Ready for Christmas

grtpmpknI just finished watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.”  It is now officially the Holiday Season otherwise known as Christmas.

Yeah, there’s still Halloween and Thanksgiving but they don’t count anymore.  It’s all about Christmas according to the TV.

The good part is that this year, I’m ready for it.  I’m looking forward to the next two months of Christmas.  I think I’m going to put my my tree sometime in mid-November.  Maybe even sooner.  I’m really looking forward to it for some reason.

Usually I loathe this time of year because of the rampant commercialism and commonality.  For some reason I feel like I’m over that and ready to embrace the real meaning of Christmas and what it means to me rather than what it used to be.  I sure hope I can hold this feeling in the face of onslaught of commercialism stupidity.

Wish me luck.
