I need Christmas

It’s something of a strange Christmas for us this year. In fact, it doesn’t feel much like Christmas at all. I haven’t decorated nor do I plan to this year. Nope, not even a tree nor a wreath. I put out some red and white snowflake placemats, hung a “Merry Christmas Y’all” towel in the guest bath, and called it a day. Don’t worry, I’m not *exactly* a Scrooge, no more than usual that is, but we are in the process of packing to move to a new home in January so unloading and reloading boxes of Christmas decor is a little more than I care to take on at the moment.

I suppose the most Christmas-y part of the month has been the boxes arriving on my doorstep. Online shopping is my friend, yes and amen.

So, yeah, Christmas doesn’t exactly feel like Christmas to me.
