I've wrapped all presents except the edibles, I've made all candy and the quornballs, I've watched Gremlings and The Muppets Christmas Carol and put up the few decorating things that we're going to have up. Oh, and it's snow enough to drown outside.
Am I in the Christmas spirit? No... not really. I sort of look forward to Christmas but I wouldn't say that I feel any Christmasy feelings.
Very true! According to the "expert critics" in my family, aka mother I overdecorate the Christmas tree. Which is total poppycock since there is no such thing as an overdecorated Christmas tree. If you still see some tree there it's not done.
usually the movie "the christmas story" played on thanksgiving really preps me for christmas and get so excited! But this year it wasn't played on tv, and i've yet to watch my DVD of it..but seeing christmas lights and putting the tree up get me ready for it..i even bought and wrapped gifts last week. this year i'm depressed thoroughly so it's slightly hard to get into the " YAY CHRISTMAS" mood.
I usually get into the Christmas spirit a few days before Christmas Eve (everything before then is just waiting for Christmas Eve); all my shopping is done now, god bless Amazon
To get me in the Christmas mood I have two definite must see movies: (Love Actually - I love the Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln story, and the whole thing is just fun to watch; and Polar Express) - mind you, why anyone would watch Polar Express after Christmas Eve is beyond me (it is the epitome of the Christmas Eve movie).
I also like watching Miracle on 34th Street (remake) and the 1st Home Alone movie, and not forgetting National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on the days leading up to Christmas.
Christmas is all about family and being together and having a great time at the dinner table.
Yes, I've ordered him a a magazine that will go to his house every month, hes been finding it hard to get back into 3D because he hasn't got a job and lost motivation. That some clothes, a box of sweeties and hopefully a love letter and a book of all the things I like. Lets see
Well I'm in a mood with him now so I may pinch the magazines! Haha, nawh, iunno, he has done a lot for me, and has really cared for me when I needed it the most. I never really have money, so I wanted to go a little over board to make him happy
