Holiday Blahs

Ok, maybe it's because I've been seeing Christmas decorations in stores since Halloween, but I can't seem to get in the holiday groove. Despite the fact that Thanksgiving is breathing down my neck, I can't get motivated to shop for gifts, write Christmas cards, plan menus or start decorating. In fact, the Puritanical ban on celebrating Christmas almost makes sense to me these days. I feel like Charlie Brown, irritated by the commercial excesses and sad that the real inspiration and meaning in Christmas is buried somewhere with the 99 cent econopack Christmas cards in the bottom of a Walmart markdown bin.
