How many times do you hear people say, “It just doesn’t feel like Christmas yet,” or “I’m in the Christmas spirit?” This year I performed all the usual rituals: decorate the tree, adorn the house, buy the gifts, party with friends, play carols on the car radio, watch the movies, sing in the church cantata, etc. I can honestly say that I’ve made a strong effort. To be honest, there were a few times when I really felt that warm, fuzzy feeling while completing my holiday assignments, but generally I don’t feel as though this week is any different than any other. But seriously, what is this “Christmas feeling?” Is it some mythological force in the air? Is it a spiritual experience? Or have we all just had a little too much eggnog? What are your thoughts?
