holiday spirit

I'm not sure if it's the prevalence of holiday commercials or the Christmas music Erik was blasting on the way back from the dentist's office this weekend, but I am downright jolly. And it's fully-inspired by the holiday spirit. Sure, I know, Thanksgiving hasn't even't come and gone yet, but I'm all ready to decorate my bedroom.

I already have the red Grammy-carpet on the floor, and I want to get a green throw blanket for my bed. Red + Green = Christmas! I ordered this a few days ago, and it will be delivered on Wednesday. Dude, c'MON - the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree?? How awesome is that?!?

I have to dig out my Rankin-Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer figurines from one of the many boxes in my Dad's garage to set-up that awesomeness, and my stash of multi-colored xmas light strings will need to be dug up as well. All my Christmas music is loaded up on the iMac, the iBook and the iPod, so I should be pretty much hooked up with the holiday tunes. And my variety of holiday DVDs are at hand for random viewing throughout the season.

Because I have been alternating between living hand-to-mouth and being nearly completely broke, presents for family and friends this year will be on the less-expensive side. But that's not going to stop me from finding some rad wrapping paper and ribbons and bows to cover and stick to everything.

Yes, Christmas is my favorite holiday.
