When you see the "Surfjohn Stevens Christmas Sing-a-Long: Seasonal Affective Disorder Yuletide Disaster Pageant On Ice", witness your best friend spin the "WHEEL! OF! CHRISTMAS!" alongside the big man Sufjan himself, and all of this while being with your best friends in the whole world, it's nearly impossible not to feel completely ready and excited for Christmas.
There was in infectious love and certain camaraderie in the air with the crowd at that show that left me pretty much beaming. It's carried on into this week and I truly feel that Christmas is here.
There's a crazy wild blizzard happening right now and to see all the snow makes me feel pretty good inside especially when you can hibernate in a room like mine where twinkle lights, incense, and art supplies are in abundance.
I hope you're all feeling what I feel:
that Christmas feeling.
