Here are three things you need to note for future reference:
Don't plan a "quick trip" to Wal-Mart on the evening of December 23rd ever again!
Don't rub it in to your friends that live 'up north' about the really nice weather we're having in Dallas. It was a beautiful evening here last night with the temperatures in the sixties, (the high during the day got near 70 degrees)! I'm sorry to all my friends living in the northern states, I'm really trying not to rub it in... but this is one reason I love Texas.
Expect weird looks when you tell co-workers that you don't celebrate Christmas, that you're Pagan and that you celebrates Yule. Expect these same people, less than two minutes later, to wish you a Merry Christmas as they're leaving for an extended weekend.
**UPDATE** At 12:30PM on 12/24/09... it's SNOWING in Dallas!
