Anyone seen where the spirit of Christmas went?

I don't know whether it's the mild weather, the economic situation or what, but this year's build up to Christmas has been remarkably low key for us so far this year. We've been out to pubs and restaurants that would normally be heaving by now and they're not, shops and high streets are full of grumpy buggers and generally TV is full of nothing (not new, I know).

At least Southend's result has lifted the mood, but I hope things pick up or it will be New Year and we will be wondering where it all went. Normally I'm up for Xmas and nothing interferes, but I'm struggling this year. Tell me some good Christmas stuff people!!
