Bah, humbug

I can't get into the holiday spirit.  I've tried.  I made Christmas cards, and tonight, I addressed all of them, and tomorrow, they'll go into the mail.

I've got plans to make my Christmas fudge tomorrow after work, and then go shopping for the supplies to make a few Christmas gifts for friends.

I've been working on my sister's Christmas present for weeks, and I'm halfway finished.

I've planned what to get my parents for Christmas.

I've watched Scrooge the Musical twelve times.

But I'm still not in the spirit.

I change the station every time a Christmas carol comes on.  I growl when people ask if I've finished my shopping.  I'm just not into it.

I blame it on the lack of snow.  How can you people have Christmas without snow?  It's like Halloween without pumpkins, or Easter without chocolate eggs, or Valentine's Day without awful attempts at poetry!

Oh just you wait... you want snow... you're gonna get a whole crapload of it when you arrive here. Do you still own a parka??? Or boots... cuz you'll really need them. And maybe a snowsuit for Mia... she might freeze.

It's because-GASP-we've never known any different. There's never been a Christmas I've been alive when it's snowed.

Hey. We don't ASK for no snow! We don't control the weather! We really do dream of a white Christmas!
