I've noticed that no one in my family is getting into the Christmas mood. Might change around the 20th or something when watch Jim Carry's The Grinch will be a must and that will probably start the mood for some.
I get annoyed at Christmas music starting the day after Thanksgiving so I have to listen to the same old 20 songs over and over and over again for 2 months. I also get pretty tired of my mom being drunk for the week before and during Christmas, that got old a long time ago. AT LEAST THIS YEAR SEEMS TO BE GOOD!
I can do you one better. I walked into Walmart the other day having had a fight with my mom. A little girl was being incredibly defiant toward her mom, all because her mom wouldn't buy her one of those cheap 25 cent machine toys. What really struck a chord with me is how the little girl kept saying she didn't love her mom, just because of a stupid toy she'd likely forget about in a week.
I have the complete classic Red Dwarf series coming in the mail in just a few short hours. Christmas fuckin' ROCKS! Especially when it comes a little early! Anyone who says money doesn't buy happiness has obviously never seen Red Dwarf.
