What are you missing most?
Today, while I was watching tv, I randomly thought: Gee...I miss Christmas commercials. I really do. I really miss the Verizon, Kmart, Wal Mart and Target Christmas commercials I saw like 10 times a day since November. I even like the creepy Garmin one. I also miss driving around at night and seeing Christmas lights.

So, what are you missing most?

Hi ReineV.
What I miss most I think is the general bustle and sene of friendly happy purpose that people seem to have when they are out and about in the run up to Christmas.
I went out tonight around 6pm to do a little shopping, and people seemd to be shuffling around, heads down, hands deep in pockets, tramping through the snow looking very morose and quite unlike they were before Christmas even though the weather conditions are pretty much the same.
It is a melancholy time of year for sure!

I miss all the lights and decorations that were in the stores and on people's houses.

If I didn't have my CD's and DVD's/tapes, I would miss the Christmas music and Christmas cartoons. I still listen and watch them, so it's not too bad.

I agree with Maebeary...I miss all my decorations out. I also miss all the local businesses all lit up.

I am like everyone else above. I miss the commercials especially the one for Folgers coffee where the brother comes home and is having coffee with his sister and he gives her a present and she says "You're my present this year........." Made me cry every time. I miss the decorations on the houses, the general feeling that "in the air there's a feeling of Christmas......." I miss everything........

Defintely the decorations. I miss sitting in a dark room with the tree turned on and a mug of hot chocolate.

I miss the outdoor lights
Everything is so bright and cheerfull before Christmas. This time of the year we could really use the lights to brighten things up!
