I noticed that many bloggers are counting down the days till Christmas, in much the same way runners count down the days till a marathon. They have countdown tickers on their blog and everything.
What could this mean? Can Christmas be seen as a marathon? A marathon of being jolly, visiting with family and generally eating a lot? And if so, is it something you can train for? Certainly many of us have been preparing since september for Christmas, if not sooner.
Is Christmas a marathon of the mind, of enforced jollity and family-get-to-gethers?
I can't help but wonder.
