A lot of people like to wait until after Thanksgiving or until DECEMBER (the shock!) to get in the holiday mood. But in the beginning of November? Is that really allowed? I must admit, that my husband and I did go to the mall 3 weeks ago and got a mini Christmas tree. It’s not just any old tree, it is a SNOWING Christmas tree! (We bought it early BECAUSE the store always sells out of the shipments in like a week, so they ordered to arrive in the beginning of October. To be fair, Matt and I deliberated about buying the tree for a week before deciding it was a worthwhile purchase. It is going to decorate the house for 1/6 of the year- EVERY year anyway).
I asked a friend what she thought, and this friend says that the holidays elicit a happiness among people, and that the holidays to her, are more about getting together with family and creating memories. Plus it puts everyone in a good mood- so you can’t go wrong there, right???
I can whip out my Christmas books and watch my Hallmark Christmas movies (on the Hallmark Channel, the kickoff to the Holiday season Spectacular just happened with the Countdown to Christmas on Friday October 26- to give us all a full 2 months before December 26, the day after Christmas. Maybe I’ll just leave the snowing Christmas tree in my basement for a couple more weeks.
