Did you know that there is less than 6 weeks until Xmas? That seems very soon.
I remember when I was a young boy, I always would get SO excited at this time of year. I knew Xmas was just around the corner after my birthday passed.
Back when I was that young age, I used to get excited for the presents, definitely the presents. Now, I am far more excited for the time off from everything. Lately in my life, the net book value of vacation days has gone way up. Especially for Christmas holidays when we get like a full week off, how sweet it that?
One thing about this time of year that hasn't changed, is my excitedness for the snow to come. I have always really liked snow. Growing up in Vancouver we hardly got any, and I guess this is to blame for why I love the white stuff so much. When it did snow when I was young, it was like white gold. All the kids on the block would be outside, making snowmen, riding sleds, generally having a great time. These experiences probably have built to my overall love of the snow and the holiday season.
Maybe it's a little early, but what the hell:
