I’m also a Gemini, so I tend to celebrate Christmas by running around like a spaz trying to make it to every party and every store to find the perfect small-but-funny gifts for my close family and friends.
I don’t enjoy the commercialism around Christmas, so I just try to keep it lighthearted and fun, without spending too much money or stressing out if things don’t get done. I really just want to laugh with my friends this time of year.
I learned this from my quirky Aquarius mother, who couldn’t find the Christmas tree topper one year and so she replaced it with a Yoda hand puppet from my brother’s Stars Wars collection.
My mom also couldn’t be bothered to send out Christmas cards on time, so one year she just quit forever and refuses to feel guilt about it. And at the same time she has the heart of a humanitarian, so she gives generously to everyone she encounters who is less fortunate — and she does that all year, not just during the holidays.
I’ve inherited a lot of my own holiday traditions from my mom, but I put a Gemini twist on it. I give as much as I can to as many people as I can handle, I decorate erratically and I don’t send cards, either. And I won’t often risk setting my kitchen on fire to bake cookies or anything like that — let’s leave that holiday activity to the more domestic signs out there.
Every zodiac sign takes a slightly different approach to celebrating, no matter which holiday. So wherever you are this time of year and whatever holiday you’re celebrating, take a look at those around.
I’ll bet it’s the Taurus who’s preparing a feast, the Pisces who’s going to midnight mass and the Gemini who wrapped a bunch of little presents so fast she forgot which gift was what and for whom it was intended. Yeah, I do that every year. Merry Christmas Eve!
