It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas

Barely! We have been celebrating the season for quite some time now. Really since right after Halloween when I put the tree up, but there has been something wrong.

Maybe it's that this family of three is from the West where there is cold and snow at Christmas time. This warm weather does nothing to get me in the festive mood and Holiday spirit. I want icicles and snow angles and hot chocolate and crackling flames in the fireplace. I want to watch "Christmas Vacation" and "It's a Wonderful Life" and have "A Christmas Story running on a constant loop on the TV. I want all of these things, but I can't have any of them, and it really bums me out.
