I'm not sure if you've read my posts about how much I love Christmas? It is by far my favourite holiday and I can't wait for Hallowe'en to be over so I can get out the Christmas decorations and send my cards.
This year; however, I just can't seem to get into the Christmas spirit. Sure, the house is decorated and we took the kids to the Santa Claus Parade; but, not much more. I make my Christmas cards each year and only have a handful completed, and no desire to do the rest.
I haven't even taken the kids to see Santa yet.
The floor under my tree is pretty much bare, with the exception of the three gifts my parents took the kids out to buy. I've bought a few things here and there; but, again I would normally be finished my shopping by now.
I don't know why I can't find the Christmas spirit. I think it's the commercialism and politics of it all. The true meaning of Christmas has been lost on so many people; and it's become increasingly difficult to just wish someone a "Merry Christmas" for fear of offending them.
Or maybe, it's the guilt of spending money on gifts when we have bills to pay. Whatever the reason, Christmas spirit, eludes me this year. I really hope, I can get into it soon because I'm missing out on all the fun the season brings.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
