Is it just me or….

I realize I am not what one would call a Christmas person…to put it mildly.  But even so, it seems to me that this year, despite the start of Christmas carols before the Thanksgiving turkey was even cooked, and the appearance of Christmas decorations at the same time that Halloween costumes were being advertised, this Christmas has little joy or expectation. It seems strangely flat.  Just an observation from the scroogette on this end of the keyboard.
