I am slowly but irrevocably getting into a Christmas mood. It's been dark outside all day. We have delicious foods cooking. I'm drinking red wine. "Baby, It's Cold Outside" is playing on iTunes. I crave the bite of cold air on my skin, the winter crowds merrily walking around the shops, the speculation on what presents my nieces might like.
Until today I had not felt it. But now.. watch out world! Christmas is coming, and I am ready.(1)
