Didn't V just put the tree up a couple weeks ago? Didn't I just scale a questionable ladder to hang a wreath above the garage? Yeah, Christmas gets obnoxiously crammed down all of our throats for increasingly long periods ... but I like it.

One of our young'uns commented today that he usually feels "different" on Christmas, but didn't this year. We pointed out that since he's 17 now, maybe some of the magic has gone. I also pointed out that the magic can come back. Thankfully it has for me over the past several years.

So even though my personal moratorium on carols will soon come back into effect, I'll miss Sinatra's "Christmas Waltz," Nat King Cole's "O Holy Night" and Norah Jones' "Peace." Until next year.

For now, I've got a fire, some wine and some records - big round black ones, Johnny Cash, Lou Rawls and Astrud Gilberto so far - and my family. It's a great day. Merry Christmas.
