Dec. 11: You might be a military spouse at Christmas if…
…the only thing on your Christmas list is your spouse.
…your Christmas tree is still up (or gets put up) in July.
…your Christmas tree gets eaten by the movers.
…you have ornaments from 17 states and 3 countries.
…you open presents over Skype.
…your Christmas card address list is written in pencil and has been erased so many times the paper is thin. And let’s not forget the fact that it grows by about 25 people each year, yet none can be left off.
…you cook Christmas dinner for 8 even though your family only has 3, because the single troops need somewhere to go too.
