MWC Daily: Roy Finds Out I Just May Be a Scrooge!
As we roll into the heart of the Christmas season, Roy is quickly discovering I just may be the female version of Scrooge!
See, I don't decorate my house for Christmas. My logic is this: I don't have any kids and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are always spent with others, so why do I need to go through the hassle of decorating every year? Don't get me wrong, I'm not a hater of Christmas, I enjoy time spent with family and friends. I actually don't mind going to the malls during the season and doing my shopping. I just don't see the need to put up a tree/bows/stockings/etc. Do you think I'm a scrooge?

Clouds with scattered rain showers high 48...snow or wintry mix changes to rain showers this morning high near 42.
