I have been having a really difficult time getting into the Christmas Spirit this year. So much seems to be a mess with the worlds. We have suffered under 8 years of a failed administration. We have watched the economy tank. We have wittnessed significant losses of freedoms and civli liberties. Our government truly cannot be trusted — The Bush Administration has repeatedly proven this. We are involved in two foreign wars. It just is not a good time in America — or the world for that matter. So I guess it is the weight of all this that has made it hard to get excited about Christmas.
I feel guilty about not being in the Christmas Spirit. I should be more exited. I’ve got a good life and a great family. Have I somehow failed since I am not excited about Christmas? Shouldn’t the father of a soon to be one yar old be more excited about Christmas…Especially when he’s only got one child who is the most awesome little boy?
Maybe I am being to hard on myself. Maybe Christmas just isn’t as exciting when you are an adult.
