If my memories of childhood Christmases hold true, I know that the actual event of Christmas morning will inevitably come as a disappointment, and—hear me out—that’s okay. When you put 100% of your energy into a holiday, it’s guaranteed not to live up to the hype, but this year, I’m determined to derive as much pleasure as I can from the buildup. Does that mean I’ll find myself at the grocery store at 4 a.m. on December 24, desperately sifting through spices to find the cloves to go in the hot toddies I spent four hours browsing recipes for? Maybe, but hey, it’s only once a year, right?
I started to notice it on Sundays. Over the years, during those lazy weekend days, I’d throw on clothes to walk around the block to the bodega or to grab a midday coffee only to get to the front door and notice that my boyfriend and I were in matching outfits. Sometimes, these twinning moments made us laugh. Sometimes, they sent us back into our apartment so that one of us could change. I always blamed it on the day, since Sunday is in fact all about ease. As far as fashion is concerned, it’s a day to lean into hoodies and Converse. But it isn’t just that Sunday’s are sartorially more casual or more unisex leaning, in terms of outfits. It was also the day that my boyfriend and I had been around each for a full 24-hours.
When it came to our schedules for the rest of the week, we were both likely to be out and about on our own at work, with friends, or running around, but we always treasured our weekends spent together. Fast-forward to 2020. Not only have the last 12 months equated to one long casual day thanks to quarantines, work from home, and countless cozy options, but it’s also led to quite a lot of time that my boyfriend and I have spent hunkered down together.
