the weather outside is frightful...

...but the fire is so delightful, and since we've got no place to go, let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!

If you've had the wonderful fortune of spending any time with me in the last few days, you'll recognize the above as something I've been humming and singing under my breath.

I love Christmas.

You know how everyone complains about how stores put out their christmas decorations right after Thanksgiving, and carols start getting played in stores... pretty soon it looks like Santa vomited everywhere from all of the Christmas cheer and merriment that gets strewn all over any available surface.

well. I love it.

I can't wait to do some early Christmas shopping with my wonderful Viking. I normally avoid Oxford Street on weekends like the plague, too many tourists and pushy shoppers running around, but with the lights lit up and a new Anthropologie store to explore, what's there not to love?

I think part of my Christmas cheery mood is also because i just watched 'A Christmas Carol' with T. tonight. The movie surprised me, not only because it turned out to be in 3D so we got to wear really cool shades, but it was a lot darker than I thought it'd be. I think I have a new favourite Christmas movie to add to my ever growing pile of movies to watch in the xmas season...

they include (in no particular order)

1. Love Actually (which will be made even better this year because I actually live in I only need to find a cute Brit who'll serenade me with flash cards at my front door)

2. Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer (but the freaky claymation one from the 80s)

3. All I want for Christmas

4. Elf - who doesn't want to put maple syrup on everything?

5. It's a Wonderful Life (this year I want someone to lasso the moon for me)

6. Christmas with the Kranks
