I have been so incredibly ready for the holidays since early November this year. Usually, I insist on waiting until after Thanksgiving before listening to any Christmas music, or thinking about Christmas, or anything like that, but for some reason, this year I was anxiously awaiting that time when I could give in to the holiday spirit.
Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone over two weeks ago, and I’m still searching for that holiday spirit.
I’ve been listening to Christmas music every chance I get. I went to a holiday party last night. My parents house is all decked out with lights and such. I even watched White Christmas today! But I’m just not feeling it.
Maybe it’s this crazy, whacked-out weather we’ve been having – 30s and 40s one day, then 50s and 60s the next, with no warning. It’s enough to drive anyone bonkers!
Maybe it’s that I don’t have my apartment decked out for the holidays – no Christmas tree, no ‘candles’ in the windows, no wreath to hang on the front door. I had the opportunity to get one of those mini trees this weekend, and now I’m wishing I had.
I’m tired of being a grinch. Who has my Christmas spirit, and how do I get it back?!
