    I was thinking about this this morning. It seems I have fond memories from growing up but I just don't feel like I'm giving my kids those fond memories for when they grow up. It's like I just don't have it in me to decorate and celebrate.....

    Everybody's grown and gone here but I still put up holiday decorations just because I enjoy them.
    I don't do as much since it's all up to me but friends and family do seem to like them.

    Christmas will be more of a downer this year...my grandma just passed away last night. I AM going to decorate this year, though, even if it's by myself. She always enjoyed looking at our tree, lights and decorations so I'll do it for her.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Ilikefree.

    We lost my husband's mother on Christmas morning so I know all about the downers of the holiday.

    Pepperpot, that's funny that you say that. I think we had it better as kids because we all had less. Things were slower back in the day & it made for more magic of the season. Now it's a huge fight. Fight for sales, fights over people allowing to celebrate Christmas, fights in traffic. Fights fights fights. That is what this time of year has become
    FOR EVERY LAW THAT IS PASSED, WE LOSE A LITTLE BIT MORE OF OUR FREEDOM.

    Well put all you decorations up, wrap the presents...and when your unwrapping them all (because you bought for yourself) and when they ask, where's mine? Nicely say "oh, you haven't cared about Christmas in years, so I figure you did't want the gifts....Merry Christmas to me!"


    P.S. I saw your Grandma's pic. in the paper, I'm really sorry for your loss. Remember, she lived a good, long life and she loved you !
