Christmas is coming ...
Not that I'm trying to rush it or anything ... but it's definitely on its way. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving ... so there's no way you can make me rush the coming days by to get to the Christmas season! I was amazed yesterday when I went to the grocery store that Christmas candy was out already! (Ugh ... commercialism!) But ... it's the way of the world I guess.
Anyway ... the ONE thing that I usually take care of before Thanksgiving for Christmas time is scheduling a dinner and date to go see the tree at Rockefeller Center. Ever since my grandmother died in 2001, it's been a way to keep her love of Christmas and especially the Rockefeller Center Tree with me every year. It doesn't matter how many times I've seen it, it still amazes me. The sheer size and grandness of it all.
We missed it last year. I missed it. With everything that had been going on in our lives, I just couldn't make myself go. Now, it's a year later and I'm wondering if the Christmas Spirit will be in me this year. I know that the others love this tradition and understood when we dropped out last year. Hopefully I won't disappoint them - or myself this year. We'll have to wait and see.
