Creating Christmas

This year I really feel Christmassy. I usually root for the Grinch come Christmas, but this year I am feeling especially ready for the gaudiness and panic. I suspect it has to do with the weather. Bergen just had its second-wettest November ever (last year's was wetter) with a few other statistical notables: Warmer than average and not one day without precipitation. We're at December 3 and have had only one day of frost so far and that was November 2. The relentless "this would be summer if the trees had leaves" is making many of us long for the picture postcard version of this time of year.

So, inspired by a tree I found, I changed my wallpaper to show snow, and went searching for lights and snow for my Mac desktop. (The snowflakes are animated.)

very nice! I love the lights around the edge of the window...
as for me, I got out the old fake xmas tree (real ones are like ***eighty dollars*** here in TX, so I bought a fake a while back), and it's ready for the lights. I'll likely do that this afternoon...

My fiber-optics tree conked out on me, so this year I have some flashing white lights in the window. No tree.
