Our traffic reporter, Bob Williams, came into the studio at 5:33 this morning, and happily announced "just three more weeks until Christmas!" 

We've been good friends for almost 20 years, but I had to seriously resist the urge to slug him.

Maybe it's the hectic nature of life these days, or the unseasonably mild weather, but I am simply NOT ready. I even tried to get into the spirit with my kids last night, putting Christmas music on the car radio. Even my 14 year old said, "Dad, turn that off....it's not even Christmas yet."

We've been bombarded with holiday sales and decoration since before Halloween, but where is our spirit?

I bought my first gift this week, and have a long way to go to get through my list. If I can't find some holiday spirit, I may be one of those panicked shoppers trying to find anything to wrap on Christmas Eve.
