There are so many good things about you: the music, parties, concerts, basketball games, football bowl bids, Christmas trees, angel trees, driving to look at the lights, packages, excited kids, and old Christmas movies and specials.
Too bad the downside cancels everything else: finals to write and grade and semester grades to figure. *sigh*
You could do a little something to even the playing field. How about snow? Just a little snow with big fat flakes! Yes, I could do with one of those "Christmas Card" snows. Soon!
