My lights are going up on Sunday after the Mrs. flies to Memphis. She has had the Christmas blues with me being laid off for a month and a half and is totally against doing anything this year. Back to work now and full gear towards X-mas cheer!!! Presents are a mute point- as Tulinar said- it is a year round endeavor, not just on the holidays. Once she leaves, my son and I are going to light this candle up. She will come home to a Clark Griswold!!!
