Have you ever wondered why January has to come so soon after December? I'm never ready for it. All of December is Christmas and family and decorations and little white lights. Then we hang up the new calendar. January. Arctic blasts, sub-zero temperatures, icy windshields, frozen garage doors.
I think that in my mind's eye, the calendar is one long vertical strip with December at the bottom. If they made calendars in the shape of a circle, like all the months getting equal treatment (remember Arthur's roundtable? or maybe the desks in your elementary school classroom?), then maybe it wouldn't seem like there should be a big gap between December of one year and January of the next. I need time to brace myself for January. How about you?
