'Tis the Season

The symptoms started a few weeks ago now.  Insomnia, loss of appetite, inability to concentrate.  It seems like the flu struck early at my house, but, no.  It's much more serious than the flu.

It's Christmas Disease.

You may be asking yourself, "What in tarnation is Christmas Disease?"  Well, professionals would categorize Christmas Disease as a syndrome, "a group of symptoms that collectively indicate or characterize a disease, psychological disorder, or other abnormal condition."  That abnormal condition is simple: I am too excited about Christmas and, really, the entire upcoming holiday season.

The remedies I've found so far include regular consumption of Edy's Peppermint Ice Cream and copious amounts of planning for each holiday leading up to Christmas.  Consequently, I've been tethered to my cookbooks to track down the most delectable Thanksgiving recipes possible.

With the onset of Christmas Disease, it seems only appropriate to kick off the holiday season at Hot Dinner Happy Home.  You can take advantage of my (someone compulsive) Thanksgiving Blitz with upcoming posts.  We'll cover dinner, drink, and decorating ideas for the big day.  And check out the new Thanksgiving tab at the top of our page for a compilation of all things Turkey Day.  Throughout the month, we'll be adding more information, so check back often!

So, if you feel Christmas Disease setting in, grab a (very large) bowl of peppermint ice cream, and come on over to Hot Dinner Happy Home.  We'll help you through the holidays.
