There are certain things that just fell like Christmastime to me. One is going to look at Christmas lights. Last night me, Sherry and the girls loaded up and rode through Greer checking out the light displays. The main thing we are looking for on those trips is excess. When it comes to Christmas lights you can never have too much as far as I'm concerned. The closer the house comes to looking like Clark Griswold decorated it the better. Last night we found a great display in Greer right off of Hwy 101 near Victor Baptist Church. If you live in town here you should check it out.
Another thing that feels like Christmas to me is eating lunch at the Beacon Drive-In. I know that's not a normal Christmas tradition but, I've been eating lunch the week of Christmas at the Beacon for about 14 years now. I just got back about an hour ago from eating a plenty plate, and now I'm remembering why I only eat there once a year. It's a great way to get my digestive tract greased up and ready for all the food I'll eat this Wednesday night and Thursday at lunch.
Those are two of my traditions that get me feeling all Christmasy. What are yours? Leave a comment, and let me know.
By the way for all of you out there who were complaining that the warm weather we had last week didn't feel enough like Christmas, I hope you're happy today. The single digit wind chill would have Santa himself running for cover.
