One of the good things about working in a school is the total acceptance of crazy garb such as the famous teacher’s Christmas sweater. Teachers know that the sweaters are over the top, they know that it might not be figure flattering but who cares? We are our own little society here and this society is all about love and fun. We don our reindeer ears with the balls on top, our sparkly homemade pins that were past presents from former students. We decorate with paper chains. Santa hats worn on a daily basis do not cause comment nor do our extensive collection of holiday socks. Admiration only. Feel free to dress as an elf and dance around the dining hall. There may be some snide comments but there will be an equal number of young girls saying “I liked your elf dance, Mrs. Plantress” and smiling upon you with their full understanding and approval. YAY Now, off to dig out some flashing Christmas bulb necklaces and tinsel for my hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ps-did I mention the gifts of stinky hand lotion which are sure to follow? Double yay
