    I'm already feeling all "Christmas spirit-y."

    I've recently seen 2 or 3 Christmas special of different shows I watch, purely by coincidence, and it's got me feeling the ol' Christmas spirit. My friends are going to hate me. For the next two months I'll be humming Christmas songs, watching Christmas movies, insisting on going sledding if it actually snows this year, etc etc. So what about y'all? You get bit by the Christmas bug?

    I have a really hard time getting into Christmas for some reason. Not sure why...there's no tragedies in my past associated with it or anything, I just don't much care for it. The wife and kids get way into it though. Hell, my kids have been singing Christmas carols (in English and in French) for weeks now...

    Eh. Call me Scrooge.
    Call me Fred, call me Clyde
    I just like to ride...

    I enjoy Christmas, but this is wayyyyyyyy too early. My official start time is Thanksgiving weekend. I put up the outside lights and start watching the movies.

    I know it's way early. I usually don't even realize christmas is coming up until at least thanksgiving. I think it's because just recently I've had a string of good luck, and it's got me feeling all positive and whatnot, combined with the fact that I'm already being reminded that it's coming up.

    No that's the one thing that I haven't had good luck with... But I've waited 8 months so I can wait another couple of days.

    I've been buying things for the vintage aluminum Christmas tree I acquired this year. In the past week I've bought some aluminum garland, some of the plastic icicles, a few ornaments, and a Penetray color wheel. I have one color wheel that is in various states of broken, but I figured it would be nice to have a fully functional one.

    So, I'm all excited about the tree, but haven't had any thoughts of actual Christmas activities yet.

    Eh Christmas is stressing me out because I haven't started shopping yet. Usually, I'm a third done by now. Also, I'm moving/buying a new house over the next month or so (and the new house means I'll have to buy a car after going without for 4 years), so I'm stressing about whether we'll have the cash on hand to go big for my wife's extended family like they expect every year (and hell to the no on going into debt for Christmas, especially for relatives we see once/twice a year at most).
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I got a few stuff from last year that I bought on clearance...great idea. I haven't got much else. I'm usually a last minute shopper.

    I am going to start celebrating the 4th of July by putting Christmas lights on my house and marching in the neighborhood parade in a Santa suit. It will be easy to find the Santa suit, because I am going to wear it at Easter too when I had out Christmas eggs.

    It's way too early. I've started getting really embarrassed for humanity the past couple Christmases. People throwing money away on expensive toys while others are starving on the street. It just doesn't seem right.

    Maybe since you are so close to me, we could stand outside the local Walfart and collect cans for the starving.

    I've started getting invitations to Christmas parties. The first party is on November 30. That seems just a bit early to me, but maybe they got a discount on the venue for booking early.

    I don't get all of the Christmas stuff out until after Thanksgiving. My one exception is election night in November - I usually watch A Christmas Story because there's nothing on TV except election results.

    Your post reminded me of this song for some reason.
