Anybody else having a hard time getting into the Holiday Sprit???

Don't get me wrong - I have EVERYTHING to be thankful for, I just am not FEELING it. What are some of the things that you guys have done to "get in the mood" LOL!

  • I'm in the same boat, lol. DH and I have everything to be grateful for, we're really happy, but not feeling the holiday spirit. The cold weather makes us want to cuddle, so we definitely "get in the mood" LOL.

  • Decorate!!! That will help me, and I am sure it will help you.

    I have no tree, I am going this weekend.
    A few lights in the window.

    Oppps, I didn't shop yet. OMG, I am so not in the spirit, my kids don't know what they want.

    Hello, How can you not know? My kids don't. It will be a very simple xmas, I explained Santa has alot more kids this year.

    I just am tired of clutter. :)

  • I play some Christmas musiclistening to tunes 

    I do fake at times only because I love my family and don't want to damen their mood as well.  Mothers make it all happen during the holidays so I make that effort for them.

  • I was great til dh came home from work last night....his boss is being a jerk and putting backcharges on his paycheque coming up which means I'll have enough to barely cover the mortgage and bills.

    now I just want to cancel everything.

  • OP: It is my baby's first Christmas, the tree is up and the house is decorated......Maybe it is because we are really broke this year and so far there are not presents under the tree. That sounds REALLY lame when I have been blessed in so many ways - maybe I just need to get over myself and pull up my big girl panties!!
    Think I will bake something that requires frosting - if that doesn't put me in the mood for Christmas at least I will have a sugar high!
