i'm really trying to get in the mood...
I don't know about you guys, but it's pretty hard to get in the Christmas spirit when the weather is not the typical holiday weather. It's been fairly warm here and still feels like early fall. My mind can't grasp that Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is in about a month.
It's way too early for me to start listening to Christmas music which always helps the situation, however tonite we are venturing off to see one of my favorites - The Nutcracker.
Years have gone by since I have last seen it or really even listened to all of the music, but there's something about the sounds that are dreamy, magical, peaceful, and enthralling. Just the thoughts of snow, the Sugar Plum Fairy, angels, and the Waltz of the Flowers envelop me like I'm actually in the play with them. Strange, I know, but it's just so wonderful.
Tonite is going to be different for a change, so I can't wait to go.
Cheers to starting off the Christmas season just a bit early!
