Mind you, there has not been an actual "bah humbug" uttered by me. OK, maybe there has been a bah or two.
Getting fired up for Christmas usually is as easy a proposition for me as it is for a Kardashian to find minute to pose for a cameraman. But this year, the spark hasn't been lit, probably because there have been so many sad things going on both in the news and within the circle of friends and family I cherish.
It may be beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but it has not felt that way.
