Ah, yes…the most wonderful time of the year.
I have an extreme case of mixed emotions in regards to how soon one can go into Christmas mode. For example, I went to Target on Halloween day, and when those automatic glass doors opened in front of me I was slightly disappointed to find Christmas banners looming overhead. I mean, they didn’t even let me celebrate Halloween without making me think about Christmas first!
I don’t want you to think that I don’t love Christmas because I do. In fact, I’ve been buying some ornaments and decorations for my first Christmas as a married woman and I’m biting at the bit to start decorating! On the other hand, it just doesn’t feel right to begin Christmas decorating until after Thanksgiving.
BUT my husband & I are going out of town until the Sunday after Thanksgiving. And that seems so long to have to wait for Christmas decorations! As you can see, I’m in quite a predicament right now. To decorate early for Christmas, or to not decorate early for Christmas? That is the question.
What about you? Do you sneak your Christmas decorations up a few days early? Or do you wait until the last-minute to decorate?
