Critical, if you haven't already tracked down a tree for you kitchen, I was cruising walmart dot com this morning and noticed a little inexpensive tree - black with red lights (!). The site showed it in stock at many stores in my area, so maybe you might find the same in your area. (And if you are one who does not shop that store, as I know it can be controversial, just forget I mentioned it. )
I'm having trouble feeling festive this year... have pulled out the boxes of decorations and looked inside them, but that's about it. I think this weekend the kids will help me decorate and that should get me into the spirit.
