I have to admit, I’ve had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year.
Typically I am that annoying person who starts playing Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving while I put up the tree and decorate the house. Usually, I’ve started Christmas shopping in October and would be pretty much done before Dec. 1. By now my coworkers and friends would be tired of the baked goods and yummy snacks I would have inundated them with on a daily basis.
But this year is not typical for a number of reasons.
