Subject: we'll have halloween on christmas
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas but I will be sure to let you know when it starts feeling like Christmas. To me, Christmas is starting to lose it's luster. The holiday itself has become so overcome with the stress of holiday shopping and buying everyone that perfect present that it has left the true meaning of Christmas buried beneath a rubble of crumpled up wrapping paper, shimmering bows, and new gifts. The perfect gift for me would be something that you can't buy from a store. Those new gifts that were the reason for all of the holiday stress eventually become old, break, or end up in a free box at a garage sale. The gift I wish to receive cannot be wrapped up in a box, for that feeling of love and joy that I used to feel gush over my family cannot be wrapped up in bright red wrapping paper with various pictures of Santa Claus on it. To end this novel, all I'm saying is that I sometimes feel as if the Grinch should pay us all a visit to resurface the feeling of Christmas that I adore and miss so much.

i dont think it feels like christmas either. i didnt realize christmas was on saturday until yesterday.

im not even as happygiving presents as i was before. im thinking budget-wise "what can i get my friends and still have money left over?"

i never used to think like that. ever. in the past the goal was to spend my money as fast as i could so everyone i had ever met got something from me.

christmas has definitely lost its luster.
