X-mas Spirit, Not Me

My horrible neighbors have struck again. On December 1st they decorated every square inch of their front yard with Christmas kitsch. It’s bad over there. There are more plastic Santas that I can count. There are reindeer that pathetically move their heads up and down. There are seizure-inducing flashing lights hanging from every surface. There’s even a very fake-looking plastic nativity scene with a premature Baby Jesus in it.

But the worst thing is the X-mas musak. Somewhere over there is a 25ร‚ยข speaker that blares tinny, tacky, warble-ey Christmas carols from noon (when they wake up and turn it on) until 4 am (when they get home and turn it off) each and every day. I’m so sick of listening to X-mas muzak that I want to vomit. Can you tell I’m not in the Christmas spirit yet?

Maybe I need to sneak over there and destroy the muzak maker? That would go a long way towards putting me in the Christmas spirit, well, at least it would go a long way to making my perpetual headache go away.

    Wow!!! That is bad. I definitely can relate. Not here in Tulum. But when we lived in SF we had some pretty bad ones too. I hope it gets better. Or that this is some strange electrical failure on their house alone. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mercifully, we have very little Christmas schlock in our neighborhood. It can be hard to find your Christmas spirit here in the tropics. We have kids, so, like it or not, Christmas is coming to my house!

    For years my daughter and I have referred to a house a block away as the “Griswolds”. There is not a spot on the house or in the yard that is not lit up. In additional many of the yard decorations are tacky, tacky, tacky. At least they don’t play music or maybe I just have not heard it since I usually only pass that house in my car.

    I feel your pain, here in Cozumel, we host the black sheep relatives of your neighbors. This year husband and I have a bet that all the christmas shlock doesn’t come down before the rains take it down in April.
