Favorite Thing about This Time of Year

What's your favorite thing about this time of year?

Even though I'm starting this thread during the holidays, it can apply to whatever time of year in which someone posts to it. In early April, I might post "The Masters!"

But for now…

Peppermint ice cream.

Lengthening days.  They're finally long enough I can leave work @ 4:45 and walk 4-5 holes.  But the big one:  come Sunday morning -- start of Daylight Savings!!  Then, at least 12-13 holes after work,

I will name two favorite things about this time of year. 

1) The weather has cooled off down here, and that means I can play more golf. 

2) The Jaguars' season is coming to an end, so my annual suffering is almost over.

My two brothers that live away usually come back to town for Christmas. One is in Massachusetts and the other is in Chicago, so we don't seem much of them through the year.

The Holiday cheer, and the anticipated smiles of happiness. 

That, and it's not 118*F outside.

All the good movies are released this time of year.

Yup! The cool movies come out.  Can't wait to see Rogue One 

For me around the late year holiday season it is that we are finished at work with budget season. Lots of execs take time off so office is not as hectic. I always take the week between Christmas and New Years off and spend it with my kids, so good bonding time.

The food: I love to cook for Christmas and of course make my favorite soup in the world (Posole/Pozole) and all the fun stuff like carne adovada and cheese enchiladas with a pot of slow cooked pinto beans around New Years.

People in general are nicer  

Golf wise here in Florida the fairways dry out so that when I duff it my ball usually still goes forward a bit.

My company normally closes the last week of the year. So I'm looking forward to a few days off from the grind.

Around this time in NY....  It has a certain "je ne sais quoi" that makes the city more electric and alive than any other time of the year.

I love visiting NY anywhere from late November to New Year's day.  Something in the air around this time of the year makes the city more alive than usual.

    • My school just announced similar last night:  masks for all, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors on campus, with some exceptions like if I'm alone in my office.  Students who plan to return for the fall term must either be vaccinated or have an "approved exception or medical exemption," although that's been announced for a while.  Tomorrow is four months since I got my second shot, so I'm good to go as far as that goes. Edit to clarify:  I have no problem with the policy.  "I'm good to go as far as that goes" was my saying I don't have all my lesson plans for the term already in order, that sort of thing.  
    • My wife has a cousin whose wife is completely off the rails.   I mean it’s a planned pandemic, micro chips and Bill Gates are behind it….or worse.   She has had so many posts taken down on FB for the misinformation and crapola that she spreads.   She, albeit briefly, was posting about how the vaccine gets in your blood and makes you magnetic.   So yes, she believed that you could stick keys to your head because of the vaccine. kind of makes deluding yourself you can make that forced carry (when you can’t) seem sane….
    • The anti-vaxers have a ton of excuses.  I have heard many of them.  I have an unvaccinated friend (yes, I even have stupid friends) who quite often "cherry-picks" articles from alternative publications that support his view and he texts them to me.  Anything to support a bad habit.  Smoking is good for you...
    • It would be nice to watch Covid slowly just fade away as vaccinations increase. Unfortunately the dopes who have refused to get it will dream up some other reason why Covid faded. Or we’re in for another lockdown as Delta and other variants surge and they’ll say, ‘ see..what good is the vaccine any way.’ Again, profound ignorance.
