Now that sounds like a great idea!!! I think I shall try that! I might even try to cook a roast turkey on the 25th of each month too! (left over turkey sandwiches.. YUM!!)

I guess you could say that I as well have a touch of the "After Christmas" blues. I took down all my outdoor lights and decorations yesterday. I feel like a Scrooge for doing so, but I do know that they have to come down.

The things that help tide me over to next Christmas.....

1. I still have a few Christmas items out to look at from time to time.

2. There is this wonderful website and all you good people to share our passion of Christmas all year.

3. I have recorded Christmas themed TV shows on tape or DVD to watch through out the year.

With these 3 mentioned items, Christmas 2008 will be here in a flash!

Glad you like the idea. It really helped me last year. Last year really struck me the hardest, cuz there was this BIG family reunion from relatives around the world, and we havent done it for 5 years. So when everyone left, I was so down.

I'm looking forward to being a member of this forum this entire year! Woo hoo! And I always thought I was the only one who got in the mood for Christmas songs and shows throughout the year. I'm glad I was wrong!!!

I love it everytime there are "new" members on here who appreciate/enjoy/get excited for/like to talk about Christmas anytime of they year/do Christmassy things throughout the year & LOVE Christmas as much as me!!! Makes me feel so much better about my Christmas obsession!

Dvdguy and I were feeling a little sluggish too, but it turned out that we were sick. Darned cold caught us both off guard. We're both better now. In a weird way, it helped us get past the "after Christmas blues".
