So, I was playing around with some of Google Labs offerings, and I stumbled upon Google Trends. A quick search for "Christmas" revealed the sad truth. People just don't seem to care as much about Christmas as they used to. Last year I was in a funk around Christmas time and was so disappointed because it felt like everyone else was too. Now I have evidence to back up my feelings.
I am not going to stand idle and let this happen. This has renewed my interest in celebreating Christmas. My lights are going up and my friends are going to know that we should all be celebrating. I'm tired of the focus being on how much crap can be sold to the masses. I just want a good old fashioned Christmas celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
