One week till Christmas! Can you believe it? I mean, I guess it doesn’t matter since the world is ending soon or whatever, but it’s still nice to have dreams.This year I am proud of myself for starting Christmas early. My cards were done the first week of the month and I haven’t stressed about gifts really at all. Everything I need to send out is en route and I have less than five things to wrap. If it seems like I’m tooting my own horn, it’s because I am. I always say I’m going to do this, and having actually done it, I highly recommend it.

Preparing presents and cards isn’t the only thing good about Christmas, though. I really enjoy looking at Christmas lights at night, walking down 34th Street, putting holiday accessories on Bug, displaying my received cards, getting my picture taken with Santa, decorating my room and the cafeteria at work. Secret Santa at work started yesterday too, and we do little gifts for three days and then exchange the last gift on Thursday at lunch. Thursday is also the member party, which will be fun.
Here are some festive photos for your enjoyment. Can you spot the card you sent me?
I would also like to ask what your favorite kind of lights are. I really prefer the bright blue ones like you see in the first picture. After that I love the huge old school colorful ones. The ones I never see at stores anymore (except thrift stores). Which do you like the most?
