The weather is colder. I hear Christmas songs on the radio. I see Christmas lights and trees decorating the streets but do I feel the Christmas spirit? No.
Looking back at Christmas 2007, I had a better feeling because my finances were okay, gifts were already wrapped a month before the holiday, and debts were paid. This year is entirely the opposite.
One of my good friends told me that Christmas is just a commercialized holiday. Maybe so but it's also the time where families unite, enemies set aside their differences, etc. She also said that we should not wait for Christmas to show our good deeds. We should send our love all year long. So true.
I wish I can make a difference in other's people's lives so I can feel the Christmas spirit all year long. But in order for me to do that, I have to clear my head of all worries and my heart of all anger and my soul of all angst. It's a long process but I'll definitely get there...
