"So This Is Christmas ..."

Well, although I'm about a week late, today I managed to get all the Christmas decorations and whatnot up ... Even though I don't like Christmas, I usually feel it's okay with all the preparations, Christmas presents and decorations, but this year I don't have any Christmas spirit whatsoever ...
I've tried everything, I even made ginger-bread cookies (special gluten-free kind, which I've never dared to make myself before ... special doughs with special flower and whatnot), I listened to Christmas music, everything ... but no holiday spirit for me ...

Zorro helped with the decorations of course! :) As you might see in the pictures ...
In this first picture, he's on the table, along with most of my Christmas decorations! I wish I could have put a Santa's hat on his head, to make it look really Christmassy, but he would have none of it of course (and I can't say that I blame him either ...).
Here, in the second picture, Zorro has positioned himself inside the Christmas box, to check it out properly! :) Luckily I had already removed all the fragile stuff ... so I felt he could have his fun in the box! At least one of us has enjoyed the Christmas decorations today! :)

Apart from this I don't have much to write about it ... I'm still feeling rather sad and melancholy, it's sort of a general state of mind, that shines through most of what I do nowadays ... who knows, a change of scenery over Christmas might do me good.

Tomorrow begins a pretty horrible week for me. I have so much stuff that needs to be done, fixed and organized, and for the most part, I am dependent on other people to make this work. I don't have anything against the people around me, but it feels a little frustrating when I can't control how things will turn out myself ... instead the results of a lot of things will be determined by others, and yet affect me in a very real way ... and I never like that.

Take care guys!

Oh goodie!! Christmas pictures!! :) Love those!!

I'm actually worse than you this year....I tend to get started on Christmas as early as possible, and put up my entire Santa collection at the beginning of December usually. But this year I'm not in the mood for anything really...
So a couple of days I put up my "advent-electric-candle-holder" (the old one..the new one that I bought a few months ago...that I SOOO had to have is still in the basement...I have a feeling it will stay there...talk about a waste of money)..just so the neighbours won't get too worried... *lol*
And also last week I bought a small santa-kid for my collection (I just felt I had to buy SOMETHING...would feel odd to not get any new Santas at all..but this was the first year ever that I had problems finding one I liked...)..anyway, I put that one in my bookshelf when I got home, so I guess that counts as Christmas decorating too.... but that's it..
Let's hope I'm in a better mood next week....

Btw are those the Christmas cats you got at Liseberg last year??

Vad söt Zorro är!!! Kul med ljusstaken precis bakom. Ser ut som om han har ett ljus på huvudet, hihi.Ingen verkar ha kommit in i julkänslan än....tradigt ju..

Mmm, Zorro tyckte det var roligt att spana bland alla julsakerna! :)
Fattar inte heller varför ingen har kommit i julstämning i år ... ingen jag har pratat med har fått in nån riktig julkänsla - och det är ju snart lucia!!!

Glad you enjoyed my 'christmassy'-blog-entry ... even though I completely lack all Christmas spririt!
And yes, I think I bought one or two Christmas cats at Liseberg last year, I've bought the others here - I even think I got one from my Mum ... I have ... 5 all together now! *still collecting*

That's cool! :) Would be fun to see some more pics of them! :)

As for the lack of Christmas spirit..I blame it on the weather!! It's impossible to get into the right mood when it's always RAINING!! :(

Jessica said...

No problems - I'll see what I can do! :D
It's a bit crazy around here now, but I should get some time during the weekend ... I'll try to get some pictures then ... and one of Yeoteddy of course! *lol*

I think you're right, a lot of stuff is dependent on the RAIN ... it never does anything but RAIN ... how boring can it get ... *sigh*

The darkest night said...

Oh goodie!! thanks! Looking forward to seeing pics! :)

Yeah..I think so too...the rain always seems to make things worse...and it sure kills the Christmas mood...I know..."A little fall of rain can hardly hurt me now"...but THIS much rain is really starting to hurt!!

Jessica said...

I'll do my best to fix the pics during the weekend! :)

*hate the rain* It's just awful in every kind of way now: doesn't feel like winter, doesn't feel like Christmas, floods everywhere, roads aren't working, trains/buses are delayed/cancelled ... *sigh*

The darkest night said...

Thanks!

Yeah..it messes up everything!! It's should be cold and sunny outside..with snow!! Not rainy and boring!!
Although I shouldn't complain..for the first time in ages it's not raining here...

Jessica said...

Wow! Lucky you! It's been raining pretty much the entire day here ... again! *sigh* So what else is new!!
*starting to give up hope of "winter"*
