We’re on the road today! Karl Gross, one of my best friends during my high school years, is getting married tomorrow in Norfolk. My parents and I are drove down to Norfolk this afternoon, and we’re staying in a small Ramada near the ocean. The breeze carries a taste of the sea….

I am slightly annoyed that Karl decided to get married on Christmas Eve. Sure, it makes for a very special time, but it’s a major inconvenience for everyone involved. Saalon is facing a similar situation, but one in which he potentially has to choose between being a groomsman at a friend’s wedding, or seeing his family for Christmas.

Christmas time is a hectic time, even when everything goes smoothly. Why make the holidays any more stressful than necessary? Get married in January — or, even better, on Valentine’s Day.
