Source: tasteof Erase the week between Christmas and New Year's From: Pretty much everyone To: A benevolent person(s) with power We, the undersigned, propose the fol- lowing: Dec. 26 through Jan. 2 is pointless. Really, it is so stupid. It's like putting shoes on a baby. It is past time for this chronological inefficiency to be ad- dressed. Those who observe Christmas are sim- ply on their last leg come Dec. 26. They have not slept since mid-month. They have wrapped approximately 65 boxes shaped like irregular nonagons. They have listened to "All I Want for Christ- mas Is You" six times a day. Their chil- dren have looked into their soul and said, "Why are you tired? " Indeed, many do not celebrate. But that does not exempt them from stress- ors of the season, or Mariah Carey. The streets overflow with impish drivers and shoppers. Workplaces runneth dry with vacations, operating on skeleton crews. The few reporting are forced to hold up the whole place while the lucky ones eat margarita salt and Ho Hos. Furthermore, it's time to acknowledge that everyone is faking it this week. Noth- ing of substance gets done. Do not hide! We see you watching SportsCenter on your phone! This is no longer sustain- able. We need to close. We do not propose the dates disappear from the calendar entirely, as this would only result in a pre- mature entry into respon- sibility and consumption of non-starchy vegetables. The point is no one is ready to go back to anything. We, the undersigned, suggest all ac- tivities related to society and its ongo- ing operations cease from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2, at the earliest. We propose this peri- od become a national dead zone, a fog- gy place of ill definition, a "Purge" with- out the crime. Businesses, except for essential services, will close. It will be like ear- ly pandemic quarantine, but with just the slumber party vibe and none of the staggering dread. We will not get dressed. The hours will slink together into a heavy-breathing blob. Outdoor activities such as walking in a park or sitting on a shoreline will be permitted, but not promot- ed. Anyone forced to work will be paid triple-overtime-and- a-half. They will be greeted at the punch clock with a dai- ly gift bag, like at the Acad- emy Awards. Congratula- tions on your 24-karat vape pen and three-night stay at Sandals Antigua! As further consola- tion, they will be excused from partic- ipating in civilization the first week of January, which is only fair. We, the undersigned, believe this tweak to the association of humankind will result in a happier and more ratio- nal populace, reducing the potential for January antics. Now, please excuse us. We have a three-hour lunch to get to. Agreed upon by: Yeah, all of us. Stephanie Hayes is a columnist at the Tampa Bay Times in Florida.

We received no postcards this week at Sweets Col- umn, Winslow, IN 47598. Winslow Patoka River is high, but not overflow- ing, but the White River is over its banks and the Ohio River is also. At the end of 2021, our temps were chilly in the high 50s to low 60s, with rain to end our year. However, then 2022 came in, the temps dropped into the 30s, with 20s and 30s at night. On January 6, for a few days, we had some snow flurries, with just a dust- ing on the roads and grassy areas. Temps were in the 20s with nighttime temps in the single digits to the teens. I don't like the cold temps, but we need this coldness to take out the varmints that come out in the spring to summer. The winds have been strong, in the 5 -20 mph range, with gusts of 20 -25. We hope you all had a great end of 2021 and your New Year of 2022 started off great, with happiness and health for the entire family. This brand new year will have its ups and down, but don't let it get you down. Strive to work out your prob- lems and be kind to everyone. Our New Year's Eve was spent at home, where we did our own partying with sum- mer sausage, chips and dip, and our fa- vorite drink. We watched T V from Nash- ville, where they welcomed in 2022 in the Eastern time zone, then the Central time zone. At midnight, we toasted each other, kissed in the New Year, ate a bite of cab- bage, as we heard some our area make some noise. Fireworks started at dark, but for about 1/2 an hour or longer, it sounded like it was on the corner, but they were 2-3 blocks away. Our New Year's of 2022 started off with the rain ending in the morn- ing, that left puddles and streams of water in the yards. We sat down to eat dinner as we enjoyed our ham slices, cabbage and black-eyed peas that we snacked on the rest of the day. Lots of yards like ours have their decorations taken down, but some will leave them up for another week or longer. It's also nice to help friends out when they are needing someone to feed the animals. We decided to get a Powerball ticket since the amount was higher, but we didn't come even close to the num- bers. No millionaires. Wednesday, on the T V news, we saw Roy Henderson as he talked on winter- izing your home since the cold weather has arrived. We had several stars say "Happy New Year," so to everyone else, Happy New Year to you and we all hope this year is a lot better with health than last year. Stay safe and social distance, and wear your mask when needed in crowds. The snow is falling and sticking to the roads where we have seen our first slide, all the way around on our side street and he came out of it without hit- ting anything. Then later, the town came through to spread sand down to help the side streets. Not much more to talk about, so the lights are about to dim for this week. Keep an eye on family and friends. Slow down and see all the wonders in your ar- ea. Since the bad weather is here, you should driver slower anyway. As always, smile, wave and say "hi" to everyone you see this week.
