Ready for Christmas?

As illustrated by my dwindling posts, I am busy with Christmas and wrapping up year end deadlines at work. I'm actually ahead of the game in terms of shopping... I often leave most of it till the last minute. I'm also in the spirit this year, which feels nice. You ready for Christmas?

Christmas Shopping
"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukka' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukka!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'" ~ Dave Barry

What do you call people who are afraid of Santa Claus?
Claustrophobic.

I got most of my Christmas shopping done, too. Just some potlucks and stocking stuffers left.

Ready for Christmas? Are you kidding? I think everything's going to end up getting done this coming weekend, crammed into a small space as usual.

Great quote! I ranted today on my blog about the business of pretending Christmas trees are "pagan." I would be ready for Chanukah, but one of my Sharper Image gifts is shipping late and I can't find the weird keycase my husband requested.

Merry Christmas, Nienke!

No, I'm not ready, and I thik if I don't think about it, it might go away. LOL!
