Holiday Perfectionism in August

Wednesday, August 02, 2006
Yes, it's that crazy time of year when the magazine world is thinking about the holiday season. So if some of you can do a mental mindshift from sweltering heat and put yourself in the world of snowflakes and holiday shopping and family get-togethers, I'm looking for stories about holiday perfectionism -- specifically how you stopped being a holiday perfectionist ("How I learned to love the less-than-perfect gingerbread house") or how you've become less of a holiday perfectionist ("It's okay if one of the tree ornaments doesn't quite match the others -- really") over the years. Please email me if you have a story to share. (Write perfectionism in the subject line so you don't get gobbled up by the spam eater. Thanks.)

PS -- You have to be Canadian for this story. And, no, it's not because we Canadians live closer to the North Pole and think we have special proprietary rights to Santa or snowflakes or anything evil like that. It's because the magazine that I'm writing for this time around happens to be a Canadian magazine.
