It Me(me)

Whatever kind of candle you'll be lighting, tree you'll be festooning, feast you'll be tucking into with your nearest and dearest, or livestream you'll be watching come new year's eve, know that aside from being united by the gravity that keeps us on a communal rock adrift in the cosmos we're also bound by an ability to laugh at ourselves as the stress, mess and expectations of all our holiday traditions creep up on us. Dear gods (yes, all of them), so many expectations.\

Let these holiday memes be a gift of self-reflection for each and every one of us. All your feels have been memefied. Don't worry, you'll know your holiday meme when you see it.
