People ask this of me frequently. Those who know me, don't really know me as the life of the party by any means. So my enthusiasm for this season strikes them as out of character.
I am current writing a series of blogs that I hope will help people understand the answer to this question. I will be posting them in the next few days so stay vigilant. They will be thick with the usual bitter comedy/sarcasm you know me for. I'm not angry about my history though so keep that in mind as you read them.
It makes me laugh. Hopefully you will find it funny too and perhaps share some of your own disastrous experiences.
