Christmas is my drug this year

Halloween hasn’t even come and gone and I’m skipping that aisle and heading straight for the Christmas stuff:  cards, ornaments, lights.  I even bought my stamps two weeks ago.  I checked out the stash of gifts I’ve already bought and I’m seriously thinking about wrapping them and piling them up in the living room.

I’m not sure what’s gotten into me this year.  It could simply be that I’m anticipating taking that week off (since I haven’t had a proper vacation all year) and I’m scheduling my Christmas activities already.  Yes, there will be touristy events:  Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, holiday windows and St Pat’s cathedral.  Maybe I’ll drag a friend to the NY Botanical Gardens to see the toy train show or travel to Longwood Gardens.  I’m even tempted to buy tickets to see the Radio City Rockettes! I will spend Christmas Eve with my friend and then Christmas dinner with my family.

I’ve switched to Pandora’s Christmas Classics channel and I cannot wait for my cable’s seasonal music to change from spooky to spiritual.  I’m sorry that I didn’t get guitar lessons this year so I could produce my own favorite tunes on demand or share my enthusiasm with friends and family. That will go on the New Year’s resolution list!

I’m not sure why I’m so excited about Christmas this year.  I’m just happy right now.  Heck, I don’t even think I’d complain if it snowed in November.
