Santa wears red, so red must be the color of cheer. Even my depressed poinsettia is trying to hang onto a few red leaves. Maybe red will do me good… I can’t afford Christian Louboutin’s red soled shoes, so I treated myself to a new pair of faux fur trimmed fingerless mittens.

Hey, they match the tablecloth. 

I’m just looking for a bit of holiday cheer, which seems to elude me this year.
