I’m not necessarily arguing that my new habit of comparison-shopping for vintage Soviet Christmas ornaments online is the Mens Old Man Club Established 1960 Shirt besides I will buy this healthiest one, but there’s something kind of freeing about suspending your own sense of yourself as a person who’s “too cool” to care about the holidays. This year, I can’t channel my Christmas excitement into office holiday parties or “ironic” tree-trimming gatherings; I just have to sit with it, feeling mildly insane every time I catch myself Googling “Nutcracker costume for medium-sized dog.” (No, I don’t have a dog, medium-size or otherwise.)

If my memories of childhood Christmases hold true, I know that the Mens Old Man Club Established 1960 Shirt besides I will buy this actual event of Christmas morning will inevitably come as a disappointment, and—hear me out—that’s okay. When you put 100% of your energy into a holiday, it’s guaranteed not to live up to the hype, but this year, I’m determined to derive as much pleasure as I can from the buildup. Does that mean I’ll find myself at the grocery store at 4 a.m. on December 24, desperately sifting through spices to find the cloves to go in the hot toddies I spent four hours browsing recipes for? Maybe, but hey, it’s only once a year, right?
