Does anybody mind if we celebrate Christmas in January this year?

This time of year I am usually feeling all smug and superior when I hear my co-workers and family talk about how much they have left to do to get ready for Christmas because by the Saturday after Thanksgiving I am DONE. House decorated, gifts wrapped, baking packaged and in the freezer. This year not only am I not done, I haven't even started! Haven't bought the first gift, haven't made noodles, haven't made fudge, haven't baked cookies, no rum cakes....haven't even bought wrapping paper. Soooo, guess it's time to haul out the ole ATM card and hit this evening. The holiday parties start this Friday night and go through the 21st of December....still trying to get that last Saturday night booked. Most people want their party earlier in the month but I haven't given up...yet. Come on people! Gather up 40 of your best friends, we'll book the best band in town, open up the bar and your party will be the talk of the town for years. OR...we could just X out that date in the reservation book, put on our fuzzy socks, pop some popcorn and watch Miracle on 34th Street. Hmmmmmm
