it’s already halfway through December and 10 more days before Christmas. somehow it still doesn’t seem quite right. where is She?
the Christmas decors hanging around are at a minimal, and i have hardly heard Christmas songs. one night while i was on the phone, i heard carollers singing a medley of popular holiday tunes to that big house next to our apartment. that seemed rather odd for me. only once, too, did i see a group of little kids going from one house to another, singing a carol or two, including their very own version of Jingle Bells complete with the wrong lyrics and all that. then again maybe i haven’t really been looking much or haven’t been listening well?
(ack! i just realized that i don’t have a single Christmas song in my playlist or in any of my music repos.. .)
so maybe back at home i was just used to handing out some coins (.25 cents.. .cheapskate!) or a handful of candies to kids going door to door every night. armed with a ladder, a hammer and some u-nails, every year i usually would be the one putting up the Christmas lights and decors outside the house during the end of November. by now i should have been stuffing my tummy on my 3rd or 5th Christmas party. hahaha.. .
