The Christmas season was always kind of a drag when I was growing up. My parents split up so, I ended up being my mother’s Christmas servent. It was not great. I spent many weekends and after school ready to help her decorate the house. It would have been one thing if she just decorated. But no, she was in constant fine tuning mode for the entire holiday period. The tree stayed up until after Valentines. I would have been far more satisfied with a cool, colorful tree and relaxing in the comfort of the HVAC heating or cozy home. Fortunately, I no longer live at my mother’s place. However, it took me a long time before I actually learned to like Christmas. I dig Christmas again thanks totally to my wife. She is the absolute Christmas Elf. But, in a good way. She loves Christmas and loves decorate. My wife does this for her and our kids not to impress anyone. That is easy to get on board with. A big thing in our house is burning a lot of candles through the holiday months. They are everywhere and they make the house feel so cozy. Then there is the smell. Every section of our house has its own delightful scents. However, the candles don’t come without a downside. No, not house fires. But, we do make sure we burn candles safely. The big downside is the fact that all the burnt wax ends up threatening my HVAC system. The wax from the candles ends up in the air. In turn, that air ends up going through an HVAC return and getting caught in the HVAC air filter. I have seen my air filter totally slicked over with candle wax. I couldn’t believe it.
