The tree is up and decorated, and the stockings are hung, but somehow I'm lacking Christmas spirit. Perhaps it's because we celebrate 6 birthdays between October and December 11th. Who can focus on Christmas when they're knee deep in birthday cake? There was a time when I could, but I find my attention can only focus on one thing at a time these days.
Tomorrow I go to the big city. Perhaps the Christmas decorations there coupled with the chilly weather will help.
