I've been kidnapped by Santa

Something is very wrong. You see I never celebrate Christmas. I'm not Christian, nor am I into the commercialism of the whole thing. So there's no reason for me to celebrate it. I never ever have a holiday tree, unless you count the one year I ordered an inflatable Christmas tree just because I thought it was so funny. I also don't tolerate Christmas music or buy gifts. Okay, I'll buy gifts for my SO because who doesn't want an excuse to buy their sweetie a gift? And my family of grandparents and aunts and uncles pretty much require that I show up with gifts. It is heavily frowned upon if I do not. So I order gifts for them every year because it is required. But that's it. Otherwise I just pretend every year that this holiday doesn't exist and stay away from Christmas music and malls.

So what's very wrong this year? Brace yourselves. For the first time I ever I actually *want* to celebrate Christmas. I keep looking at holiday trees at the store and coveting them and when I heard Christmas music on the radio today, I did not turn it off. Perhaps it is related to my recent desire for family. Or maybe having a business of my own has caused me to grow up. I don't know. I just know I want Christmas music and holiday decorations and my extended but distant family about me. I'm even uploading my holiday icons early this year. What's up with that??

I think I'll go on iTunes now and download "Do They Know It's Christmas."
