Where’s Christmas?

Somehow it just doesn't feel like Christmastime to me yet. Even though I've got a little tree in my living room, even though my neighbors are having a tamalada tomorrow, I just don't feel the spirit. Maybe because I was wearing flip-flops around today? Maybe because I bought all my presents online this year? I'm sure I'll get shocked into the Christmas spirit next week when I return to Boston — it just doesn't seem like Christmastime unless it's cold. I hope it snows!
