Grinch, Thy Name is Pink

I don't know what my problem is. For as festive and bright I seem to be in the weeks leading up to Christmas, I have to admit that when the day actually comes around, I'm a bit of a grumpy Grinch. All I want to do is sleep and for everything to be over. Am I tired by then? Am I sick of all the merriment?
I was trying to put my finger on it yesterday (during my amazingly long afternoon nap) and I realized two things: 1) My dear friend "Grandma" Gene passed away on Christmas day and 2) I got engaged on Christmas Eve. Two strikes in the negative column right there.
Add to that the fact that it's pretty much a family holiday and while, of course, I have family that I love, I don't have the "traditional" family - you know, the husband, kids, the whole nine yards. Maybe I never will. Perhaps I should just start going on exotic tropical vacations during this time? Maybe that will cheer me up?
