Like "I too have been a little depressed this year. As of today 12-11-08 I have not put up the first decoration. I was let go from my job on Dec. 1st which does not help matters. I will know next week if I will get unemployment or not. After reading the messages you have received, I too will go and put a few decorations up. Nothing that requires electricity this year. Happy Holidays to everyone. Linda"
