    25 Days of Christmas started much earlier in the day than usual. Usually it's only all day on the weekends, but they showed the old Rankin Bass Jack Frost special (blech!). National Lampoon's X-mas Va-ca is on tonight, so i'm excited for that.

    Oh, also, some awesome person out there actually reviewed Christmas Eve on Sesame Street! :

    Well, Christmas is off to a poor start this year with above average, spring-like temps for the next several days, but then by mid-week next week, we're supposed to bottom out into an arctic plunge, so hopefully by then it'll feel more like Christmas.

    I don't feel very Christmassy either, but honestly, i'm not so concerned about the weather as I am gettin' these darn Christmas decorations up. We still haven't done it even though we were gonna put them up the beginning of this week. For me getting the Christmas tree up is always when it starts feeling like Christmas for me.

    Elf is on tonight as well and that is just one of my least favorite movies. I had to see it last year for one of my classes and it’s just an unfunny movie in my opinion. I can’t stand that movie.

    You're subjective opinion is wrong. You lose 10 points, and move back 15 spaces.

    The movie is just unfunny and it’s my own opinion.

    Yeah, I know, i'm just joking you ;).

    You're still wrong though :).

    So have you ever noticed whenever a Christmas show, movie, or special does a story about why it shouldn't be Christmas every day, they usually go in either one of two routes:

    - There's like ELMO SAVES CHRISTMAS, where Christmas continues to be celebrated every day, despite the rest of life carrying on in terms of seasons changing, and other holidays arriving on their respective dates (like 4th of July).

    - Then you've got Christmas every day treated like a Groundhog Day Loop, where you relive the exact same Christmas Day over and over and over again, much like Disney did with Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

    Most I've seen are like Elmo Saves Christmas.

    The only benefit I see with the former happening is that it gives people in Australia and chance to experience Christmas in winter. :p

    Honestly though, on the subject of Christmas being every day, it's amazing how you would enjoy that as a child, but as you get older, you definitely would regret it.

    Heck, Christmas is just another regular day for me. The only benefit is just spending it with friends and family but that's about it.

    Christmas list just gets shorter and shorter.

    Yup. Every year, I ask my mom not to get me anything for Christmas, because I don't want/need anything . . . if I did, I would let her know. Last Christmas, she finally promised me that she'd comply with my request and no longer get anything for me for Christmas unless I explicitly ask for something. And she's broken her promise, and there's currently ten presents under the tree. Her explanation? The promise expired on December 31, 2016.

    On the subject of ESC, did anyone else besides me actually want one of those Moo Bunnies as a kid?

    That's a hard promise for a mother to keep. ;)

    My parents are only getting small gifts this year because we are going to Maine for 2 weeks next year and my dad is working overtime whenever he can to pay it all off.
