I know it is not Christmas yet, not even the month of Christmas, but I usually start decorating that day after Halloween. But for some reason, this year I am late. I have just now started to decorate, and not much. I have not even decorated the outside. I put a wreath up, but I am having difficulty getting into the spirit of Christmas this year. I do not even know why. This is my favourite time of year, and I have made all the plans, but I am feeling a bit less in the mood. Does that ever happen to you?
I do not know what is the reason for this lack of spirit. Could it be that snow is not on the ground? I doubt it because I have lived in the South for many years without snow. I do think snow makes Christmas much more magical. Could it be the lack of money this year? Things have been tight with prices rising, but this is also not new. I have made Christmas with barely any money and still had plenty of Christmas spirit. I am unsure what this lack of motivation could be, but I have started watching my Christmas movies and baking to see if my spirit can be lifted to my normal, joyful state. Let’s see if that helps. If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.
