So it’s the day after Thanksgiving.
The official start of the Christmas season.
But I must confess – that we’ve already started. (Oh dear – I just heard some of you gasp in horror!)
Normally we would wait till today to pull out the Christmas music. But to be totally honest – we’ve been listening now for weeks.
Yes, weeks. We caved in early November. I must have heard O Holy Night by at least 4 different artists at least 2 dozen times already. And loved every one.
It’s not just music. We already put together 2 of our Christmas puzzles, drank peppermint hot chocolate, and started Christmas shopping.
When we cave in – we really cave.
And the Christmas movies! Oh my! The girls and I jumped in with both feet. Our favorite evening activity is to curl up in quilts watching a Christmas movie, trying to guess how it ends.
Popcorn and hot chocolate make it even better.
But the wait is over – it’s now officially Christmas season! We don’t have to hide our Christmas spirit anymore!
I can’t wait to start baking!
And making candy!
Anybody want to go caroling?
And may I be the first to say, “Merry Christmas!”
