I am so not feeling the Christmas spirit this year. This time last year I had the tree up and decorated, most of my Christmas shopping done, a good start on my Christmas baking, and the out of town presents sent. This year . . . nothing.
Also about this time last year I started sharing some of my favourite Christmas songs - really beautiful songs like the Bing Crosby/David Bowie version of the Little Drummer Boy. This year I've found a few that are more appropriate to my mood. :-)
