But then suddenly Christmas season is upon us, and it falls upon us earlier every year; this year, for instance, I notice that Target stores are opening at midnight Thanksgiving night to give overly anxious shoppers a headstart on "Black Friday", that nightmare shopping day.... and then the race to 25 December begins.
James and I have another headstart to Christmas -- I was given some more "blogger" free tickets to a preview of the Guthrie's A Christmas Carol this evening. The Guthrie Theater has done A Christmas Carol for 35 straight years. It's always an extravagant production, changing a little each year. Maybe it will get us in the mood. Or maybe we'll be bah-humbugging out into the cold.
