Welcome to the Christmas Season

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!”
