Sometimes, there's nothing like being in a city to make you feel like Christmas is nearly here.
That's where I found myself last night as the family and I headed to Indianapolis to take in dinner and a show. Yes, that's probably the most old-timely thing I can remember saying in quite some time.
It was beautiful.
Block after block of Christmas lights and other pieces of holiday flair then we headed to the city's famed Monument Circle where Christmas lights are strung from the Indiana Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument, a 284-foot tall memorial honoring those who fought in conflicts up to the Spanish-American War.
Have a look.
Given that, it's hard to fault me for being in the holiday spirit and I could think of no song better for this mood than "Silver Bells," this version by country music superstars (yes, seriously) Lady Antebellum.
Two days until Christmas. Can you believe it?
