I had a nice day with lots of relaxing, tons of snow, and I still treated today like Christmas. My dad's work got all of the drivers off of the road early and sent everyone home. The roads are horrible. The salt truck finally came into my neighborhood and I think they buried my car in with even more snow. I don't think I'll be going anywhere tomorrow. I'd say we probably have seven inches of snow now and they are calling for two or three more this evening.

Nine houses on my street were lit up on Christmas Eve and yesterday. Tonight? Not one but ours. I just don't understand how people can go from being in the Christmas spirit for months and then suddenly just shut it off, act like it never existed, and move on once midnight strikes on the 26th. Once your birthday is over you don't stop celebrating with people at midnight on the dot and I am pretty sure no one says to you "It's 12:00, your birthday is over! You're not important any more! Time to move on!"

I am going to go turn on a Christmas movie and have some snacks!

I had a friend a few years ago, (he moved away) he use to be as gung ho for Christmas as I was around Thanksgiving. He had all his decorations and tree up before I would, but he took everything down by noon on December 26th. He didn't want any reminders of Christmas after that, I always asked him whe he would do that. Some of my stuff stays up until the end of January, including one of my trees that I have kept up until the weekend before February. I have a hard time letting go of the Christmas season.

Your household is the keeper of the Christmas flame, be proud, let your lights shine as long as you can.

Santa tears up and says, "ho, ho, ho" quietly. I cry everytime LOL.

Every year on here I say how much I want snow, but it won't really happen. The last time was in 1988 and 1996. I love snow, but I don't want to drive to the mountains just to see it. I loved what you said about birthdays. So funny and so true!!! Wise words.

Last year was a bust and I can't deal with another snow-less winter!!
We're getting lots of snow here in Central Pa!
