I was joking with a friend yesterday on FB. I wished her a Merry Coffeemas (because we both have a deep and abiding love of coffee) and she said it ought to be a real holiday, sooo...
I'm taking it upon myself to declare the day after Christmas to be Coffeemas. (Cuz, lord knows we probably all need coffee on the day after Christmas, and what better day to relax with a nice, hot cup of java?)
Most likely, right now, all your relatives have gone home. You're still feeling full from yesterday. The kids are wiped out from the gaiety of Christmas. The pets are chilling after chasing bows and attacking wrapping paper. Treat yourself to some of the dark nectar.
Take right now--this very moment--to forget the worries of 2014 and to ignore the what-ifs of 2015.
Cuz Coffeemas is all about relaxing and enjoying and taking a moment for yourself.
And should you doubt the validity of Coffeemas, we even have songs:
Juan Valdez is Coming to Town
Deck the Halls with Roasted Java
Grandma Got Run Over by a Starbucks
Away in a Cafe
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Barista
How will you be celebrating Coffeemas today? And if you're a non-believer, what's your morning beverage of choice? (Because on Coffeemas, all beverages are welcome.)
