    Christmas spirit is all over the place here... we venezuelans love our christmas so much we start decorating in november... at home we started decorating the tree on the first weekend of november actually (I'll edit with some pics when I get home.. ), and by the second week of november it was very common to see decorated homes all over the place, and the radios were already full of christmas music too...

    Yesterday it all started officially, though... most big companies had parties to light up their big decorations, and we have quite a few of them. I wanted to go to the christmas park (we have one named like that here.. ) where the main aluminum production company lights up a giant 4 stories high aluminum-made christmas tree very close to my home, but I had to work late, so I guess I'll go one of these nights..
    "If you put together all the work I did on "Shrek", I would say I have spent more time promoting it in the last three days than I did actually working on it... When you compare that to the amount of work that the animators and producers put into it, I’m embarrassed to get all the attention and praise for it." - JOHN LITHGOW

    Locoman, do you celebrate on the 6th of Jan, or Dec. 24 - 25th? I know that in my culture, Jan. 6th is the day of "los reyes magos", and the 24th is Noche Buena.

    Sadly I lost my christmas spirit when a reindeer stepped on my big toe..... with santa on it!

    Ok back to reality:
    I lost my christmas spirit because i'm away from my home. It's Just not the same in a different country.
