I have my radio station tuned to Christmas only music.
I have my cinnamon candles burning.
I've had my fair share of Christmas cookies and hot chocolate.
My lights are up on the house, my Christmas tree is set with ornaments on the top half of the tree only (the plastic, non-breakable ones on the bottom of the tree keep mysteriously disappearing...), and my decorations are up.
We've been teaching the kids about the Nativity story.
Heck - I've even wrapped some Christmas presents. But it wasn't until today, when I left Wal-Mart feeling like I had spent half of our paycheck on gimmicky stuff such as a Lightning McQueen Bubble Bath, Tinker Bell coloring kit, candy canes, and Pez dispensers that I really felt in the Christmas Spirit.
