The holidays can be fun for a lot of different reasons. But it’s an aggressively social time of year- celebrations, gatherings, parties, events, reunions- as mentally exhausting for some as it is enjoyable for others.
Personally, I can handle an obligatory social event…I can stand in a corner and wait it out with the best of them. I don’t want to brag or anything, but wallflowering? It’s an art; I’ve mastered it.
