Day 339 — Santa

[for Wednesday, Dec. 5]

santa — dec 5

A friend and I were talking today about Christmas and how we're not feeling so festive. Yet. Yeah, I know getting all worked up about feeling THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT TM is cliché now. Whatever. I can remember when I used to get all giddy about Christmas. When carols and smells and lights and wrapping gifts made me feel all warm and fuzzy. It wasn't that long ago. I miss that. I think it started waning once I moved out of my parents' house and had to give up most of the family traditions. My Christmas used to consist of several celebrations spread over several weeks among the various branches of my family.

Now, work and time passed have whittled all that down to one day where I rush to drive in and then rush to drive back out in time to come to work the next day (or, if I'm lucky, the day after).

It doesn't help that I rarely get to make it to any Christmas parties. Everyone knows boozin' it up helps boost the warm fuzzies.

Come see a Christmas Carol the Musical at the Desoto Family Theatre....We've got a great show. And Tiny Tim is adorable. This is the last weekend. :)

I love seeing a Christmas Carol. You should go. It will def. get you in the mood. We've had so much snow and there are lights up in the parks and it has been so nice. My mom instilled a reverence for the Christmas Spirit in me that will never die, I guess.

Try to create your own tradition. Maybe having a solid SOMETHING to hold onto can help you enjoy this time of year more. I think NOT having it as a kid makes me love it so much now.
