I've whined on here in years past about my lack of Christmas spirit. If you haven't been here long enough to know about that, I have archives. *points to sidebar* Ever since about half of my family died off, it's just not felt like the holidays.
This year, I decided, will be different. I am going to force myself to feel it if it's the last thing I do. I'm leaving my radio set to the station that plays Christmas music 24/7. I also make myself sing along to every single song on that station while I'm driving. I'm already getting the outside lights up, and a little on the inside as well. I've already watched "National Lampoons Christmas Vacation", "The Nutcracker", "Santa Clause: The Movie", and "Miracle on 34th Street". I have a majority of our Christmas presents bought, and new wrapping paper too. I bought the Christmas outfits, and even little reindeer antlers for the kids. (And me) I even have a Christmas beaver on my computer. No, really. See?
I'm going to have a Merry Christmas no matter what. Hopefully it will go well, and I won't turn out like Clark Griswold.
