Christmas Miracle or Christmas Irony?

white Christmas

Pretty much the exact opposite of this…


It would be pretty easy to call it Christmas carol irony, but that just seems so cliché. I turned on the CBC to hear some carols and was soon treated to that old standard  “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas.”  It was not unexpected, but it seems all too apropos, because dreaming is about all I can do.  There certainly is no white here.  In fact, the temperatures are so high that I could be wearing shorts and taking my bicycle for a spin….hey, wait a minute, what am I doing here writing this?  I was going to make this longer, but…. there is some place I need to be.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy __________! Have a great day full of food, friends, libation (if you wish), Netflix (possibly) and whatever else may contribute to the greater happiness.

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
