‘Twas the holigay season, and ‘straddlers all ‘cross the land
knew winter was coming when our holigay content went up as planned.
They organized cute parties for ten, hundreds, or more,
And found present ideas from gift guides galore.
Then somewhere in Slack, there arose such a clatter,
As I got excited for the holidays to matter.
I’ve been ready for this since October started,
And it only got worse as Thanksgiving departed.
In fact, I was so excited for the season to come,
That I went looking for seasonal projects for everyone,
And as visions of Pinterest swirled in my head,
I set out to share them, and wrote this for you in bed.
Now queermos! Now ‘straddlers! Now commenters and lurkers!
On crafters and bakers from all faiths and backgrounds!
To the kitchen to cook! To the living room to sew!
Now get on my level! Get festive, you all!
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Despite my predilection for Santa, there’s stuff in here for Christmas, Hanukkah, and just-plain-winter festivities. Have no fear: your experiences are here.
