I can't help it. I am so in the mood for Christmas. It really has nothing to do with presents or anything like that. I just like the mood and the decorations and the music. I like to just walk around the mall and look at the decorations and listen to the music playing. I've been playing Christmas music in my car over the last couple of days, and it just makes me happy. My husband got in the car last night to go to dinner, and I had John Denver's Rocky Mountain Christmas playing. He was like, "OMG, seriously?". LOL. I can't wait to put my tree up and all my decorations. He won't let me until at least this weekend. I always have them up before Thanksgiving though.
I also like how there are many opportunities at this time of year to give to those less fortunate even if you don't have a lot. There are lots of drives for food and gently used clothing or toys. It warms my heart to be able to give what I can and know someone can benefit. I know we can do these things all year, but at this time of year it is really important. It's really cold outside, and the need is more pressing. I encourage everyone to do their part this season to help a less fortunate family have a merrier Christmas.
