And So It Begins

XM satellite added the Holly channel to its line-up this morning. Carols have been playing over the speakers at the Hellmouth since the day after Halloween. Our town’s Public Works department has been instructed to start hanging the Christmas lights and, last night; the Man-Cub presented me with a Christmas wish list as long as my arm.

The mad holiday rush is, as they say, on.

Last year, due to the job change and the general chaos that it created, I was less Miss Merry Christmas and more Ebenezer on a Bad Day but, thankfully; this year I am feeling far less scrooge-ish and far more energetic and I know we are going to have a great time.

Jana and I have already informed the husbands and the children that we will be going caroling this year, reactions to this statement were mixed:

Kaley-Yippee!

The Man-Cub-I can play my trumpet (um…I’m not sure that Mary Had a Little Lamb is quite the song we are going for but, thanks for the offer)!

Hugh-Riiight.

The Girl-Oh god! What if someone I know sees me!?

Chris- No. Just, no.

Obviously, we are still working out the details.

I think you are brave for wanting to go caroling!
