I was feeling a bit low on holiday spirit last week, so I knew it was time to blast cheesey, lounge-type Xmas carols and put up a few decorations.
Twinkly lights – check; tiny Xmas tree – check; Cool Yule, Disc I, II and III – check, check, check. Singing carols and decorating the tree usually does the trick. Afterwards, I’m feeling happy and generous and full of holiday cheer.
If decorating and singing fails, there’s always Bailey’s as a back up.
What do you do to get into the Xmas spirit?
[N.B. on the use of “Xmas” – I know some people get upset when they see this. I’m not a Christian, so it doesn’t bother me. It’s just an easier, quicker way to type Christmas. However, it shouldn’t bother Christians either. According to Wikipedia, “the “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός, translated as “Christ.”]
