I have not had much holiday spirit since 06 when my mom passed away. She always made Christmas fun.

There are two reason I have not been in the holiday spirit this year an the main one is I lost my grandfather last month a week before thanksgiving. I was hoping he would pull through for one last Christmas. But he is in a better place now.

The other reason is it just hasn't been cold at all.

I went and watched A Christmas Story and It's a Wonderful life last night and that helped me a bit but I'm gonna have to work Christmas so I won't even be able to enjoy myself with family.

I dont want to spoil Christmas for the people around me.
Christmas has always been about Other people.

after all... it is when we celebrate Jesus' birthday.
Try to "buck up" and think about all the Joy you can give to someone else!

Than...with all the smiles that you place on other people,YOU might feel the love back!

Have the best Christmas ever!

I don't want to start a religious argument, but Jesus was not Born on Dec. 25th. Mary was visited by the angel on December, and Jesus was born toward the end of September, fall, at the last of the Feast of the Tabernacles, that is why Bethlehem was full and the Inns were all full and Mary and Joe had to go to the stables.

So the life, spark of Jesus was conceived in December.
The bible has tons of facts and stuff to prove this.
Another thing, the Angel told Mary her cousin Elizabeth who was thought to be barren, was in her 6th month of pregnancy, she would give birth to John, aka John the Baptist, who was born in March, the third month, and so 6 months later month in September, the 9th month, Jesus would be born.

Its just the common way to celebrate it in December.
And if your catholic and believe life begins at conception, than December 25th is still correct.

The truth is, it really doesn't matter when he was born, just that you believe he was born and he was/is the son of god and our savior.

God bless, Merry Christmas.
Keep those rangers safe and not wrecked lol.
