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!”

  1. I was right there with you. Our tree went up the week before last, and my Christmas cd’s have been playing in the car since Halloween. I even have a big part of our gifts wrapped. I’ve decided I’m getting all the mundane stuff done early so I can spend the next few weeks just soaking up the wonder.

  2. I love this post & I love you, my friend! Such a joyous time of year & our family is enjoying every minute of it as well! Wish it would slow down a bit…

    Much to the girls’ delight, I came home with several new Christmas movies after a day of shopping on Tuesday. 😉 I think we’re nearing the 80 movie mark about now… Eeeek! So fun!

    Oh & “Merry Christmas” to you, too! <3

  3. I am ahead of the curve this year and I must admit it surely is nice! Next week I will have to have another shopping spurt and try to finish… I love the holiday season!
