If Christmas tree decorations, Christmas cards, stockings, poinsettas, garlands and red hot candy candles are indicative of the Christmas spirit, I've totally got it.
Admittedly, I was slightly concerned this year about the Christmas Spirit because I'm living alone. Totally and completely alone. As in, my house is void of any other human besides myself. So I approached the whole idea of Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree cautiously because I didn't want to send myself into Depressed Mode.
But as time has progressed and the weather's dropped colder and carols are being (annoyingly) sung again and again on the radio stations, I completely and thoroughly have been sucked in. Alone or not, I have the Christmas Spirit.
And in an effort to be ahead of the game, I've written my Christmas letter and will mail it out Thursday. I've gotten some Christmas shopping done but I have my list made. I've purchased all the goods for our work Christmas party, which I volunteered to have at my house. I've got the garlands up, the stockings up, candles lit in their cute Christmas-y candle holders and a WELCOME mat all decked in snowflakes and red. Really, I'm quite pleased with myself.
Today's task is to find my Christmas tree.
