It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
It is finally beginning to feel like Christmas as well. I do think the lack of that special, Decemberish, Christmasy chill in the air has had a lot to do with the fact that I have been forgetting that Christmas is coming. I have been struggling to get in the spirit of it... been missing that excitement and joy that I have had every year in years past... been missing the desire to prepare gifts or listen to Christmas music. It is depressing to say the least. When we set up all our decorations... well, it was probably the most lifeless decorating session we have ever done.
Yet in the last day or it has begun to feel a little more like Christmas. The Christmas decorations around the house are no doubt helping me to get in the spirit, as well as the realization of it's closeness. I am getting more excited, slowly but surely. I am not fully there yet, but it's coming.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
