What to Do When You're Married to the Grinch
Every year in December, there are moments when I feel like my husband Ted is a regular Grinch compared to my Buddy the Elf.

It’s not that he’s busy stealing Whos down in Whosville’s Christmas presents while I’m happily eating syrup-drenched spaghetti and spreading Christmas cheer by singing loudly for all to hear. Nope, it’s more that he has a general lackluster attitude for holidays that’s evident in his participation and excitement level.

Maybe you and your spouse are like Ted and me. It could be that one of you finds more excitement in the holiday season than the other. Perhaps you feel frustrated and discouraged that Christmas cheer isn’t something you share in equal measures. If so, I’m over at Unveiled Wife this week sharing two ways I’ve learned to navigate our differing attitudes when it comes to the holidays.

So if you’re married to the Grinch — or maybe you’re the Grinch — don’t miss my article, “What to Do When You’re Married to the Grinch.”
