Well spotted, but with Christmas Carols already being sung this should entice even you to have more Christmas spirit (maybe)...
Christmas carols do not make Christmas. I am not a Christian and I do not drink alcohol. So their will be no spirit (Christmas or otherwise here).

Some of the above is true anyway.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get me

True but I am wishing people I will not see before the big day a Happy Christmas. But on a personal note I am in Advent mode so having an Advent Fast as the Celtic Christians of the past did. When I was small things were only available at Christmas but now, like Hot Cross Buns, they are available all the year round. So to make Christmas food more special I am going without my usual treats from 1st to 24th December and thinking of what Advent means and looking forward to Easter time as well Christmas. In thoughts not in buying any Easter eggs I find on sale of course.

And on Swagbucks yesterday there was an instant survey I missed:

Instant about Easter cooking/baking!

I know I make my Christmas cake well ahead of time but even I think it is too early to bake for Easter

I doubt it. Can you imagine the uproar at something that controversial!

Oh. Wait.
