining hopeful for the next.  It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do, even if it’s terribly chiche.

This lyrics of this song titled “Boxing Day” are wonderfully written.  (Yes, it is Relient K.  Yes, it’s one of my guilty pleasures and yes, I do believe they are pretty good songwriters.)

It encompasses exactly what I feel each Boxing Day.

“Take it all down, Christmas is over

Do not despair but rather be glad
We had a good year, now let’s have another
Remembering all the good times that we had

Oh, no more lights glistening, no more carols to sing
But Christmas, it makes way for spring

The hearts of men are bitter and weathered
As cold as the snow that falls from above
But just for one day we all came together
We showed the whole world that we know how to love

Oh, no more lights glistening, no more carols to sing
But Christmas, it makes way for spring

Oh, no more lights glistening, no more carols to sing
But Christmas, it makes way for spring

Oh, remember that Christmas it makes way for spring”


do not despair, but rather be glad

live what you love.
