Ding Dong Merrily

I usually wait until after Thanksgiving to kick off my personal holiday traditions, but I began a little early this year. Thanksgiving was a little late after all.

I started playing my iPod holiday playlist in my office late last week, and for my morning cup of tea I've turned to my seasonal tea of choice, Red Zinger.

I suppose it's because I've been ready for a break for a while. I've had time for nothing but required reading since August. I've had great books to read, but there's something to be said for reading what you want.

There's something to be said as well for things like going to the movies. Christine and I went to see A Christmas Carol, not a bad flick for a holiday mood.

I also picked up Garrison Keillor's A Christmas Blizzard at the library as well. It's a slightly zany account of a Chicago millionare who finds himself by going back to his snowbound home in Looseleaf, North Dakota.

Sometime in the '90s, I guess, I realized the old Emerson, Lake and Palmer lyrics from "I Believe in Father Christmas" are true: "...the Christmas you get you deserve."

So as December creeps on, I always endeavor to make it feel like the holidays.

We started assembling our tree over the weekend, though a decision for more lights delayed the completion. Soon we'll have it in the window, and snow men and Santas are already dappling mantles and bookshelves.

It's my own personal celebration, but it works. Here's hoping it's a great season for everyone.

There's a Spanish Prisoner who's being held against his will. Your contribution can help free him, and once he is free he will offer wonderful rewards to all who've helped him escape.

LOL. Lana and I haven't really established a lot of holiday traditions. Mostly doing some spooning on the couch and watching a few TV shows and movies. Depends on whether my son will be able to come out whether I will fix a big Christmas dinner.

Happy holidays, man! Things are looking up, let's up for a very good 2010!

Enjoy. Personally I try to avoid "doing" holidays, myself. I've seen so many people disappointed by their own expectations. When I treat a holiday like any old Tuesday, however, & great stuff happens, then I can be delighted with a great day.
