'Tis the season

Ah, yes, it's that time of year again.

- Tis the shopping to be sweaty
- Tis the season to invest in extra water bottles
- Tis the season when pouring a bottle of cold water over a child's head is perfectly acceptable
- Tis the season to spray eachother with the garden hose
- Tis the season when people with swimming pools experience a sudden surge in popularity
- Tis the season for wearing as little as possible

-Tis the season to use the aircon (bugger the cost!) or go to places that have it
- Tis the season to hate shopping because everyone has the same idea
- Tis the season to detest Jingle Bells

- Tis the season of clear blue skies during the day but it's too hot to go to the park
- Tis the season to tie down outdoor furniture at night
- Tis the season when the lawn needs mowing again after a few days

- Tis the season that junkmail floods lawns
- Tis the season to hide credit cards
- Tis the season to start paying off Christmas laybys

- Tis the season to lie to small children
- Tis the season to bribe small children

-  Tis the season that ice cream becomes its own food group
- Tis the season to buy mangos, grapes, watermelon, plums, apricots and peaches
- Tis the season when fruit becomes an acceptable lunch and salad an acceptable dinner
- Tis the season to BBQ
- Tis the season to curse things with wings and six legs

- Tis the season to lie awake at night unable to sleep
- Tis the season when "see you when the sun comes up" means you are giving your children permission to wake up at 4:30am
- Tis the season when toddlers refuse a day sleep
- Tis the season when you can't really blame them because it's so humid
-Tis the season to ease up on TV time limits because it's too hot during the middle of the day to do much else
- Tis the season to bath the kids several times a day

- Tis the season kids go feral
- Tis the season to encourage school teachers to persevere because its only a few more weeks until their giant holidays

- Tis the season to designate time for each obligatory yule-time gathering
- Tis the season to try to convince small children to colour in print-outs and be amused at why they want nothing but to "draw" at home but refuse to do it at playgroup/church/Sunday school
- Tis the season to practice "oh it's lovely, thankyou"

- Tis the season to start wondering where all the Christmas stuff got shoved last time it was packed up
- Tis the season to start wondering where to fit the Christmas tree
- Tis the season to realise we have far too much stuff
- Tis the season to alternate between thinking "I don't think we will bother putting the tree up this year" and "ooh can we put the tree up now, I can't wait til 1st December"

- Tis the season to remember the little baby born in the manger
- Tis the season to thank God for sending Jesus to us
- Tis the  season to think about how much it must have hurt a virgin to give birth (come on, I doubt I'm the only one who has felt sorry for Mary when thinking about it..  carrying, birthing and raising the Messiah would have been a huge honour but OUCH!!!)

- "'Tis the season to be jolly falalalala lalalala". So they say.
