Tis the season...?

Right now is the first time I've really felt like it was getting close to Christmas. I'm in a computer lab (hostel computers are not working) and there is Christmas music playing. Kiwis--at least those in Wellington--don't seem to get too festive. Christmas is celebrated here, for sure, but decorations and seasonal spirit is lacking. Not that I'm particularly festive this time of year--I don't care for Christmas music one bit. It's just that it's hard to believe the year is coming to and end without the constant reminders of the season--trees everywhere, garland, signs in shops wishing you a "Merry Christmas!" It's just not everywhere, in your face like it is back home. But nonetheless, it is almost here, and I will get two days off from work because of it--the 26th is a public holiday here too!

Dude, just got back to Omaha a few days ago... talk about a city that overdoses on Christmas spirit... not one, but two (basically three with KGOR) Christmas music channels. It's a little much. Southern California has one channel that plays Christmas music. Anyways, awesome job on the promotion at the restaurant.

How's this for holiday spirit? I had an Ebenezer stout in your honor tonight at happy hour.
