Christmas Decorations 2011

I’m as ready for Christmas as I’m going to be this year. One tree, no village, no baking, and probably no Christmas cards. No special Christmas parties, events or family gatherings.  I just don’t have the time, the energy, the desire, the family, or the money this year. I’m this close to shouting “Bah Humbug!”

I am sorely lacking in Christmas Spirit this year. I just want it to be over. I  hate being such a Grinch, such a Scrooge, but I can’t help it. I guess it’s just one of those years. A Blue Christmas.

Still… My decorations are out… And they make me feel cozy. They are the one thing that remains constant every Christmas. I guess that’s why I struggle to find a place for every decoration and every ornament, every year.

    The snow globes and the elves are my favorite. I hope the Christmas spirit lives in your heart, as it sounds like it is a difficult time for you this year. I am sending a hug your way.~Sheri at Red Rose Alley

    I know how you feel, all the trappings of Christmas just get to be too much sometimes. I am so tired from working I don't have the energy anymore, I kept it simple this year.And as for money it seems like the harder we work the less we have-I am truly tired of working and watching people that make no effort to work getting all the benefits. This world is truly in a mess!
