Man I sounded like Scrooge in my earlier post. I attribute it to the fact that I was getting ready for work and not happy about it.
I am going to clarify. I love Christmas, in fact I get giddy at the thought of having my tree up and decorated along with the rest of the house. Just hearing the music all day at work get's to be a bit much but I should not have used the word "dread" before.
