Every year as soon as Thanksgiving arrives, I look forward to Christmas. Not this year. I don't have any Christmas spirit this year and I can't figure out why.
What's causing me to have the Bah, Humbug feeling this year? I can't really say. Could it be because we haven't had more than a couple of inches of snow total so far? Nope, don't think this is the reason. I hate the snow and the less we have, the happier I am.
Could it be that with starting a new job, I can't take any time off? Could be. I usually would take a couple of days before the holiday to spend on all day shopping trips with my mother. Can't do that this year.
Could it be that everyone I know is struggling and wondering how afford gifts for their loved ones? I'm sure that's a big part of it. I know giving gifts isn't just what Christmas is about but I love giving gifts to show my love and appreciation.
I can't really pinpoint the exact reason, but I sure hope to find my missing holiday spirit soon.
