Ho Ho Huh? [Dec. 8th, 2010|09:58 pm]
spinthemoon

So, Christmas is less than three weeks away, and I am totally unprepared. Well, Husband ordered his own present a month ago and it's packed away in a closet somewhere, so that's covered. And I did manage to hang a wreath on the door and stick a poinsetta on the porch. And the tree is up, albeit without any lights or decorations yet.

OK, OK, so I'm not totally unprepared, but I'm not exactly in the Christmas spirit yet, either.  I refuse to listen to the radio because it still feels like too soon for Christmas music. That's probably mostly denial on my part.

Don't get me wrong - I love Christmas. The cheesy sappy bits and the overly commercial bits and the religious bits (which are of course more than bits, but you get my bit drift). I just haven't had time to comprehend that it's almost here. Any suggestions for getting in the spirit?

"The best way to bring Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear", taken from Elf, but very true. And if that doesn't work I strong suggest Miracle on 34th street or Charlie Brown Christmas, they always make me feel like christmas!

Love you Aunt Jo!

You have heard me sing, right? I think it's safer to watch the movies.

I do have some pumpkin spice eggnong in the fridge...need to pick up some rum, though. Would amoretto suffice in a pinch?

How're you doing now? We have a tree up with lights, but no decorations. Shopping is finished, though!

We got the tree up and lights on the house this weekend, and Husband and I knocked out the rest of the shopping for the kids, so at least that's progress. But I still have to get gifts for my family, and wrap everything.

I think this is going to be one of those years that it doesn't feel like Christmas until Christmas.
