I don't know what's wrong with me -- maybe it's the weather -- but I just haven't been in a very Christmas-y mood this year, and last year wasn't so great either. Money has been kind of hit-or-miss this year, but there's some shopping I didn't even bother with until December 22. And all I ended up getting was gift cards.
I used to pride myself of my gifts, but distance from family members has lessened my enthusiasm for what I'm confident they would enjoy. I just feel lame handing people a plastic card that might as well be a greenback. It requires only slightly more time and thought than pulling a twenty out of your wallet when someone reminds you that today is special and you didn't forget did you?
Even now, I'm writing this in lieu of wrapping presents, even though I have to wake up in six hours for Christmas (Eve) morning with my parents. Why am I putting it off?
Maybe it is the weather. Or maybe I have so much on my mind that Christmas just can't fit into my thoughts right now. I used to listen to Christmas music every day in December. Now I only hear it when I'm sitting in Subway eating lunch.
I guess it's pretty late to do anything about it this year, but I think I know what my New Year's resolution is going to be: Get in the mood for the holidays. Every holiday. Next year I will celebrate. Next year I will have Christmas again.
My reservations aside, I hope everyone reading this has a wonderful holiday season!
